NBC and Dick Wolf are cashing in on the Internet’s love of erupting produce.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday shared an “exclusive” clip from Chicago Melon, the umpteenth offshoot of Chicago Fire inspired by BuzzFeed‘s recent experiment to see how many rubber bands would have to be wrapped around a watermelon to get it to explode. (Apparently it was a slow work day.)
While the clip above is clearly a parody, there’s no telling what network executives are thinking up right now. After all, more than 800,000 people watched as two reporters in hazmat suits ruined a perfectly good piece of fruit. [Insert shrug emoji here.]
