GLOSSYNEWS.COM – In our first-ever video report, we go behind the scenes at America’s 7th or 8th largest hot dog factory. We see what really goes into one of America’s most infamous foods.
What ingredients really go in a tasty tube of, let’s call it beef? Or should we call it meat? Or maybe “meat” with quotation marks.
This factory produces “Uncle Grizzle’s 100% Hot Dogs”. We were suspicious that their product claimed to be 100%, but conspicuously failed to specify what, exactly, it is 100% made of. 100% hot dog, one supposes, but what could that possibly mean?
Watch the video below and see for yourself.
WARNING! The video you are about to watch contains images some will find disturbing. If you have children, please take this opportunity to call them into the room.
EDITOR’S NOTE: This is my first effort at making a video longer than a single-take. I invested around 35-hours into the post-production using footage from Discovery Channel’s “How It’s Made”, as well as clips from the BBC version which haven’t aired in North America.
The clips come from about eight different episodes covering a wide variety of food and non-food products. The sound effects are all stock sounds (literally nothing from the original footage is used.) The voice over was recorded by Andy Chayer at MapleShade Studios in SeaTac, Washington.
Any ads you may see on or before the video are not placed there at my request. Discovery Channel has asserted copyright over the source material, thus any income derived is solely theirs. Guess I can forget about my customary $2 stipend per article on this one.
