If you thought Lady Gaga’s version was gimmicky, wait until you get a load of this!
Oh, the meat dress. No one can forget the uproar that followed the debut of the raw beef dress worn by Lady Gaga at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Animal rights activists cried foul while the fashion forward hailed it as unprecedented and gutsy. Regardless as to which side you might have sympathized with, if any, there’s no doubt you had an opinion.
Now, a hotpot restaurant in Beijing has taken it to another level. Not only can you feast your eyes upon a version of the infamous dress, you can actually feast on the dress.

The idea is that you’ll peel the layers of meat off of the doll to put into the hotpot. As you do, the doll’s body will become more and more exposed with each slice removed. While the majority of responses to Elyse Ribbons’ photo have been positive, a post on The Shanghaiist reported that readers of the popular Chinese blog site Weibo were less than impressed with the style of presentation with which their dinner was served, citing concerns ranging from hygiene to sexism.
