“Much of the world is in pain,” Alexander Tominsky said. So, the guy ate 40 rotisserie chickens in 40 consecutive days — something that brings him pain to make others smile.
This article explores the life of this Chicken Man.
Meet Alexander Tominsky, The Philadelphia Chicken Man
In September 2022, Alexander Tominsky started documenting his journey of ingesting 30 rotisserie chickens in 30 days and extended it to 40 chickens in 40 days after passing his original goal. However, this Philadelphia Chicken Man didn’t gain public attention until the 39th day when he invited the city to be part of the grand finale.
His invitation read, “Come watch me eat an entire rotisserie chicken. November 6th will be the 40th consecutive day that I have eaten an entire rotisserie chicken. 12 o’clock noon. The chicken will be consumed on the abandoned pier near Walmart. This is not a party.”
Surprisingly, the photo of the flyer strapped to a pole saw nearly 10,000 retweets, and hundreds of people came out to support him. Even the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation tweeted in hopes that “the chicken is delicious.”
After finishing his final meal, Alexander shared he did it to make others smile. “Sounds weird. But I just felt like I was doing this for a very important reason,” he added.
Sadly, he also revealed that he wouldn’t ever do it again. His stomach still hurts! “My body is in the process of repairing and I don’t think it’ll be back to normal in quite a while. It’s awful, I get terrible cramps. My stomach is bloated and throbs. Sometimes I don’t notice it if I’m like walking around, but as soon as I’m still or sitting down, it throbs to the beat of my heart. I think it’s from the sodium,” Alexander explained.
Infact, the Chicken Man was considering getting some blood, just to be sure.
