Carl’s Jr. Lobster Champagne Brunch Burger Taste Test | FUTURE FAST FOOD

Carl’s Jr. Lobster Champagne Brunch Burger Taste Test | FUTURE FAST FOOD

– The voice of Matthew
McConaughey once appeared in Carl’s Jr. Commercials. It’s just one of the
523 very important facts I know about Carl’s Jr. Another thing I know? Every last detail of their
next mega-viral menu item. This is “Future Fast Food.” All right, all right, all right. (upbeat music) “Future Fast Food” entry number 4,867. In my quest to predict and
make every viral fast food item of the future, today I find myself wishing upon the star of Carl’s Jr. Hardee’s? Carl’s Jr.? Yeah, whatever. It’s a story of family, a story
of passion, and most of all, a story of redemption still being written. In 2017, 12 years after Paris Hilton ate a Western Bacon Cheeseburger
while riding a bull in daisy dukes, Carl’s Jr.
launched an ad campaign apologizing for their misogynistic
marketing indiscretions. So where do they go from here? Will Carl’s Jr. find a way
to erase their indecent past and regain a sense of class? Carl’s Jr.’s gonna
realize they have to reach a new generation. A generation that doesn’t remember Kim Kardashian dripping ranch dressing on herself in a bathtub to promote the Cranberry Apple Walnut Chicken Salad. Carl’s Jr.’s gonna go after millennials, and what’s the only thing
millennials love more than, I don’t know, Wario
memes and a comprehensive student debt forgiveness plan? Brunch. The future fast food of Carl’s Jr. is the Lobster Champagne Brunch Burger. They just don’t know it yet. So we’ve gotta start off by making our Barefoot Bubbly Brut Rose hollandaise. So we gotta get this reducing in a pot. Then we’re gonna put the
reduced syrup right in there. (bottle cork pops) Nailed it, all right. Gonna get about half a
bottle going in there. The reason Barefoot Bubbly
is partnering with Carl’s Jr. is one, Carl’s Jr. is
not gonna be able to find any classy champagne brand
to go along with them. But, they did think this was owned by The Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten. It’s not. Either way, it’s the match made in heaven. We need to put a couple egg
yolks into a double boiler. Then we’re gonna put in a
little bit of Dijon mustard, little bit of salt,
little bit of lemon juice. You gotta whisk this up until you actually beat some air into the yolks. You’re gonna go ahead
and gradually stream in your melted butter. So you need this to gradually heat while you stream the butter in there to create an emulsion
similar to a mayonnaise while you’re heating all the way through. All right, so now we’re
gonna take a little bit of that Rose reduction, whisk that right in there. If you’ve ever wanted to get day-drunk on an egg yolk emulsion, today’s your day. So we got a whole lobster boiling here. And we just gotta take
him out of the water, and then that goes
directly into an ice bath. That’s gonna stop the cooking
immediately to make sure our lobster’s not completely
over and super chewy. One of the things about
lobsters everyone knows is that they used to be considered like the cockroach to the sea, right? They were fed to prisoners,
but as train travel became more and more
important, and popular people would take the train up to New England. They developed a taste for Maine lobster, and it got a rebrand. However, Carl’s Jr.’s
actually going to make the cockroaches of the
sea by crossbreeding the lobster with the
cockroach to reduce cost. ‘Cause the way this burger is right now, it’s gonna cost about $70. They’re gonna reduce cost and create truly a genetic nightmare and God’s mistake. So, now we can take the
lobster out of the ice bath. What we’re gonna do, cut off its tail. (chopping sound) Fantastic. (chopping food) So you’re gonna wrap the cloth in a towel. (mallet pounding) What we’re gonna do is
a quick butter-poach. We’re gonna add some sprigs of
thyme and rosemary in there. And we’re just gonna let the lobster rest in the warm butter. Now we gotta make our Thickburger. Thickburger is actually the
name copyrighted by Carl’s Jr. It used to be known as
the Six Dollar Burger. They named it the Six
Dollar Burger because that was the price you would’ve had to pay for a burger at a nice
sit-down restaurant, but now their Thickburger
is actually the cost of a sit-down restaurant burger at $6, so they had to rename it. And so, we’re just gonna take that, and we’re gonna put it (burger sizzling) right into a grill pan
to get those signature grill marks on it. You see a lot of people
like pressing their thumb into the middle of a burger
patty while they’re cooking it, and what that does, it actually
spiritually connects you to the cow. It’s kind of like a way to
give thanks to the animal for sacrificing its life so
you can provide nutrition for your body. Also, it prevents the
burger from like swelling up and becoming a softball. Just gotta flip this burger. (burger sizzling) Beautiful. To prove to Carl’s Jr.
that this can be made in the heat of brunch service in a quick and expedient manner, I’m gonna try and get this
in under four minutes. Start the clock. (upbeat music) (butter sizzling) (scraping griddle) Already going terribly. It’s like skating around to
make Paul Bunyan’s flapjacks. Okay. (cracking egg) So we’re gonna crack the egg in there. Fresh-cracked egg, people
think only McDonald’s does it. Not in the future. Carl’s Jr.’s gonna do it, too. We’re gonna get the burger
buns down there, and then, (scraping griddle) since the burgers are probably pre-cooked, we’re gonna throw that on there, and then we’re gonna melt
our cheese right on top. Now we play the waiting game. (burger sizzling) (drumming fingers) All right, since the egg’s
gonna take the longest to cook, I’m gonna do old diner
trick and just flip that. Let the cheese melt directly onto that. Afterwards, I’m gonna flip
it back, revert the invert, put the hot lobster tail on top of that to continue melting the cheese. It’s gonna shave at least
two-and-a-half seconds off my time. So, lobster tail. (food sizzling) All right, bun’s nice and toasty. And we got a little bit
of watercress down there. Watercress, easily one of the
top three most classy cresses. Like, it’s no pepper cress, but (snorts) you know what I’m sayin’? Cause it’s not frisee season yet. God, I love frisee so much. Aah, frisee is great. Okay, take our burger patty right on top of that cress. Take this off. Gonna get a little bit of
that hollandaise drizzled all over it. Gosh, that is so gorgeous! You can see the pink from the Rose. Remove the excess off that egg. (scraping griddle) Oh we’re 10 seconds, we’re so close! Maybe if you like breathe hot air on it. (blows air) I refuse to serve a
white that isn’t set yet. I have almost no principles
in life other than I’m not serving an unset egg white. That, I’m just gonna crown right on top. Time! – [Observer] 3:20 – 3:20? I’ll take that any day of the week. The whole rollout of this
brunch burger is centered on the idea of classing up
Carl’s Jr. by infusing it with heaping amounts of fanciness. Look! (majestic music) This incredibly fancy
burger for only $8.69. Nice, right? But for $9.99, you can upgrade to the Carl’s Jr. Classy Meal. “What’s in a Carl’s Jr.
Classy Meal?” you ask. Fancy this. Each Classy Meal comes with a Lobster Champagne Brunch
Burger, a medium drink, and a surprise classy trinket. Let’s see what’s in this Classy Meal. Whoa, it’s a monocle! So classy! But there will be a whole rotation of classy trinkets in there. Maybe you get a monocle, maybe you get a fancy letter opener, maybe you get a new gazing
ball for your garden. The point is, when people in the future think of Carl’s Jr., they think, “Classy.” Glorbglerp, come fulfill the prophecy. Feed me my fifth item. (Glorbglerp humming) Oh God, Glorbglerp, well
how did you get up there? That is, here, do you need– (Glorbglerp humming) You are the pinnacle of
grace and beauty, now please. You will be released from your servitude once I eat the fifth item as was foretold. Oh yeah, claw for it. Oh my gosh, that is incredible! (Glorbglerp hums) (slurping noises) This is actually really incredible. The gruyere really hits
it with a sharpness. You get all that lobster. This is incredibly fancy. It’s also incredibly delicious. This is the future of Carl’s Jr. This is gonna take the world by storm. This is gonna make people forget about an entire decade’s worth
of trash advertising. (Glerbglorp grunting) Glerbglorp, come back! (Glerbglorp grunting) That rascal. Let’s make this Future
Fast Food a reality. Click the Twitter link

the hashtag, Future Fast Food. It’s like the classiest
thing you could do. Thank you so much for watching and as they say in the future, bye buy this shirt at Seriously, buy it. Please.

  1. Good morning everyone I just got a job working the 1:00 to 9:00 shift at a bar in a casino and to keep me up to date I watch the previous episode when I go to work so I’m always my mythical best

  2. You guys make YouTube worth watching. My family watches your show literally every day. Keep making me laugh guys.
    Thanks from Winnipeg, Canada.

    Ps. Why did Link cut his hair?

  3. Would Carl's Jr. actually put a sandwhich that expensive on their menu? I feel like Carl's Jr would put imitation lobster on their burger but hey maybe they will use real lobster🦀… Would be delish.. 😋
    ** Never mind you just answered my question, (I was commenting as I watched) with the "cross breeding" to save on cost. Hmmmm.. 8.99$ Not a bad price. I like the idea of upgrading for the gift. I see you Carl's. 🦀🍔😋

  4. I was here for it until I learned it’s a lobster mixed with cockroach 🙅‍♀️
    It’s a no from me for this one

  5. I tried lobster for the first time in college and instantly fell in love… We were a love duo, but now there is a lobster burger?!!! I need to go to the States to give that a try!!

  6. I have been going through the hardest time in my life ever…and depression …i have had really bad thoughts lately and #GMM is the only thing keeping me going….thank u guys

  7. Why r u still making these videos without Rhett and link. The normal vids have more views anyways.Talked to my friend he also said he doesn’t watch these .

  8. I like this series, but I definitely like Food Fears more. Bring that back for a regular release! 🙂

  9. i just realized what the next 4 way like battle thign can be. It can be hostess vs little debbie vs (idk) vs (idk) you get me. 4 differnt snack /treat makign companies.

  10. I just recently subbed, found you through slow mo guys, you guys eat a lot of brain. I wanted to say that eating neural tissue is really risky. Sometimes neural tissue contains folded proteins (which is what caused mad cow disease in england). When you consume these folded proteins it forces any shared proteins between us and the tissue to fold causing them to act differently in our brains. I'm sure you can read up on it or there is an episode of Spot of Science on the Rooster Teeth channel that talks about it

  11. I’m sorry but who puts an egg on a lobster.

    No just no. I do not ship this leave lobster on its own with melted butter.

    I would just tear apart that burger separating that all and eat them one bu one egg first then the burger and save the best for last the lobster having melted butter on the side with it.

  12. Better Option: Scramble the Egg and use Ham Stake! Large demographics do not eat sunny side and seafood. fyi runny eggs are nasty AF and seafood not only stinks but ewwwwww!


  14. Heres a fun fact! I am one day older than GMM! I am not joking, I was born on the 25 of July 2006, one day before gmm!

  15. I’m going to miss this show!! AND I’m already missing Food Fears. I would like to see Josh WAY more on GMM. Please? 🙏🏼

  16. Hey just had an idea I recently listened to a ear biscuit I forget which one but Rhett was talking about badlands chugs and you said maybe he could be on the show so maybe you guys could do a will it chug episode

  17. Anyone who is in the Mythical Society discord, please can you tell the lgbt channel: Hello from Venatus. I can’t afford to be back on the server and I wanted to say hello

  18. I don't understand it. Josh seems like a really nice person but I could totally see him hiding a body in his closet…
    Am I the only one?
