FOOD FIGHT: The History of War Told Through Food

FOOD FIGHT: The History of War Told Through Food

This “Food Fight” animation by Stefan Nadelman is genius!!!!!

From the film’s website: “Food Fight is an abridged history of war, from World War II to present day, told through the foods of the countries in conflict. Watch as traditional comestibles slug it out for world domination in this chronologically re-enacted smorgasbord of aggression.”

Matching up foods with countries is half the fun in watching but if you so choose, here’s the cheat sheet. For example, the soft pretzels and bratwurst represent Germany, the matzah takes on Israel and the fish ‘n’ chips represent England. Kebabs, Kim chi, beef stroganoff, dumplings and egg rolls all make guest appearances.

My personal favorite is when the sushi go kamikaze on the burgers. It’s perfect. Watch it below! Thanks, Kenny.

    So, when those two large stack of cheeseburgers fall down, I’m guessing that’s supposed to be the towers? That was really good.

    Hamburgers are really German, you know from Hamburg, Germany. And Hot Dogs or Frankfurters are also, yes you guessed it, from Frankfurt, where else, Germany.

    I think Fried Chicken would have been more American. Oh, well, real war is more complicated.

  • elizabeth

    this is really brilliant. I loved the left over gravy the kabobs were hanging out in. And the sneaky beef in the storganoff hiding inside the Kimchi….

  • Halli

    Ew, I think I’m officially a vegetarian.

  • gosh

    such a jewish american take on europen history. america wasn’t always victorious and israel was not innocently attacked… absolute rubbish

  • thebzzz

    The croissant are not french, this is nonsense. The croissant is a viennoiserie as in Vienna, Austria. The croissant represent the victory of the austrians against the turkish people after a veyr long besiegment. of Vienna. The turkish were stopped from going any further in Europe. And some baker in Vienna made up the croissant, a pastry shpaed like the symbol of the muslims.

    If you want something french at least take something really french like a french cheese like the camembert.

    thank god i went to school, otherwise i would have thought England fell to the Germans and had to be saved by the Yanks. “thanks America!!”

  • Bryan

    There is some cleverness there (the arms race, for instance), but mixed metaphors and a skewed view of history kinda ruin it for me. Also, I find its glorification of violence rather, um, tasteless.

  • Clair is an idiot

    The “Yanks” saved your arses by providing you with food so you could continually get pummelled by the Germans. You did a great job of fighting the Germans, if by fighting you mean, cowering in bunkers and getting bombed to ever loving hell while your fat-communist war starter gave longwinded speeches. England dragged the Yanks into the war, and without the Yanks, England would be sprickin ze deutche fooooooooooooo shooooooooo. Fool.
