Good news for those who enjoy binge-eating during holidays. A KFC branch in Osaka, Japan, is going to offer an all-you-can-eat buffet!

But it’s not just some ordinary buffet. The Osaka buffet, which is scheduled to open on November 19, is a unique idea that KFC came up with that has its own particular set of rules and pricing.

Customers are going to pay 1,880–2,480 Japanese yen (roughly $16–$21) to eat. The price range changes depending on the time and day. Weekday afternoons will have the cheapest price, while weekend evenings get the highest possible price.

Now here comes the twist: if you want to avail of the offer, you will only be given 90 minutes to munch on the KFC treats. The reason for the timer is to give the whole experience an exciting feel to it, like you’re on a shopping spree.

You can choose from their variety of over 60 menu choices. That’s a lot of items you got there. This fast-food campaign will certainly end well—or bloated.

A little warning, though: it may not be far before Instagram is stuffed, literally, with cringe-worthy food pics, so get ready.
