Gamer Eating Habit Spoofs

MrTVCow Created a Hilarious Video on How Gamers Eat their Food

— May 6, 2014 — Pop Culture
YouTube channel MrTVCow created a viral video that depicts how gamers eat their food. Similar to last year's viral video "How Animals Eat their Food," this video gives a comical look at what the dining table would be like with surreal dinner guests; it showcases how a gamer's avatar would eat in real life.

The video references pop culture video games such as Minecraft, Sky Rim, Assassins Creed, Portal and Bioshock Infinite. The YouTube account owners took the form of their avatars and mimicked their in-game eating habits. The results are truly comical.

When mimicking Minecraft, the diner throws food up at his face quickly and makes overly exaggerated chomping sounds. Ironically, no food is actually consumed. Likewise, the Skyrim character's food just disappears one-by-one off the table.
Trend Themes
1. Gamer Culture Parody - There is an opportunity to create comedic content that pokes fun at gamer culture and provides entertainment and relatability for the gaming community.
2. Virtual Reality Dining Experiences - There is an opportunity to create immersive dining experiences in virtual reality that mimics the comedic and absurd eating habits shown in the video.
3. Gaming-inspired Culinary Creations - There is an opportunity to create gaming-inspired food and beverages that can be marketed to gamers, tying in with the humor and culture shown in the video.
Industry Implications
1. Entertainment - The entertainment industry can benefit from creating more gaming culture parodies and comedic content for the gaming community.
2. Virtual Reality - Virtual reality companies can create immersive dining experiences that cater to the gaming community, utilizing the humor and culture shown in the video.
3. Food and Beverage - The food and beverage industry can market gaming-inspired food and drinks to the gaming community, leveraging the humor and culture shown in the video.
