Kobayashi, who holds several world records for quickly eating large quantities of food, might have thought that a hungry hamster would be no match against him. He was wrong.
Of course, to make it a fair competition, the more diminutive contestant was provided with hot dogs more fitting of his smaller frame. But as YouTube channel HelloDenizen notes, they weren't really hot dogs at all:
"They were made out of grapes, dates, or carrots. The hamster ate whatever seemed to taste best to him!"
