 You're watching all-American marketing1 magic. Nathan's hot dog eating contest is a bonanza2 for the fast food company. As the eaters have expanded their gastric3 capabilities4, the event's popularity has soared and so have sales of Nathan's hot dogs, piling up seven years in a row to 453 million last year.This is one of the greatest marketing stunts6 ever put forth7 in the United States. 

 
It's a natural for Nathan's which first opened at the fun- filled amusement park 96 years ago. In the late 1970s, the contest was just another Coney Island side show, fought off by PR stunt5 man, Max Rosy8. Max's protege is George Shea and his brother, Rich, are the marketing men who have brought competitive eating into the modern era.They've created a phenomenon like introducing coveted9 mustard yellow championship belt, having ESPN cover the event, and promoting the eaters as professional athletes.
 
It's absolutely a sport, and it has all the tenets of sports, and these guys are athletes for sure.
 
This year's stunt, building a new rivalry10 between the U.S. and China, by flying Chinese eaters to Coney Island just when Nathan's happens to be embarking11 on a major expansion in China.
 
If they take the belt, they're going to be eating our lunch literally12.
 
The media eats it up, and not just in Coney Island. The Sheas have qualifying competitions across the country and sponsors for other eating events, chicken wings, oysters13, hamburgers, all part of what they call Major League Eating.
