A hostel in Iceland is currently streaming a McDonald’s meal which turned 10-years-old this week.

Hjortur Smarason, an Iceland resident, bought the cheeseburger and fries 10 years ago.

“I had heard that McDonald’s never decompose so I just wanted to see if it was true or not,” Smarason said.

Ten years later, the burger and fries live in the Snotra House, a hostel in southern Iceland. Curious viewers can watch the livestream of the burger and fries, which still appear to be recently purchased.

“The old guy is still there, feeling quite well,” said Siggi Sigurdur, the hostel’s owner. It still looks quite good actually.”

The live stream draws around 400,000 daily hits, and the hostel says it has visitors from all over the world come to marvel at the 10-year-old meal.
