  US man eats giant box of popcorn
Updated 05 May 2004, 19.19
A US man is eating a giant box of popcorn
A US man will be brushing his teeth for hours after munching his way through a giant box of popcorn.

He's being dropped into a wooden box the size of a phone box full of popcorn and has eight hours to eat it.

Crazy Legs Conti is a competitive eater, which means he enters competitions to eat loads of a certain type of food in a fixed length of time.

Now someone has made a film about him, and to get people to see his film, Crazy Legs will eat the popcorn.

He'll be munching the popcorn in a cinema in New York where his film is being shown as part of a film festival.

He's also the world oyster eating champ and says he really wants to win a famous Hot Dog contest in July in New York, thought of as the biggest competitive eating contest in the world.

All that eating hasn't made Crazy Legs tubby though, as he runs marathons too.
