Thanksgiving gives us an excuse to eat as much as humanly possible in one sitting. We stuff our faces with turkey and all the fixings, however, it is very unlikely that we ate anywhere near as much as food eating champ Takeri Kobayashi who devoured 7.5 pounds of turkey in ten minutes the night before Thanksgiving in front of a live audience in New York.

The event coincided with the launch of both his Facebook page and his Ustream channel which broadcast the feat live where it has been watched by 100,000 people since it first aired.

Kobayashi also participated in a Thanksgiving Day Banquet with other celebrities to bring food to the less fortunate. He plans to use his monster eating abilities to travel the country and  help people who don’t have the chance to eat as much as he can, which is pretty much everyone in the world.
