Watch Werner Herzog Narrate the Savage Lava Death of Chef Boyardee

“The sun dimmeth, the land sinketh, gusheth forth steam and gutting fire.”

Quoting Norse poetry, celebrated documentarian Werner Herzog uses these words to describe our planet’s ancient forces in his recent film Into the Inferno. These same lines, it turns out, serve as a fitting eulogy for an unfortunate can of Chef Boyardee.

By combining Herzog’s narration with photographer Bryan Lowry’s footage of lava and budget-priced ravioli, one Facebook user managed to capture the essence of the terrible power hidden below. Beneath us lies a world where rock churns like marinara, waiting to burst out in terrible noodles and lay waste to the trivial creations of man.

Buon appetito!
