Introducing the 'coronaburger'
A Vietnamese restaurant has created a bun
in the shape of the COVID-19 virus
to spread joy during the outbreak
(SOUNDBITE) (Vietnamese) CREATOR OF CORONABURGER AND SHOP OWNER, HOANG TUNG, SAYING:
"We have this joke that if you are scared of something, eat it, so that's why the coronavirus isn't scary anymore after you ate a burger in the shape of the virus itself. That way of thinking spread joy to others during this pandemic. Besides having a new product to enjoy, people will feel more positive psychologically."
The bun is made using green tea powder
to resemble the color of a virus
Tung hopes the burger will attract customers
and help his suffering business
(SOUNDBITE) (English) WALK-IN CUSTOMER, PAUL MONAHAN, SAYING:
"I think it was interesting but it's light-hearted and different. I think this is the only place doing a coronaburger special, and it was tasty, very good."
