Watch Michelle Obama and Chloe Grace Moretz in "Snackpocalypse" (Credit: Funny or Die)

In a new Funny or Die video, Chloe Grace Moretz stars in ‘Snackpocalypse,’ a (fake) trailer about a “normal healthy girl” who loves carrots in a world obsessed with pizza and chips. In the trailer, Moretz must save her school from its descent into junk food-driven zombie chaos. Only she can do it, because she knows how to shoot a cross-bow into a broken vending machine to fetch an apple while wearing an outfit made 100 percent of dystopian leather.

Ultimately, the video is another plug for Michelle Obama’s healthy eating campaign, and she is featured at the end watching the fake trailer with some girlfriends and snacking on a full-sized carrot (which no one has ever done).

    Sonic's Bacon Double Cheddar Croissant Dog

    Sonic calls this a "gourmet twist" on a classic. I am not so, so fancy, but I know that sprinkling bacon and cheddar cheese onto a tube of pork is not gourmet, even if you have made a bun out of something that is theoretically French.

    This stupid thing is a hotdog in a glazed doughnut bun, topped with bacon and raspberry jelly. It is only available at Delaware's Frawley Stadium, thank god.

    Pizza Hut's Hot Dog Bites Pizza

    Pizza Hut basically just glued pigs-in-blankets to the crust of its normal pizza. This actually sounds good, and I blame America for brainwashing me into feeling that.

    Tokyo Dog's Juuni Ban

    A food truck in Seattle called Tokyo Dog created this thing, which is notable for its distinction as the Guinness Book of World Records' most expensive hot dog at $169. It is a smoked cheese bratwurst, covered in butter Teriyaki grilled onions, Maitake mushrooms, Wagyu beef, foie gras, black truffles, caviar and Japanese mayo in a brioche bun. Just calm down, Tokyo Dog. Calm down.
