Fast-food workers of the world, you’ve been warned: If a car pulls up to your drive-thru window, all empty seats, it’s probably haunted.
By Rahat the Magician Prankster, of course, because we all know ghosts aren’t real, right? That, and Rahat runs quite the YouTube prank emporium, including video stunts involving levitating cups, electric credit cards, leaping raccoons and floating U.S. bills.
No, his latest drive-thru prank doesn’t involve an expensive car with clusters of LEDs draped over one side (or a camera on the other, though that would’ve been cool, too). In this case, it’s a relatively simple, brilliantly subtle trick done with cardboard, what looks like a sheet of stitched vinyl, and a bunch of duct tape — call it a “car-seat costume,” because Rahat does. He even gives up the trick at the video’s outset, because it’s not the trick you’re watching for, it’s the dumbfounded reactions.
The best one? Not “There’s no one in the car!” Not “Oh snap.” Pay attention from 2:36, because we’ve all been there at one time or another.
