Woman dips chicken in Coke at US Open, blowing up the internet

An unsuspecting tennis fan was caught on camera dipping chicken into her ice-cold soft drink and social media lost its collective mind.

Alexa Greenfield, 26, was at the US Open match with her sister and nephews, and the group was enjoying lunch, when she was captured on video practicing her strange dunking concoction. That footage went up on ESPN's Twitter site, and boom, Greenfield is famous.

She's a bit perplexed by all the attention. She knows it's weird. But she never thought it was THAT weird.

Her dad taught her to do it, she explained, as a way to cool off the chicken. She liked the taste of Coke mixed with chicken and just kept doing it.

"It sounds gross, I totally get it," she admitted.

Greenfield said she was messing around with her nephews, when she did the chicken dunk. She told them she was about to do something really weird and that the boys had to keep her "secret."

She didn't know there was a camera guy near her, taping the whole thing.

"I got caught," she said.

A text from a friend alerted her to the viral-bound video. "In my head, I just went, 'S***!" she said.

One of the most frequent questions she's gotten in her new online fame is whether she drinks the Coke she uses as a dip.

She feigns disgust. "It gets greasy." she says. "I guess I have a line."
