While many of us think a birthday is nothing without a cake, the same can't be said for Tshepo Kgosi. The 31-year-old from Mamelodi in Johannesburg wanted nothing less than the biggest hamburger in South Africa to mark his birthday celebration.

"I thought cakes were overrated. I wanted to do something big, something special,' said Tshepo to The Daily Sun newspaper.

The 75cm long, 35cm wide, and 30cm tall burger was made from 6kg of minced meat, a big bun, onions, tomato, and a sauce.

He says the idea came from Oppistasie Restaurant in Cullinan where a picture of a huge burger is displayed.

In his interview with The Daily Sun, Tshepo said, "I spoke to the owner of the restaurant, who said the burger was made a long time ago. I asked them how often they made it and they said it has not been done in more than two decades."

Tshepo celebrated his birthday on February 10th and shared the burger with thirty-one of his friends.
