Big Burger

An initiation ceremony - to eat 8 burgers within 60 minutes

A young City trader was made to eat burger after burger until he was sick, while surrounded by baying colleagues in an initiation ceremony at his firm.

The Mail on Sunday reports that a video has emerged of the incident.

In the footage, the 23-year-old man – who The Mail on Sunday has chosen not to name – is seen to become sick while he and another junior employee each attempt to consume eight quarter pounders with cheese at their office in London's financial district.

Wearing casual clothes on what was a 'dress-down' day at the firm, the newbie is then urged on by the colleagues around him to eat the burgers within 60 minutes. He is seen trying to force down mouthful after mouthful of food with gulps of water - but ultimately, he failed.
