Sometimes when the craving hits, all you want is a nice, juicy burger cooked to perfection, sandwiched between a buttery, sesame seed bun. But if you just so happen to be anything like Hamburger Harry from Florida, you’ll need roughly 3,724 hamburgers to satisfy that craving.
We’re not talking about actual hamburgers, though.
Hamburger Harry made headlines recently for boasting the world’s largest collection of hamburger-related items (according to the Guinness World Records), and we have to say that it’s pretty damn impressive.
You can see for yourself that this guy’s love for all hamburger-related things has no bounds in the video above. Not only does an oversized sesame seed bun engulf him each and every night in a hamburger-shaped waterbed, but he’s got pillows, keychains, plastic knick-knacks and thousands of more burgers at his disposal.
Although you’d think a collection this impressive would have started out on purpose, it just kind of grew over the years. According to Harry, a friend once suggested that he start collecting burger merchandise since he already owned so much of it, to which he just shrugged his shoulders and started taking it more seriously. Now, people from around the world send him cool hamburger-themed products all the time.
He even collects objects like watches, sunglasses and t-shirts… because you always need to know what time’s burger time. (We’re guessing always?)
The most impressive thing in Harry’s collection isn’t the life-sized Ronald McDonald statue or the Big Boy replica either. It’s a working hamburger Harley, and it took Harry two years to build it.
This thing has everything, from a sesame top that flips up and a burger-padded seat for him to ride on, right down to pickle-shaped handlebars. Because, you know… sometimes you just want to grip a really big pickle.
Then there are the tamer items, like knitted burgers and furry stuffed versions. They’re all on display in and around the man’s home, which we feel like would be akin to walking into a clogged artery. Wouldn’t it just be ironic if all this guy ate was actually salad?
Even Harry’s car is covered in burgers, bringing a whole new meaning to the term “burger mobile.” Who knows if he’s even able to drive this thing. It looks like a bit of a road hazard to us.
We take back our earlier comments. To simply say this collection is impressive is an understatement. If anyone happens to have a bigger hamburger collection than Harry, we’d almost be too scared to see what that it looks like. Now please excuse us — suddenly we feel like having a Big Mac for lunch.
