Warren Buffett may have a net-worth of $73 billion according to Forbes, but that doesn't mean he can't enjoy the simple pleasure of a fast-food breakfast. In the latest trailer for the HBO documentary Becoming Warren Buffett, the business magnate opts for the $2.95 sausage muffin with egg and cheese because the stock market's down (as opposed to the high falutin bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit, which goes for $3.17).

The film promises an inside look at Buffett's day-to-day life, coupled with a deep dive into his history and how built Berkshire Hathaway.

It will also focus on Buffett's mission to give his fortune away, including the gift that even Bill Gates calls, "amazing."

"I thought I would pile our money, then she would unpile it running a foundation, and therefore society would benefit. Ninety-nine percent of everything I make will go to others," Buffett says of his first wife, Susie, in the clip."Investment problems, they're easy. It's the human problems that are the tough ones."

Watch the trailer below; Becoming Warren Buffett premieres Monday, January 30 at 10 p.m. on HBO.
