Burger Named for Olympian Shaun White Sells for Almost $1K

South Korean restaurant owner and chef Cha Gwen Sol created and advertised a burger named after Olympian Shaun White, offering to sell it for close to $1,000 USD.

The "Flying Tomato" burger was only really advertised as a gimmick, stating on the menu it is only available to White.

The menu description reads: "The best special thing, This is only for Shaun White, my wish for your gold medal."

However, Cha never expected White to show up at his Pyeongchang restaurant and was shocked when he actually did.

“Is it real? This is Shaun White? It is not a dream? Shaun White tells me it is real. Oh my God, unbelievable.” 

According to a since deleted Instagram video on White's coach, J.J. Thomas' page, White and a few friends dined on the burger for free.

Curious as to what a Shaun White inspired burger has on it?

It has two patties, two slices of cheese and two chicken wings...
