91-Year-Old Grandpa Gives Brutal Review of McDonald’s Limited ‘McSpicy’


A grandfather in Singapore tried McDonald’s McSpicy burger for the first time in a hilarious video where he described the meal as an “abomination”.

The video, posted on the Facebook group Subtle Asian Traits by Emerson Gideon Ng on May 15, shows the 91-year-old man tasting his first McSpicy.


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.”
