Takeru Kobayashi breaks hot dog eating record

To put Kobayashi’s performance in perspective, there is no way to put Kobayashi’s performance in perspective. No context exists, no frame of reference, to explain the sheer magnitude of Kobayashi’s achievement.
But I’ll try: Remember when America landed a man on the moon on July 20, 1969? Well, Kobayashi’s 50 hot dogs and buns is the equivalent of the Japanese landing 100 men, an IMAX film crew and a huge catering truck on Pluto… on July 21, 1969.
