New York artist Sally Davies bought a Happy Meal from McDonald's in April and took photographs of it periodically over the past six months — just to see how much it changed over time. Problem is, it didn't change much. Sure, the burger shrank some, and the fries look a little shriveled, but no mold, no sign of decay. McDonald's issued a statement saying they couldn't respond to the project because they were unsure what condition the burger and fries were kept in; we suppose they're alluding to the possibility that they were frozen? Or stored in the vacuum that is outer space? Watch the video below and decide for yourself.
