Via Mashable, titled ‘Eat, Fry, Love,’ a pretty cool look at the dangers of deep frying a turkey.
In 2011, William Shatner starred in a public service announcement created by State Farm Insurance to raise awareness of the dangers of deep frying turkey. In this year’s version, State Farm commissioned John Boswell to remix the video with Shatner singing in an autotuned melody “deep-fried turkey, I want a moister, tastier turkey…”
All kidding aside, deep frying a turkey can be incredibly dangerous. It should be done outside, away from the house and the bird itself should be completely thawed. Frying a partially frozen turkey (or overfilling the pot with oil) can cause a grease fire.
