Though not from the Tap Into Teen Minds blog directly, Kyle categorized this one and turned it into a formal Three Act Task. This task uses this awesome clip dealing with some of the more popular hotdog eating champions. Yes, that is what I said, hot dog eating.

Check out the the original post at the link below and Kyle's 3 Act treatment at the link above.
