Ever wonder what $250 worth of McDonald's french fries looks like? Great news. Thanks to a bunch of kids in South Korea, you can stop wondering.


A sale on fries at the fast food chain inspired a group of kids to order a ridiculous amount of them, according to the website Rocket News 24. Their order was so massive, in fact, that the kids took over multiple tables at the restaurant with fries covering every inch of available space.


(Scroll down to see photo of the entire tables of fries.)


The french fry party may have been funny for those involved, but it appears to have peeved off the eatery's other customers, whose food was delayed. The kids got so rambunctious, that a fed up worker ended up telling all of the kids to leave, according to Rocket News.


McDonald's did not respond to The Huffington Post's immediate request for comment Wednesday night.


Apparently, "potato parties" are quite trendy at McDonald's restaurants across Asia. The low price of fries in Japan recently led to hordes of students descending on McDonald's and ordering massive amounts of fries as well. At said potato parties, attendees are required to eat all of the fries before leaving, according to the Japan Daily Press.


One group of kids in Japan purchased a total of 60 large orders of fries, according to Kotaku. (In case you're counting, that's 30,000 calories worth.)

stupid obsession with American culture...


i know a guy who lived in japan, and for some reasons the teens love all American, but they are misinformed about the reality. they still like the posters of Marlyn Monroe and Elvis in the American bars they eat fries and burgers in... and pay more then for a good quality meal form a nice Japanese restaurant.


so i can see how they would love the cheap price of fries in McDonald's. Everywhere else they are Premium! I used to be guilty of it myself. As a teen, I LOVED cheesebuger and fries, even at a cost and having to wait in line when they first came to my country.

They claimed other patrons were upset at the kids for taking over the whole restaurant. How ridiculous, as they only just have a row of tables.
I love McDonald's fries, so say why not to the "Potato Party." :rofl:

Yes and also, why should they care? The kids are there spending money so I don't know what their problem is. It's not every day someone comes into a McDonalds to buy $250.00 worth of fries!

How ridiculous when McDonald's hosts kids parties and has play equipment which kids play on and scream their heads off.

As horrible and delicious as that looks, they're paying customers spending a good amount of money, if they had a problem with it they should be refused the order, not complained
and kicked them out after they took their money.

Maybe they should have invited this chick to join the party. At 30,000 calories I am sure it would have helped her gain some weight. I am not trying to be funny or anything, but this lady really does needs a lot of calories and fat to be able to gain weight and live. It's very sad.
