'Resident Evil 6' Fans: a London Butcher Is Selling (Fake) Human Meat
The "Artisan Butcher" Even Forms the Meat Into the Shape of Human Body Parts … But There's a Twist
Anyone walking through London's Smithfield Market might be shocked/nauseated to stumble across the pop-up butcher shop called Wesker and Sons, which is selling meat in the form of human torsos, hands, arms and more, ahem, private parts.
But before you get ready to declare that the end of the world is upon us as cannibalism goes mainstream, two things: 1) the "human meat" is fake, or rather, it's real meat, but from animals, not humans, and 2) the shop is a publicity stunt for the new Capcom bioterrorist-themed video game Resident Evil 6.
That doesn't make Wesker and Sons offerings any less completely gross, though, as the meats hanging in the shop look very realistic, from the arm-shaped pile o' meat to the human-like torso of protein and the really, really gross meat corpse, which looks like what we picture the human body to look like sans skin.
There are also some meats shaped into penises, fingers, ears and eyeballs. Because, why not?
The shop is also offering cocktails with names like "Puss" and "Stool Sample," reports TheEscapist.com, and Resident Evil fans can purchase special meat items like "Peppered Human & Lemon Sausages" and "'J'avo Caught Human Thigh Steaks."
Proceeds of all the goods, which are the handiwork of a food artist, will go to the Limbless Association, a U.K. organization that provides information and support to the limb-loss community.
Good works, though we'll skip the hand sandwich, thank you very much.
Resident Evil 6 is being released on Oct. 2.
