Default 1050 strip bacon burger from BK

100 Yen ($1.25) for an extra 15 strips of bacon. This guy did that 70 times and this is the result.

It's not real bacon, it's made from Kobe Beef

I concur, that's like cheap. Heck the grocery store is charging like $4 for a pound package, which I think has 15 or so pieces and it's not even cooked yet.

I'm going to call BS on this one. First, they wouldn't have a bag big enough for all that Bacon, second, you'd probably have to wait an hour for them to cook it all.

Do they use precooked bacon? (which sucks compared to real freshly cooked non-Kobe bacon)
