If it wasn’t weird enough that Heart Attack Grill founder Jon Basso walks around in a lab coat and offers unlimited LDL bombs (such as the so-called Triple Bypass and Quadruple Bypass, featuring multiple meat patties and slices of bacon) to customers 350 pounds or more, the Vegas restaurant now displays the cremains of a past patron who died of a heart attack at the restaurant. In a clear plastic bag.
Basso says, “Do I want others to die at my restaurant? No. Actually I want to wake up one morning and open the door and have no one ever come in again, because maybe the world would have learned the truth…I say it boldly: Don’t come to my restaurant, it’s bad for you and will kill you.”
Interesting marketing concept, perhaps, but…Is it just me or is this a little…f***ed up?
