A group of Japanese youths, who netizens assume are around middle-school age, decided to have an ‘off-line meeting’ at McDonald’s, where, liberated from the confines of their computers, they attempted to consume truly industrial volumes of fries.
The twitpic of the youngsters quickly went viral, spreading all over the internet and attracting thousands of retweets.
This is not the first time that a group of Japanese teenagers have taken advantage of the global fast food chain for their Twitter antics. But this time, eagle-eyed netizens are saying that this gluttonous gaiety did not take place in Japan. Still, the netizen, known as @Slasher_F, tweets in Japanese and describes himself an ‘overseas NEET’…

Group of What Appear to be Middle-Schoolers Have an Offline Meeting and Buy Loads of McDonald’s Fries
Comments from 2ch.net:
Dangerous levels of glasses going on.
They’ve got so much there they’re never going to be able to eat it all with that number of people.
When you say middle school, is that in a school for the disabled?
Sickening, I’d love to see the faces of their parents, bringing up kids like that.
And this is Japan?
They can’t be Japanese, can they?
The proportions of glasses and the proportions of ugly be way too high.
I thought they’d be living it up a bit more than that, but they’re just all sitting there eating in silence.
Looks pretty unhealthy
Was one of the conditions of participation was that you had to have bad eyesight?
This is disgusting. Both the volume of fries they’ve got and the faces of the kids eating them.
Middle-school kids, legging it to McDonald’s clutching their 500-yen coin pocket money.
Looks like fun…I wanted to do this when I was in uni
Well, there’s no harm in giving it a try once. But don’t do it a second time.
Every one of them has an otaku face, they’re disgusting. Hilarious.
Where’s that banknote from?
Is it Korean won?
Foreign NEET. From ‘over there’, are they?
They’ve got canned drinks that you don’t see in Japan, and the cars outside are driving on the right-hand side of the road, so I reckon it’s in Korea.
I love the expression on the old woman’s face watching them from behind.
Weren’t there some kids that did this even in Japan last year? When all sizes of fries were 150 yen. They’re just copycats.
I guess that the kids themselves definitely enjoyed getting attention from those around them. But it’s also OK if the other kids in their class point and laugh at this absurd group, who were all engaged in this shameless performance.
I always wonder about this, but is that paper that they put on top of the trays in McDonald’s actually clean enough to eat from?
There have even been kids in Japan doing this, though.
What the hell are these ugly four-eyed Otaku kids? Doesn’t look like they have any friends in school.
Don’t they sell contact lenses in Korea?
As far as I can confirm, 100% of those brats have glasses.
I’m concerned about how they’re going to feel the next day. It’s going to be pretty miserable when they try to shit.
What’s the problem if they can afford it?
This was my dream when I was in elementary school.
They shouldn’t treat food like this. I wonder if they ate them all?
Just glancing at it, I see fries, fries, fries. Then glasses. What’s so fun about it?
If they eat it all with no leftovers, then I think it’s amazing. Looks like a pig farm though.
