If you thought eating tacos couldn’t get much more fun, you should get familiar with the Taco Cannon.

Created by Torchy’s Tacos in Austin, Texas, the cannon shoots out tacos into the waiting crowd outside the restaurant while people clamor around trying to catch one. The tacos are wrapped up in bandanas, and shot up to 200 feet in the air, clearly a demonstration of the Texas "go big or go home" mantra. The cannon uses compressed carbon dioxide to launch the delicious food at the crowd, causing quite a stir.

When it comes to extreme eating, nothing beats being fed out of something like Torchy’s Tacos’ Taco Cannon. Stats for Fast Food Launchers Trending: Older & Warm
