Big Mac Sent To Space Lands On Colchester United's Training Ground

Big Mac Sent To Space Lands On Colchester United's Training Ground

Colchester United Football Club had a surprise delivered to their training ground, in the form of a Big Mac attached to a polystyrene box with a GoPro inside. Nope, nothing out of the ordinary here.

As you can probably imagine - the club's media team, along with the secretary, were completely and utterly bamboozled and questioned why the aforementioned burger was attached to the contraption. And more to the point - why it was on their training ground?

Staff at the club had no idea what they were going to do and then - right on cue - the phone rang. This sounds like some creepy film plot.

From there, the story unravelled in spectacular fashion:

Staff at the training ground waited for their mystery guest to arrive and just before 4pm on Wednesday YouTuber, Tom Stanniland - aka Killem - walked through the gates.

He explained that he sent the Big Mac into space with a weather balloon - when that popped, CUFC's training ground was the place it ended up landing.

Enthusiastic Tom said: "I sent a burger into space using a weather balloon, it had gone about 24 miles up - weather balloon popped, it's come back down over 100 miles and landed right here."

Tom - who has 2.7 million subscribers to his channel - added: "We had a tracker in the side front box and we lost connection with it when it got so high, it's crash landed here.

"In the morning, the groundskeeper found the box, turned it upside down, the tracker got a connection again and we found it. We just followed it."

The good people of the Internet clearly loved the story, with one person commenting: "Haha wtf, I've heard of making space for food but not the other way round."

Another added: "Finally! A cheeseburger that really *is* outta this world!"

And of course, Tom did exactly what he should have done after retrieving the snack - he took a bite and headed back to Sheffield.

What a LAD.
