Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest Footage

Some videos of this past summer's Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest have been posted on you tube by 'njcheetah.' The videos include introductions to six time hot dog eating champion Takeru Kobayashi and current champion Joey Chestnut, as well as footage of Chestnut's dramatic victory and the subsequent awarding of his Mustard belt.

It seems like competitive eating is really taking off as a sport these days, thanks in no small part to the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating contest, the sport's World Cup. With fan footage flooding the net, can trading cards and clothing merchandising be far behind?
