Raw chicken breast crawls off table in bizarre viral video as restaurant-goer screams in horror
The horrifying footage was posted by Florida woman Rie Phillips on Facebook two weeks ago which had garnered more than 4 million views.
In a presently-viral video on Facebook, which looks like something out of a meat-lover's nightmare, a piece of raw chicken appears to come to life and crawl off a restaurant-goer's plate and fling itself off the table.
The horrifying footage was posted by Florida woman Rie Phillips two weeks ago and has already been viewed more than 4 million times. It has been shared over 200,000 times and garnered around 65,000 comments on the social media platform.
The clip shows different cuts of raw chicken on a plate, garnished with greens, placed among other bowls and vessels of food on a table at some unknown restaurant. One of the pieces - described by many as a breast - appears to suddenly come to life and start twitching on the plate.
After hoisting itself upright, the piece of meat drags itself off the table. What made the video more chilling was the fact that the person who was recording the video could be heard in the background screaming at the unusual sight.
Although the exact restaurant where the incident happened was not identified, a number of people guessed that it might be Japanese, Chinese or Korean restaurant as the table featured a pair of chopsticks.
Although the video an eerie one, animals are known to have cadaveric spasms through rigor mortis after their death since it takes time for their nerve endings to cease movement. The fact was reflected in the comments on a number of viewers who did not lose their logical thinking after watching the video.
“Usually because the meat is so fresh the muscles can still move,” one person opined, while a second added, “It was so fresh that some of the muscles are still firing off signals.”
However, there were also those with a dark sense of humor, who said that they will refrain from eating at restaurants where severed pieces of meat come to life. “Hell no if my food is walking, I’m walking too," the commentator said.
There have been folklores dating back to 1945s where chickens managed to survive even with their heads cut off. One such hard-to-believe tale talked about a farmer named Lloyd Olsen who claimed that a beheaded chicken called Mike the Headless or Miracle Mike, lived nearly two years with just a bloodied stump where its head used to be.
