Juice Boxes, Watermelons, and More Slo-Mo Exploding in a Microwave [Video]

In this terribly clever restaurant advertisement we’re treating to 500 frame-per-second slow motion video of everything from watermelons to beer bottles exploding in a microwave.

In this clever ad fro Moe’s Southwest Grill they’re trying to convey how microwaves ruin everything (and, the subtext we can then assume, is that they make everything fresh and don’t use a microwave) by showing how thins like watermelons, eggs, CDs, juice boxes, and suffer inside a microwave. While we’ve never heard of the restaurant in question that doesn’t stop us from appreciating their novel approach. Watch the video above to see just how sad life is when you’re a lime in a microwave.

    Moe’s is a burrito place similar to chipotle from what i remember when i lived in Avon Ohio and had one nearby. Very good food back then, I can’t say anything about now as I haven’t been to one in a while and many (not all) restaurants degrade in quality after being established for a while in my opinion.

    Moe’s is a smudge better than Chipotle, but the same concept. From what I know personally, there are quite a few in the Central Florida area. However, neither Moe’s or Chipotle is as good as Qdoba.

    I put a plate with gold on the outside and did the same thing.

    Moe’s is WAY better than Chipotle, better steak, better cheese, and better salad. Great ad :)

    Can the author possibly spell more words incorrectly than he did in this article? Did he get past Grade 4 in school?
