‘Mukbang’ – Making Money Just For Eating On YouTube [VIDEO]
Just when I thought I had heard it all, and seen it all. Say hello to Mukbang. I had no idea that there was such a thing, and that there was a word for it.
Mukbang is is a live online audiovisual broadcast in which a host eats food while interacting with their audience. In layman's terms - people are making fat cash eating on the internet. Don't believe me? Check out the story above that recently aired on CBS Sunday Morning. The Mukbanger featured on the show is living quite the high life, just by making videos of herself eating.
Is this a fetish, like a foot fetish? Do some people have a food fetish? I guess we all kind of do, we all eat. However, I am not interested in watching people eat. I cannot stand people smacking their food and lips, chewing with their mouth open, and don't even talk to me about people eating crunchy food - I can't take it!
