Kobayashi INHALES 69 Hot Dogs -- The VIDEO!

7/5/2011 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Takeru Kobayashi DESTROYED 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes yesterday ... smashing his own world record in an UNOFFICIAL speed eating display ... and igniting a HUGE controversy in the process!070511_kobiyashi_v3_still



TMZ obtained footage of Kobayashi's UNBELIEVABLE feat ... which he accomplished on a Manhattan rooftop ... miles from the OFFICIAL Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Championship at Coney Island. TK wasn't allowed to compete at the Coney Island eat-off because he wouldn't sign a contract with Major League Eating.

So, in protest ... Kobayashi did his own thing. Of course, Joey Chestnut won the Nathan's title with 62 dogs ... but Kobayashi put down 69!!!!!!

Chestnut later remarked, "It wasn't a competition ... It was no different than what I do at practice on my own and I'm able to break a record at my house."


So, we gotta ask ...

That's nothing. Perez Hilton has the record for inhaling the most wieners in 10 minutes.

Chestnut commented in another article that Kobayashi's victory wasn't real because he wasn't officially a part of the MLE-sanctioned event. Please, that's just ego talking. Face it, Chestnut: you only ate 61 hotdogs. Kobayashi ate 69 hot dogs. He ate more than you.

Who won the Nathan contest? You did. But who not only won "eat the most hot dogs" but set a record? Kobayashi did.

Actually they're both losers since they'll both die of some terrible ailment after eating all those hotdogs. Gross.

freaking corporations want to own EVERYTHING. That's what's really disgusting about this story. Models eat like this all the time, and throw it up later. You just don't get to see video of it.

Lasted until 2:44 of video before I got to grossed out to watch anymore. This is entertainment? Watching some guy cram soggy crap into his face? Just disgusting.

Unless he was eating the exact same dogs and buns as the official contestants, this stunt doesn't mean bull-dooky!
