8 Hilarious Drive-Thru Pranks Caught On Camera

The hours that a clerk at a fast food drive-thru puts in can get pretty monotonous at times. Serving customer after customer for eight hour shifts can play tricks with your mind. Sometimes, it’s a breath of fresh air when a wacky customer comes to the drive-thru.

In the last few years, the Internet has become lush with drive-thru related pranks. Some were astounding in creativity while others simply focused on the execution. Despite the differences, we still got some pretty good escapades at a variety of fast food joints.

We leapt into the rabbit hole called YouTube and found some of the best fast food drive-thru pranks on the Internet. Check them out!


Person Swap

Dealing with so many customers throughout the day, orders tend to blend together at times. This prank swaps the guy from BigDawsTv with a blonde model, confusing some unsuspecting fast food employees. In the caper, he’ll ask for a large cup or water, or another menu item when he receives his food and when they turn away, the swap occurs.

Little Kid Driver

Would you believe a kid if he told you he had a disease that made him look like a juvenile? That’s what happens in this drive-thru prank where Denis Denisyuk talks an 11-year-old boy into masquerading as an 18-year-old. Some of the cashiers are apprehensive, while others see right through the ruse.

Robot

You never forget meeting your first robot. Through the practical application of a fake carseat costume and a robot extension attached to it, the prankster tricks unsuspecting drive-thru employees into believing that a mechanical man has the fast food munchies. As he pulls up to the window, most of the workers run off in fear. As they should when it comes to strange machines.

Escaped Prisoner

What would you do if a guy in handcuffs and an orange jumpsuit drove up to your window and ordered food? In this classic Tom Mabe prank, fast food employees were shocked to find what appeared to be an escaped prisoner visiting their fast food spot. Some went about their business, while others seemed to stall while they alerted the authorities. How would you handle this situation?

The Invisible Customer

Working in fast food can get really spooky late at night. Imagine getting a graveyard shift, and a car rolls ups with no one driving. MagicofRahat created a costume that looks like an empty drivers seat, allowing him to drive up to the windows while maintaining the illusion that no one was there. Needless to say, some employees were pretty shocked.

The Puppy Swap

With all these shitty pranks featured, here’s one that probably made a food server’s day. In another BigDawsTV swap video, the driver this time switches places with an adorable puppy rather than another person. The employees instantly figure this is a prank. At least they get to play with the pup a bit. Hopefully they wash their hands after, though.

Fart Spray

Probably one of the more juvenile pranks we’ve seen, the crew from Jay Karl’s Pranks got a bottle of “Liquid Ass” and sprayed it onto their orders after it was handed to them. They would then give it back to the restaurant claiming something was wrong.

Static Shock fainting

We saved the most messed up for last. In this prank, the MagicofRahat feigns getting static shock from a transaction and immediately collapses onto the steering wheel as the car drives off. The employees are noticeably horrified and concerned over his well-being. Obviously he’s fine, but this experience can’t be good for anyone with high blood pressure.

14 Food Delivery Tales That Are Weird, Terrifying, And Downright Disgusting

Once a former pizza deliver boy, I know there can be some pretty weird experiences while dropping off food to customers late into the night.

A recent question was posted on Reddit, asking food delivery people what were some of the weirdest deliveries they’ve ever had to make. Some of these tales are odd, others hilarious, and some are downright terrifying.

You can check out the highlights from the thread below. As with everything else found on Reddit, be sure to take these stories with a grain of salt.

Enjoy, and make sure to tip your food deliverers appropriately!


“Willis is in the dog food again!”

Pulled up to this easily $1.5-2 million house. Lady opens the door and as she’s signing the receipt I hear, “Bethany! Willis is in the dog food again!” This is deep in Louisiana, so this is all in a typical Southern drawl. I look behind her and see a man chasing a full grown pot-belly pig wearing an LSU jersey away from what I assume is the dog food area.

Willis returned to the area shortly after.


Amish family dinner

Delivered 30 pizzas to an Amish family. About a 35 minute drive. The entire family met me outside to grab a pizza. I took the rest in and followed them inside to their dining table. The elder of the family gestured to me to sit down with them and he pointed to the one open seat. I realized that they saved me a seat to eat with them.

I didn’t know too much about the Amish back then, and I wasn’t sure how rude it would be to say that in working and couldn’t/shouldn’t. I was also thinking on the other hand they could have killed me (remember I wasn’t an educated 16 year old). So I sat down and ate two slices of pepperoni pizza with them. I found the girl across the table to be very attractive. They said a prayer of some sort and didn’t talk much after that. Just asked my name and how thankful they were for me to drive all that way. I finally had to get back to work. They didn’t tip, which was fine.

I enjoyed the time with them.


Undies

Mid to late 50-year-old man comes to the door in an opened towel robe wearing Spider-Man undies.

I was a Chinese food delivery girl back in high school.

This gentleman opened the door very casually and honestly, I didn’t think much of his undies.

What was really funny was from the other room I hear what I assumed to be his wife call out, “Is that Chinese or Pizza? Did I win?!”

The man saw the white plastic bag and sighed. “You won!”

As he was closing the door after giving a generous tip all I could hear was a celebratory woooh from the woman.


The baddest of the bunch

I once delivered pizza to what seemed like a gang house. I pulled up and there are all these intimidating dudes with tattoos and bandanas all wearing the same colored clothes. I puckered up and felt my scrotum shrivel as I awkwardly shuffled past them with a bunch of pizzas to ring the doorbell.

They were all staring me down and it felt like the longest walk ever.

The person who ordered the pizza must have been the head honcho because he looked like the baddest of the bunch. The total was like $70 and he gave me a $100 bill and told me to keep the change.

I bolted out of there and returned back to the pizza place on autopilot because I was so scared.


Not one to ruin a good time…

I delivered pizza to a house, the instructions said to open the gate and go into the backyard and knock on the back door. Now, I was really early. I showed up at their door probably about 12-15 minutes after they had placed the order as we were very slow. As I entered the backyard, I heard really loud moaning coming from the open window and realized the customers were having sex.

I’m not the one to ruin a good time, so I decided to wait until they finished before I knocked on the door. I just stood there in their backyard with a pizza in my hand for a good 10 minutes. One of their neighbors heard what was going on and saw me in there and decided to pop outside and just stand there staring at me the whole time making sure that I’m not stealing anything.

Anyway, most awkward 10 minutes of my life.


The splash zone

A man answered the door in a robe. The robe was closed, but I guess he wasn’t wearing underwear, because as we’re exchanging money, a stream of piss starts to fall between his legs and right onto his own carpet. He doesn’t seem to notice, or just doesn’t care.

I take a big step back out of the splash zone, and he just keeps making small talk while it’s happening.


This is a robbery

I know of a kid who was a drug addict that had pizza delivered to his house. Once he heard the doorbell, he walked out his back door with a ski mask on and robbed the delivery driver in front of his own home. After that, he walked back around the home and opened the front door from inside pretending to be surprised that the guy was robbed.

Idiot ended up getting arrested but it was the worst plan ever hatched by someone I knew.


“Coming!”

I was delivering a pizza and after I knocked on the door I heard a far away voice yell “Coming!” so I waited. After about a minute I hear the same voice a little closer yell “Almost there just wait!”

This continues for several minutes, with the voice coming closer and closer until the person finally reaches the door and opens it. I’m expecting to see someone at eye level, however instead I’m greeted by a smiling person on the floor who had no legs and dragged themselves across the house to answer the door.

I offered to put the pizza inside for them in the kitchen and they were pretty appreciative


Full of weird shit

So I delivered like five pizzas to this guy once. I had to ring the doorbell several times before he came to the door. When he got there he didn’t really say anything except to come on in real quick.

Now you aren’t supposed to go in people’s houses but I decided who cares I can defend myself. I get inside this guy’s huge house and i’ts full of weird shit. There was a full suit of armor right by the door, and somewhere he had this Halloween CD playing creepy, deep voiced laughs.

While he’s searching for his wallet the biggest dog I’ve ever seen walks up to me and falls at my feet pushing me over. So I’m sitting next to a suit of armor petting this huge-ass dog waiting for this middle-aged man to pay me.

He gave me a $40 tip.


“Let him keep the rest!”

I delivered pizzas for a few years in college.

One of my deliveries to a hotel had a guy answer the door in nothing but boxers and a beanie. We trade money for pizza and as I give him his change, I hear another guy yell, unseen, from behind the corner, “If he’s cute, let him keep the rest!” The guy at the door hands me back the change and smiles.

I wasn’t sure how to react, so I just turned and left.

Completely naked

I was a delivery boy for an Asian restaurant for a while. Had a delivery down a sketchy, very bumpy road in the back of my small town near all these trailers. When they answered the door, there was a 50-60 year old lady standing completely naked in front of me, as well as two men of the same age sitting on the couch with their dongs out, again, completely naked.

I obviously got out of there as fast as possible. I took her signature and nearly ran away. She yelled at me through the window “Come inside with us!” And I said “Fuck no!” as I was walking away, and she proceeded to curse at me as I jogged back to my car.


Imaginary money

The guy who answered the door looked like he had just seen a ghost and was a little jittery so I’m pretty sure he was on some kind of drugs.

Anyways, he hands me $10 for a $15 bill and tries to go back inside really quick. I realize that he didn’t hand me enough money so I knock on the door and tell the guy he still owed me like $5 dollars so he starts patting his pockets and finally pulls his hand out to as if to give me more money but has nothing in his hand.

He extended his hand to give me this imaginary money and was visually surprised when I wasn’t fooled by his trickery.

The guy does this two or three more times before having me call my manager to attempt to use his card to pay even though I’m sure he knew it wouldn’t work. At this point, he goes back inside because he “just heard his roommate come in” and is going to “borrow money from him.”

So I wait, and I wait until I knock again. The guy cracks the door, sees it’s me, and closes the door again really quick like he was surprised I didn’t go away. Eventually after about 10 minutes of annoyance and feeling like I might get stabbed I told the guy I either needed money or the food, which he reluctantly gave back.

All in all a very strange experience.


“Keep the change, pal”

This is definitely one of the most memorable deliveries I had when I worked as a driver for this Japanese restaurant.

It was sent to this house with an order of a steak hibachi and a couple of sushi rolls that added up to something like $19.60. I liked to call before I got to a place, just to give people a bit of a heads up, so by the time I got to the door it was already open. In the doorway stood a chubby kid, about 9 or 10 years old that reminded me a lot of the kid from Bad Santa, but without the curly hair.

I tell him the total as I pass off his food. He hands me a $20 bill and with a straight face he smugly says, “Keep the change, pal.” Immediately after, he closes the door and I stood there for a second trying to process what just happened. When I got back to my car I noticed the time and realized it was way too early for that kid to be home from school. I couldn’t help but laugh at the whole situation.

No wonder he sounded a bit cocky when he told me that I could keep the $.40 in change. This kid probably faked being sick so he could stay from school and was probably in there watching TV or playing video games while eating sushi and feeling like a big shot.

I know I would’ve at that age.


Not-so-shy-guy

I rang the doorbell and a woman about my age — 23 at the time — opened the door. We were going through the usual exchange of pizza and money, when another woman who appeared to be her mother began walking towards us. “Well if you’re not going to do it, I will,” she said, while at the same time removing her shirt.

I was somewhat taken aback and must have looked confused while keeping eye contact with the young woman who was visibly embarrassed. “Don’t be shy, you can look at them you know,” the mother said.

I glanced down at her boobs, then up to her face and gave a nod of approval. I looked back at the daughter, said thank you and walked back to my car. They tipped well too, so pretty decent delivery if I’m honest.

The #1 Takeout Food Among College Students Might Surprise You

College-Takeout-One

Back in college, we couldn’t go two days without scarfing down a slice of pizza. The relatively cheap takeout option was split between friends and classmates alike. Turns out, there’s a new popular food among the college crowd these days.

According to USA Today, the top takeout food among college students is now: Frozen Yogurt. In a recent posting of its ordering data, GrubHub listed the top ten foods ordered by college students in its database.

GrubHub, a major online food ordering company, has operations in hundreds of major U.S. cities as well as London. It’s fair to say the data is accurate.

Other foods that made the list were waffle fries, chicken souvlaki pita, chocolate chip brownies, hibachi chicken, vegetarian spring roll, sweet and sour chicken, pizza, buffalo wings and California rolls.

Why froyo owns the #1 spot is tough to say.

It is, however, awesome to see folks ordering such diverse dishes these days. Maybe in a few years, we’ll see our cake-sadilla make the list.

KFC Releases Unique Take-Out Containers Made to Fit Your Car’s Cup Holder

KFC-Go-Cups

KFC is catering to our never-ending quest for convenience and has “officially upgraded snacking” with their new KFC Go Cups. The method behind this Go-Cup madness? Apparently, according to this infographic via KFC, the chain thinks America’s cup holders aren’t reaching their full potential.

KFC-go-cup-info

Yes, the struggle is real. Looking to solve this national crisis, KFC created the Go Cup — plastic take-out containers featuring a cup designed to fit snugly in most cup holders, allowing for easy in-car, on-the-go grubbing.

kfc-gocup

Guests will be able to customize their Go Cups with seasoned potato wedges alongside one of the five options: a piece of Original Recipe Boneless chicken, a Chicken Little sandwich, two Extra Crispy Tenders, three Hot Wings or four Original Recipe Bites. A divider found inside the Go Cup keeps the chicken separate from the wedges and the entire shebang will set you back $2.49.
