8. Westerhof told BuzzFeed News that the ham, called Coburger ham and purchased at Albert Heijn supermarket, was part of his company’s daily lunch that day.
“I was looking at the ham, and it was really difficult on the eyes,” Westerhof said. “My eyes tried to focus, but since it only looked like it’s out of focus, this didn’t work.”
He said after he and his co-workers had a laugh about it, his colleague Tim took a photo and Westerhof posted it to Reddit.
9. Westerhof then uploaded a video onto YouTube to “prove that it wasn’t photoshopped, and because a video would be even more ridiculous.”
11. “My colleagues Daan and Sev ended up eating the ham, even though I told them this ham went viral. Savages!” Westerhof said.
