An aspiring social media star has shared his ‘hack’ for getting free food at McDonald’s — which, it turns out, is just to steal it.
Dallas, who goes by @dalzoot on social media and is currently based in California, uploaded a video in October titled ‘How to Get Free Food at McDonald’s,’ adding the hashtag #LifeHack.
His video goes on to shop him going through a McDonald’s drive-thru and tricking the employees into giving him another customer’s order.
Hack? An aspiring social media star has shared his ‘hack’ for getting free food at McDonald’s — which, it turns out, is just to steal it

Dallas, who has 13 TikTok fans and 11 YouTube subscribers, shared the video across several platform.
‘I’ma show you guys how to steal some food from McDonald’s. It’s pretty easy. All you gotta do is follow the steps,’ he says.
He films himself pulling up to a McDonald’s drive-thru, where he orders just a small cup of water, which is free.
When he pulls up to the first window, where customers pay, he tells the employee that he just ordered a water and she waves him through.
At the second window, he tells the employee he had a ‘split order’ and picks up the food that the car behind him ordered.
Scam artist: After only ordering a small cup of water, he is waved through at the cashier’s window
Stolen: At the pickup window, he takes the order of the car behind him and drives off
‘Act like this is what you ordered,’ he tells viewers as he drives away with someone else’s food.
Dallas’ scam only seems to work if the drive-thru has separate windows to pay and collect food — and if the scammer has no shame.
The young man proudly posted the video online, showing no guilt over the fact that he stole, messed up the order of the person behind him, and created a stressful situation for minimum-wage employees.
‘What a scumbag thing to do,’ wrote one commenter.
‘You have to be an absolute piece of s*** to do this,’ wrote another. ‘You’re not stealing from McDonald’s your stealing someone’s food behind you. Also you’re holding up the line for the rest of the people because you’re a broke a**. Go get a job and stop trying to steal $7 worth of food.

‘This dude is a pathetic bum,’ said another, while others called him ’embarrassing,’ a ‘thieving little dirtbag,’ and a ‘clown.’
‘This was called stealing in my day, I guess hack is a cute word for it,’ quipped another.
‘You should steal an application next time you swing by,’ one suggested — a comment that was echoed by several others who urged him to get a job.
