TikToker “closeintel” has gone viral after uploading videos showing microfibers and other microscopic debris in fast-food drinks, leaving fans disgusted.

When it comes to viral content on TikTok, creators can almost always grab viewers’ attention when it comes to fast food restaurants like McDonald’s or Burger King.

Examples of such content include the recent outrage over Little Ceasers’ pizza prices and the McDonald’s employee yelling at a “legitimate” customer.

Well, Closeintel’s videos of him looking at water from fast-foot restaurants under a microscope and the results have left viewers disgusted.

TikToker finds microscopic debris in fast-food drinks

On July 1, the TikToker posted a video of him going to McDonald’s to order a cup of water before going home to look at it under a microscope.

From there, he revealed a random microfiber that he explained could have come from the straw casing, as well as an unidentified black piece of dirt.

Just seven days later, the TikTokers went to Burger King to test their water. This time he allowed the ice in the cup to melt a bit before examining it under the microscope.

“I saw some microfibers,” he revealed, “I also saw this really weird material that looked like it was going to degrade. There was really tiny debris that I saw falling off the footage and when I zoomed in it looked like it was moving somehow. But it could have just been Brownian Motion.”

The creator also looked at Starbucks water and found similar results, leaving viewers disgusted as they labeled the views as “nasty” and gross” in the comments to the video.

However, Closeintel has advised that results will be different in each location, so each result may differ from the last. Viral TikToks show “microfibers” in fast food drinks
