As it turns out, the McSpicy has had a sudden hype in Singapore during the country’s lockdown amid the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Mothership.
After seeing the advertisement for the burger, Ng’s grandfather was intrigued and wanted to try it.
A few days later, on May 14, his wash was granted. With a spoon and fork, Ng’s grandfather dug into the spicy burger. Unfortunately, his first taste did not go exactly as he had hoped.
He then gave it a second try with the addition of garlic chili sauce, but again, he was less than pleased.
In the video, he asked someone to make him a “kopi”, a traditional coffee served in Singapore, “to wash this abomination down.”
