Surprises at the drive-thru can be great, but they can also be terrifying.

Employees at some fast-food joints in the U.S. got quite the shock recently when they opened the window to serve a customer and saw a robot instead.

Well-known prankster Rahat Hossain, who goes by the name Magic of Rahat on YouTube, was behind the practical joke, in which he hid himself behind the robot in the driver's seat of his car.

The robot lit up and spoke to the employees as the car drove up to the window. Predictably, most screamed and pulled away, while one just offered it the sandwich it had ordered before it then caught her off-guard with a sinister voice.

But this isn't the first time Hossain has scared unsuspecting fast-food workers. In a prank from 2013, likely his most viral, he dressed up as a car seat and rolled up to drive-thrus in what appeared to be a driverless vehicle.

He also warmed hearts last year when he arranged for a store clerk to pretend that a homeless man's lottery ticket was a winner so he could take home $1,000. The man then offered to share the money with Hossain, inspiring a crowdfunding campaign to help get him back on his feet.

So while this video shows us a less charitable version of Hossain, it’s still a pretty entertaining afternoon watch. You can see more of his antics above.
