2013 - 2016 - ‘Why Would You Eat That’
Why Would You Eat That? It’s a question we don’t ask ourselves much when we’re eating food that we’re used to. But what about strange or exotic foods we don’t have much experience with? At some point someone had to try it. From mopane worm to sesos and hachinoko to hot dogs, using animation, mixed media and video, we explored the historical background of these exotic foods. While trying our best to answer the question why ‘would someone ever put this in their mouth in the first place’ in a humorous way? At the end of the episode we would bring the foods into our office where we’d beg and cajole our coworkers into trying it.
‘Why Would You Eat That?’ was one of the launch shows for the Youtube channel Tasted that garnered millions of views over it’s 50+ episode run it’s popularity with the fans would even generate two spin offs: ‘Why Would You Eat There?’ a travelogue type show in cooperation with Zagat and the ‘Why Would You Eat That: Challenge’ where comedians would challenge each other to avoid having to eat some of the more exotic foods.
