It was bound to happen, you’ve got a ready outlet for videos of this nature in You Tube, you have a legion of creative individuals out there, clearly with way too much time on their hands, and you’ve got a built-in supply of unsuspecting fast food workers, as the drive through restaurant has become an intrinsic part of the American landscape. Put the three together and you have the perfect recipe for video drive thru pranks.
One of the best people out there pulling these sorts of pranks is Rahat Hossain. Operating under the moniker of the Magic of Rahat, he’s a certified magician. Under the auspices of Penguin Magic, Rahat produces videos for distribution over You Tube.
Based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, he makes most of his own props for the pranks you’ll see in the accompanying videos. Other times, he takes existing tricks and bends them to fit his genre. To capture reactions, Rahat uses a hidden camera in the car. He says one in four people will catch the camera, but for the most part they’re so startled by the prank, they never see it.
A working magician who has done parties and corporate events, Rahat’s having a good time doing the videos, but his ultimate goal is to produce a stage show and perform live. Given he has upwards of 300 million views on You Tube, we think he’s well on his way. If you’ve seen him already, have fun with these again, if you haven’t, well…
