Salt Bae – the chef who’s risen to fame as the star of countless memes on social media – has gone viral yet again thanks to a video of him dancing as he sensually salts a pig.
Hunky Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe has delighted internet users with his now signature move of flamboyantly sprinkling salt on food, which has become the subject of a string of hilarious memes over the past month.
Now he has posted another video of him picking up the slaughtered pig he’s seasoning and dancing with it, and the clip has quickly gone viral and racked up millions of views in just one day.
In the Instagram video, Gökçe shakes his hips and theatrically dances around the gammon joint, slathering it with oil and rubbing it seductively while looking at the camera.
The video racked up four million views in a day and delighted social media users who have become obsessed with the way the chef seasons his food.
One fan, ‘dzhina_babies’, said: ‘Oh boy, this guy has some real moves’ while another, named ‘ruditoledo’ added: ‘Hahahaha, this is one of the best advertisements I have ever seen in my life. This dude knows how to attract his customers.’
据悉，努斯雷特在土耳其经营着一家牛排餐厅，并且在另外两座城市拥有着多家连锁店。自从他在网络上发布了这样的视频后，便拥有了一大批粉丝，并且逐渐引领网络潮流。现在，他的微博已经收到350万名粉丝关注，甚至于美国著名歌手布鲁诺•马尔斯(Bruno Mars)也会模仿他进行表演，奥斯卡奖获得者里奥•迪卡普里奥(Leo DiCaprio)会光临他的餐厅亲身感受这种奇异的撒盐烹饪舞蹈表演。
Gokce, who runs his steakhouse Nusr-Et from Turkey and also owns chains in Istanbul and Abu Dhabi, became an internet sensation at the beginning of January when a video posted to social media showed him preparing a steak meal, ending with his rather bizarre way of sprinkling salt.
After it was picked up on other platforms and went viral, the Turkish chef quickly gained a loyal following – and now has 3.5 million fans watching his every move online.
Celebrities have even jumped on the bandwagon, with US singer Bruno Mars impersonating the 33-year-old chef and Oscar winner Leo DiCaprio attending the restaurant to see the salt sprinkling in person.
Last month, he announced he would be opening restaurants in London and New York after finding fame online.
