A man who buried a Big Mac Meal in his friend’s garden, has dug it up over a year later to eat as part of his milestone birthday celebration.
Matt Nadin, 40, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, bought a McDonald’s meal, complete with fries and a chocolate milkshake from a local branch back in November 2018.
Just before his 39th birthday, the-father-of-three decided to put the meal in a Tupperware container and bury it in his friend Andy Thompson’s garden.
He intended to dig it up on his 40th birthday which took place in November last year, but only recently found time to retrieve the meal.

Matt left the fast food dish deep underground for 14 months, but undeterred took it to the McDonalds restaurant where he had originally bought it and proceeded to eat the lot.
Stomach-churning footage, posted on Matt and Andy’s You Tube channel Beeper Beef, shows Matt burping and gagging as he consumes the soggy Big Mac.
He followed with a portion of dried out fries with mould in the middle and a lumpy milkshake
Is it dangerous to eat mouldy food?
Eating mouldy food will not necessarily make you sick.
It’s not the mould itself that causes the problem, but whether or not it has produced myotoxins, or fungal poisons.
Moulds that product toxins requires certain conditions to grow, therefore mould on food doesn’t always mean it’s toxic.
There is also a high risk of food poisoning caused by bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli.
The sales manager for a print company, who is proud of his ability to eat out of date food without being sick, took around 20 minutes to eat the mouldy meal and dubbed the bizarre stunt the ‘McDonald’s 365 challenge’.
He confesses parts of it were disgusting but said some wasn’t actually as bad as he was expecting it to be.
Matt also runs a channel called Finders Beepers, History Seekers which covers urban exploring, eating challenges and metal detecting.
He said: ‘The chips were horrendous, there was just no moisture in them at all.
‘The burger actually wasn’t too bad. It was soggy underneath and the lettuce tasted gone off but the meat was just hard.

The 40-year-old (pictured eating the McDonald’s) revealed he was inspired to complete the bizarre stunt after seeing something about someone else preserving McDonald’s meals
‘The milkshake had gone kind of fizzy and tasted weirdly like a fruit smoothie.
‘I have eaten some pretty weird things in my time and I remember seeing something where someone had preserved a McDonalds meal for years so I decided to take it a step further and eat it.
‘I’ve done weird food challenges since college just messing about showing off so I suppose that’s where it all started.

‘I have never been sick though. For some reason my stomach just seems to handle it.’
At the end of the video the serial prankster can be seen handing some of the remaining mouldy fries to a McDonalds worker as he walks out.
Matt added: ‘I have always been a bit of a joker and I had noticed a couple of staff looking as I was eating so I couldn’t resist giving them the left over fries to see how they reacted.
‘He didn’t do anything though – just stared at them. I think he was in shock.’
