A Groundbreaking Career

Spurlock might be best remembered for embracing risk-taking, especially as a subject in his documentaries that focused on social problems. His most famous documentary, “Super Size Me,” released in 2004, caused great debate about the fast food’s consequences on one’s health when he ate only McDonalds food in 30 days. This experiment has had a dramatic effect, not only on Burger and all the diseases he has developed from obesity, liver problems and other complications but also to society and the fast-food industry in general.

However, ‘Super Size Me’ was not the end of Spurlock, he went on to make many more documentaries that were equally as engaging and thought provoking. His filmography includes titles like “Where in the World Is Osama bin Laden?” and “The Greatest Movie Ever Sold,” as well as the sequel “Super Size Me 2: “Holy Chicken!”.

Personal Struggles and Legacy

This means that although the professional side of Spurlock’s life may have been successful, he experienced hardships in his personal life like alcoholism. In 2017, as a result of the MeToo movement, Spurlock shared a public apology and stated that he had been involved in sexual misconduct in the past. This confession had a serious effect on his career, forcing him to resign from his production company called Warrior Poets.


He is a legend who left a complicated and postive and negative imprint on the world. He is famous for his courage in making a movie and intimidate personal vulnerability to manifest the story.
