Video: The ghost at the drive-through

posted at 6:18 pm on January 10, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via the Sideshow, a minor classic to cleanse the palate. If this were Brazil, the prank would have ended with the guy flinging off the car-seat costume to reveal himself dressed like a bloody corpse at the moment the clerk was peering through the window. But what can I tell you, guys. In the age of Obama, America’s just not as competitive as it used to be.

this guy is brilliant, mixing magic and pranks with candid camera is an inspired idea

plus it’s nice to see drive thru workers have a little excitement, that must be a dull job

Heh, I don’t know which is better…Brazil’s pranks or Japan’s game shows.

Dang this vid went viral at ludicrous speed, that’s for sure. It’s cool to see this stuff instead of the old “fire in the hole” crud.

Good thing the clerk didn’t have a gun.

PappyD61 on January 10, 2013 at 6:22 PM

damn!

soundingboard on January 10, 2013 at 6:22 PM

What a great gag!

The reactions are priceless.

Tim_CA on January 10, 2013 at 6:25 PM

I’d have handed the guy in the car an empty paper cup and empty burger box, and told him “here’s the ghost of a burger and Coke. Have a great day!”

At least half of these are racist.

If you thought it was funny, you’re a racist.

lol…you’d be sued into oblivion if you tried pulling those brazilian pranks here.

They are, indeed, far superior.

Tim_CA on January 10, 2013 at 6:32 PM

Much funnier than Adam Smith. The ghost did not declare that he’s…

1) “A nice guy”

2) “Totally Heterosexual!”

or

3) “Not a gay in me”

Rebar on January 10, 2013 at 6:31 PM

lol

Dammit!…and I laughed.

I’ve never felt so unclean.

Tim_CA on January 10, 2013 at 6:33 PM

Heh, it’s so easy to fool Obama supporters.

BruthaMan on January 10, 2013 at 6:36 PM

blatantblue on January 10, 2013 at 6:41 PM

Gurl.

blatantblue on January 10, 2013 at 6:42 PM

Gurl!!!!!

Really?!

Hill60 on January 10, 2013 at 6:43 PM

I like the guy that keeps closing the window…turning around, turning back to and opening the window…over and over.

He seems certain that someone will suddenly appear.

Tim_CA on January 10, 2013 at 6:44 PM

Thanks for the laugh Allah. I needed that. ; ) More coffee!

Bmore on January 10, 2013 at 6:50 PM

When did they let Obama start driving himself again?

rogerb on January 10, 2013 at 6:53 PM

This has been making its FB rounds for a bit. Check out his other pranks.

guido911 on January 10, 2013 at 6:53 PM

Heh, it’s so easy to fool Obama supporters.

BruthaMan on January 10, 2013 at 6:36 PM

lol…they should be used to it by now…having just received their post-fiscal-cliff paychecks.

Tim_CA on January 10, 2013 at 6:54 PM

That’s waaay cool!

listens2glenn on January 10, 2013 at 6:57 PM

Thanks, I needed that.

sadsushi on January 10, 2013 at 7:19 PM

Floating soda was great. “When I was eleven I got a letter from Hogwarts”…….LOL

dddave on January 10, 2013 at 7:21 PM

Love the worker who had to seek independent confirmation that she wasn’t tripping.

Room 401… you’ll dig it.

equanimous on January 10, 2013 at 7:44 PM

Empty car, window down, key in ignition? Surprised no one tried to take it.
