    These Americans In Chennai Celebrated Madras Day By Eating Off Banana Leaves With Their Hands

    I'd like to join in too, please. Thanks.

    Today is Chennai's 377th founding day. Thass right. 377 years of this glorious city being around.

    To mark the occasion, the U.S. Consulate General in Chennai released a video of Americans trying out south Indian mess food on banana leaves.

    The video has been shared almost 33,000 times in the last 17 hours.

    Look at dat spread tho.

    The fun part, though, was that they had to eat all of it with their hands.

    They seemed to really enjoy it too.
