TV Host Receives Hamburger Earmuffs From Amazon Instead Of T-Shirt, Entire Internet Is Better For It

It's a Christmas miracle!

When life gives you hamburger earmuffs instead of the t-shirt you ordered off of Amazon, clearly you are supposed to wear them everywhere, right? That’s what Syfy’s Josh Gates did this weekend when he ordered a shirt from his own show, Destination Truth, and got a pair of hamburger earmuffs instead. No, really.

Here’s how it all started:

Wait a minute, Josh Gates is the host of Destination Truth. You’re telling us he can’t get free t-shirts?

Not that he’s complaining now, of course, because he just scored a bargain.

And then, as anyone would do, he went nuts with it.

As the final kicker, he even left a review of the product n Amazon. It’s currently the only review on the page:


If you can’t read the image above, here’s what he wrote:

This is my first ever customer review of a product from Amazon. On December 6th, I ordered an XL Destination Truth t-shirt. Today, a box arrived with a set of these Hamburger Earmuffs, or as they’re officially called, “Adult Cheeseburger Hamburger Earmuffs Ear Muffs.” When I opened the box, I was confused. My first thought was, “this does not look like an XL Destination Truth t-shirt.” I’m pretty astute after all. My second thought was, “did someone just ship me two delicious cheeseburgers?” But I quickly realized that these were no ordinary burgers. Trembling, I lifted the twin sirloins to my head. The soft fur of the faux-brioche bun gently cradled my ears, and the layers of genuine felt cheese and lettuce all but muted the sounds of the office copying machine. Proprietary Hamburger Earmuff technology blocked out a wide range of frequencies, and I was immediately transported into a quiescent world of zen-like contemplation. Closing my eyes, I feel deep into thought, deconstructing some of the universe’s most mind-bending mysteries such as…ketchup. When I opened my eyes, nearly 9 hours had passed. It was night, and I was alone in the otherwise empty office. But more importantly, I was WARM. The heat from the Hamburger Earmuffs radiated through me like warm, mustard-flavored sunshine. Thanks, Amazon. You may not have shipped me my t-shirt, but you did deliver a holiday miracle.

Unfortunately, if you would like to recreate Josh’s adventures for yourself, you cannot. At least, not until Amazon gets more of them.
