This blog is dedicated to spreading the truth about Jack Scalfani, a child abuser and racist who has run up modest celebrity on the internet through his “Cooking with Jack” youtube channel. For a long but by no means exhaustive list of what Jack has done, please see this post.

Here we have a small Winton-esque vignette of the Scalfani family out and engaged in their primary source of meals. Recently we discussed both Jack Junior’s long-simmered resentment of his father, as well as Jack’s attempt to chase a somewhat current youtube trend. Jack Junior is in a much better mood here, presumably because his mother is around, despite his typical teenage moodiness. Can you really blame poor Jack Junior, though? He’s had so much of his life filmed and put up on the internet involuntarily, and he’s at an age where he is particularly self-conscious about how the world perceives him. Now all he wants is a fucking burger and for his trouble he has a camera shoved in his face.
I don’t particularly care for fast food (I’m not particularly against it either), so it’s clear this video isn’t particularly for me. With that said at least there’s the a recognisable audience for this, which is more than I can say for a lot of Jack’s work. It’s conceivable that someone might be interested in a new fast food product, clear publicity stunt that it is. But, and this is the important thing, it’s not even his idea. I’ve mentioned over and over again that Jack is merely copying what others have done, what’s seen to be popular. He can only copy, never create.
