Video Showing How McDonald's Makes the McRib Divides Opinion: 'Unappetizing'

A TikTok video purporting to show how McDonald's makes a McRib has divided people online.

The clip shared by a user called Isaiah, known online as Zaezae1098, who says they work at the fast food chain, claims to show the method for making the sandwich.

The video, which has been viewed more than 9.9 million views and liked more than 800,000 times, since it was posted on October 29.

It begins by showing the man put on plastic gloves then grill the "boneless pork meat," which is used for the 520 calorie meal.

The pale pink meat is then dipped in barbecue sauce once it is cooked.

Viewers see the bread bun being toasted, then handfuls of onions and pickles added to the sandwich before it is filled with the meat.

Text overlaying the footage, which can be watched here, reads: "How McDonald's food works. McRib."

One its website, McDonald's describes the meal as "BBQ pork sandwich perfection."

The restaurant firm also list the ingredients as "seasoned boneless pork dipped in tangy BBQ sauce, topped with slivered onions, crunchy dill pickle chips and served on a toasted homestyle bun."

The McRib, is sold in more than 10,000 restaurants across the States.

In response, many commented on how the sandwich is assembled.

TikTok user, Leonore, wrote: "Does anyone else feel like this made the already unappetizing McRib seem less appetizing?"

Another user, Pluto/Aspen, joked: "That's not a McRob that's a McCrime."

Dylan White added: "You're using the word "food" very loosely."

Ytoast typed: "Just put the buns together so it doesn't look like it's been in a car wreck when I open it."

Sarah Haynes added: "I have never had a McRib in my life. After watching this video I am thanking my lucky stars."

However others did not find the video unappealing, including user Mr Williams who wrote: "If you think this is going to make me want to eat McDonald's less then you are mistaken."

Saxsquatch agreed, typing: "I thought it made it look good tbh [to be honest]."

Knight20004 commented: "I don't care how it's made, it is good," alongside a toungue-out emoji.

DeathsMechanicX opined: "I was really hoping this video would turn me off of the McRib, but it didn't work."

Earlier this month, McDonald's announced that it was creating its first-ever non-fungible token in honor of the McRib's 40th anniversary.
