Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported another video has emerged of customer's takeaway being stolen at a drive-through window, this time it's in SA. The video was uploaded to Twitter by @dududube and is a mere 13 seconds long.

It was uploaded yesterday and has already gathered over 70 000 views on the social networking site. Some Saffa tweeps are in utter disbelief at the act while others found it to be absolutely hilarious.

It is currently unclear whether or not the customer's meal was replaced or what actions were taken. Some tweeps have been questioning the legitimacy of the video as the phone camera was already recording before anything happened.
