I love Deadly Premonition. There’s no logical reason for me to. Objectively, it’s not good. Its gameplay is primarily stolen from the far more successful Resident Evil 4, and the story starts out looking like it’s going to basically rip off Twin Peaks. Then, over the course of my playing, something crazy happened. All these disparate elements that would be poor by themselves combined into a charming masterpiece. The characters ended up being unforgettable, the plot twisted so ludicrously it took on a life of its own, and the soundtrack is legendary by now for how inappropriate it is.
But this isn’t a review of Deadly Premonition. This is a photoblog, drawing inspiration from one of its more infamous scenes. I am referring to the scene where the eccentric millionaire, Mr Stewart, orders the Sinners’ Sandwich at the diner in town. If you haven’t played the game, you can watch the scene here.
Obviously, I’d need the right ingredients for this task. But, being a student, I also needed to work on a budget. I ended up with:
- Kingsmill medium white sliced bread
- I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter
- Asda Smart Price strawberry jam
- Asda sliced turkey
- Sugar Puffs
With my ingredients assembled on the worktop, it was time to construct this unholy sandwich. With mounting dread, I buttered both slices before applying a healthy amount of jam and 54 (at a quick count, though I may be wrong) Sugar Puffs to one slice.
The half-way mark
Now for the meat. I didn’t want the jam to be overpowering, so I used a decent amount of turkey. Six slices in total I believe.
Truly, it resembles [joke redacted]
Then, all that was left was to eat it. So, how did it taste? I won’t lie, it was pretty damn good. Decent balance between the jam and turkey flavours. Together, they managed to totally overpower the Sugar Puffs, but they created a satisfying crunchy texture the sandwich would have otherwise lacked. All in all, this was a successful experiment. So says Mr Stewart.
Capping things off with the sandwich, in all its disturbingly tasty glory
