It was always going to be unwise naming a restaurant that glorifies unhealthy food the Heart Attack Grill.I'll bet he'll say it was worth it...if he lives.
And on Saturday the inevitable happened when a customer suffered a cardiac arrest in the chain's Las Vegas branch.
An onlooker captured video of paramedics wheeling the unidentified man, thought to be in his 40s, out of the fast-food diner.
He was midway through eating a 6,000-calorie Triple Bypass Burger when he began experiencing chest pains.
The restaurant chain - founded in 2005 using the catchphrase 'Taste Worth Dying For!' - is run by a former nutritionist 'Doctor' Jon Basso who, remarkably, used to run a Jenny Craig weight loss diet centre.
He denied the incident was an elaborate publicity stunt....
The Triple Bypass Burger contains three slabs of meat, 12 rashes of bacon, cheese, red onion, sliced tomato and the Heart Attack Grill's own 'unique special sauce'. And that's before taking into account the accompanying 'Flatliner Fries', cooked in pure lard, and a giant soft drink.
