March 10 (UPI) -- A California stuntman spent 24 hours sitting in a pool of bean dip to promote a Los Angeles-area restaurant that has suffered losses from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hunter Ray Barker said he climbed into the wading pool filled with bean dip outside Los Toros Mexican Restaurant in Chatsworth at 3 p.m. Monday because he wanted to support the restaurant, which he described as one of his favorites for years.


Baker's 24-hour tenure in the pool coincided with a block party at the eatery, which featured the stuntman receiving a tattoo of the restaurant's logo while sitting in the dip.

"Obviously, a stunt like this is ridiculous -- it's absurd, it's wild, but as with any stunt, I'm always in favor of something that edges on the side of absurdity if it can celebrate and at least make a couple of people laugh," Barker told Patch before climbing into the bean dip.

"If we can get more attention and turn a few more people into lifelong customers, that's what I love about it, too."
