VICE Jumps on Foodie Bandwagon, Launches MUNCHIES Mini-Docs
VICE Media and its online video network, VBS.tv, have introduced a series of mini-documentaries about chefs and other food personalities called MUNCHIES. In proper hipster form, its first webisode stars F-bomb-dropping David Chang, his equally potty-mouthed Momofuku cookbook co-author, Peter Meehan, and scantily-clad assistant, Sue Chan. Predictably, the three go to Koreatown, eat fried chicken, and get drunk. At 12 minutes-plus, it's admittedly difficult not to stay tuned, as Chang get slurrier and Jose Andres drops by for dinner. And the Changian vortex sucks on.
