Here's Why This College Student Covered Her Near-Naked Body In Fast Food


Texas State University student Monika Rostvold covered her body with Chick-Fil-A on Tuesday to raise awareness about college hook-up culture. Wearing napkins that spelled out "All you can eat," she hoped to make a bold statement about the similarities between college dating and fast food.

Rostvold told Cosmopolitan,

Students were invited to eat the food directly off her body as she laid out on a patio table for 20 minutes.

Those engaging in the exhibit were experiencing the temporary satisfaction of Tinder relationships by way of waffle fries. While they might not have realized that in the moment, Rostvold said,

Last April, the 23-year-old went viral for sitting naked on her school library's front steps, an art experiment geared toward starting a conversation about sexual assault on college campuses. In that instance, several fellow female students sat by her to show their support.

Covering her body in fast food, however, drew in more male students. Not a single woman ate the food displayed on her body.

Rostvold said of these peculiar results,

Watch the video above of "All you can eat," and maybe rethink your order next time you're at the drive-thru. As a side note, make sure you're covered with sunscreen, in addition to chicken sandwiches, next time you venture into the sun; melanoma is no joke.
