Most humans have accepted that fast food burgers will never look as good in real life as they do in commercials and advertisements.

MediocreFilms went to McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's and Jack in the Box and asked them to make a burger that looked like their advertisements. Surprisingly, they all did a pretty good job. It wasn't always a perfect recreation, but it was certainly better than the disappointing flaccid reality of the first go around. With some tender love and care, even a fast food burger can look yummy in real life.
