I’m sure many people can remember feeling horrified when they watched Morgan Spurlock eat nothing but Mc Donald’s for a month. Either that, or it just made you really crave a Happy Meal.

But the documentary Super Size Me was really hard-hitting when it came out in 2004, even if it was just for the morbid curiosity of watching a man’s inevitable downward spiral unfold in front of our eyes.

Here's a reminder of what it was like:

But Spurlock has fully recovered from his binge, and is now opening an ‘all-natural’ chicken fast food restaurant in Ohio.

Holy Chicken – self-confessed ‘home of grilled, crispy chicken sandwiches’ is offering a free meal to anyone who goes to the opening on Saturday wearing ‘chicken-related attire’.

The chicken served at the 30-day pop-up will be free range and antibiotic-free, according to Spurlock – who admitted in an interview in 2010 that he now never eats fast food...

Spurlock was quoted by WJLA as saying:

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.
