I was asked to perform a version of "Andy Warhol Eats a Hamburger".

Filmmaker by Jorgen Leth made a film called 66 scenes from America.  One of those scenes was of Andy Warhol eating a burger.  At the end of the video, the caption
reads "Burger, New York".  From what I gather, Warhol agreed to be part of the film because he believed everyone who eats fast food is enjoying the same thing.  It doesn't matter whether you're a Hollywood actor, a homeless person, or a middle school kid, a burger from McDonald's or Burger King is exactly the same for each person.

After considering several ideas, I knew I had to include two things to personalize the performance.  Those two things were parenting and tacos.
