Canada-based artist Jessica Fortner has a special message that she wants to spread with her illustrative work,'UFO Burgers.' Fortner's UFO Burgers portray the future of food production, and features a character with multiple chins and fatty cheeks holding a UFO Burger.

Luckily I am not a fan of burgers. Jessica Fortner, with her illustration, is trying to convey the message, "Eat healthy and be healthy."

Implications - The fast food industry is constantly releasing more shocking food items that are increasingly indulgent in terms of fat content and ingredients. From the Baconator to the Double Down, fast food companies everywhere are producing more nutritionally detrimental food items whose shock value is increasing. But shock value is exactly what consumers are looking for when buying into a given product, so these products garner the most media attention, and as a result, are purchased the most.
