'Super Size Me' Director Morgan Spurlock Opens Fast-Food Restaurant

Some 12 years after he fried up the fast-food industry with his breakthrough film Super Size Me, mustachioed movie man Morgan Spurlock is getting into the industry with a fast-food restaurant of his own.

Yes, you read that right — the guy who made us all feel like shit for enjoying the occasional McDonald's in 2004 will soon be serving up grease bombs of his own.

According to ABC, Spurlock is launching a pop-up fried chicken joint called Holy Chicken in a vacant Wendy's lot in Westerville, OH.

It's not an entirely hypocritical move — Spurlock says that the fried chicken sandwiches will be "healthy-ish," adding, "We have stuff that is humanely raised.... Our chickens, I raised them myself. They are antibiotic free, hormone-free, all the buzz words, we got them all."

The goal is for Holy Chicken to eventually become a full-time restaurant. But you still shouldn't eat it three times a day.

ABC reached out to Jenny Lobb, an Ohio State University nutritionist, who said, "I don't think your biometrics, your cholesterol, your blood pressure, would improve if you were eating that three meals a day."
