“Monique, there’s Frank’s Red Hot sauce on the wall.”
“What? No there isn’t.”
“Yes, there is. It’s all over the wall where you were eating wings last night. Get cleaning.”
When was the last time you felt anxious? Playing Dark Souls, maybe? Being told you need to clean congealed bright orange sauce off a rental apartment wall the day after it was flung there during a feeding frenzy? If you answered yes to either of these questions and found even a little enjoyment from either activity, you may be interested in the challenge MEATliquor and Bandai Namco Entertainment are serving up in April.
From the 4th to the 29th of April, brave UK gamers and chicken enthusiasts alike will be invited to take on the Dark Souls Wings Challenge. Should you choose to take on this throat-scarring, tongue-charring challenge, you will be required to eat twenty wings in the fastest time possible under super extreme pressure. I don’t think I need to tell you how extreme stress connects this poultry-based challenge to the Dark Souls games.
A portion of the twenty wings come smothered in a quarter of a litre of dark chilli sauce which MEATliquor has specially created for this challenge. The chef prepping these dastardly wings is required to wear protective gloves, a mask and goggles to protect from the intensity of the heat. So in a way, I suppose that’s the chef’s version of a classic “Please don’t kill me in one shot” shield. If you wish to take the challenge, you’ll be required to sign a waiver before competing and you too will be required to equip some stylish protective gloves
I daresay these will catch plenty of aggro
If you manage to complete the challenge, you will be rewarded with an exclusive “I SURVIVED the Dark Souls Wings Challenge” T-Shirt and be included in the Hall of Souls leaderboard for each restaurant. The winner with the fastest time from each restaurant will receive a Playstation 4 console with the Dark Souls III Collector’s Edition, while the…Soul survivor with the fastest time in the country will get one of those swanky sold-out Prestige editions I mentioned in another article. This is the edition that comes with the enormous 40cm Lord of Cinder figurine, which will be a perfect accompaniment to your smouldering tongue post-challenge, should you win.
See below a list of all participating MEATliquor restaurants:
- MEATliquor (W1 London)
- MEATliquor (N1 London)
- MEATliquor (Leeds)
- MEATliquor (Brighton)
- MEATliquor (Bristol)
- MEATmission (Hoxton, London)
- MEATmarket (Covent Garden, London)
- CHICKENliquor (Brixton, London)
I love wings. I really do. I wish I was in London right now – hell, I wish I was in London most days. If you’re in London and can hold your own against angry, angry spice demons dancing over your tongue, then go in there and win that Prestige edition on my behalf!
I’m actually not sure which I find more appealing
Focus your mind on the eternal flame and get into MEATliquor while the challenge is on!
PS. For those wondering, I did manage to get most of the hot sauce off the wall. Let’s just say that was the one time I was happy we had yellow walls.
