A few weeks ago we told you about Buzzfeed's video illustrating what 2,000 calories looks like in everything from bagels to bacon. They've followed it with a video showing what five American dollars will buy you in various foods around the world. Key takeaways: Coffee is at a premium in Italy, you can get enough bananas to feed a barrel of monkeys in Ethiopia (only like six in Australia, though), and the U.S. has the second-cheapest ground beef next to the U.K. Anyway, give it a watch after the jump, it's pretty mesmerizing stuff.
