15 Fast Food Epic Fails

McDonald’s Is The Most Unpredictable Place Ever!

McDonald’s has been in our lives for a whopping 77 years now, after being founded in 1940. Two brothers, Richard and Maurice McDonald, first set up their barbecue restaurant all those years ago, without realizing how truly massive it would become. It wasn’t until 1953, however, that the first franchised restaurant with the famous Golden Arches was opened up. Over the last 77 years, McDonald’s has grown to be one of the most recognizable brands in the whole world. We all have fond memories of McDonald’s; from the epic birthday parties, you could have through to late night stop-offs after parties. You’re bound to see some weird and wonderful things every now and then. A bit like WalMart, which definitely seems to attract some colorful characters. These photos go to prove that there’s nowhere quite like the Golden Arches of Maccy D’s!

Free Wi-Fi

Look, if you’re going to advertise free Wi-Fi as a selling point to your fast food establishment, don’t be surprised if people start bringing in all of their devices. While you may have expected most people to bring in their laptops and tablets, one woman took it a step further when she brought in her entire personal computer. Like… How heavy was that to carry around? Someone needs to hook this lady up with some modern technology.

Do you sell treats?

“Excuse me, ma’am; I’d like one Big Mac meal for my owner and some treats for myself. Thanks, I’ll drive through.” Imagine going to work one morning, expecting to serve hundreds of hungry (human) customers and then seeing this through the window. Okay, so the beagle is totally adorable, and we’d give it anything it ordered, but it’s still totally insane. We might try this with our Pug and see if we get the same reaction.

A threatening message

Okay, so this is totally creepy (and also a little bit hilarious). This disgruntled customer obviously wasn’t very happy with the lack of crayons when they attended this McDonald’s – and so they decided to make their feelings clear with a rather disturbing message written in… tomato sauce. We hope. We can even see the offending chip that was turned into a writing utensil for this particular letter of complaint. It may be kinda creepy, but you wanna bet that this McDonald’s definitely got in some crayons after receiving it.

I can see you

You know the phrase, “I’ve got eyes in the back of my head”? Well, usually it’s said by a mom to her kids to stop them from misbehaving, but this guy means it quite literally. This creepy tattooed guy is the kind of person you’d see in those WalMart articles about how kooky their shoppers are… Wait, is that a WalMart bag in his hand? Well, there we go then. We wouldn’t want to be standing behind him in the queue to be honest. We’ll go to KFC!

Triple ice-burger

Who doesn’t love an ice-cream sandwich? It’s definitely in our top 20 food items (we like food, okay?!) but we’ve never seen McDonald’s selling them. It looks like this customer made a seriously smart move when they asked for the delicious McDonald’s ice-cream in a burger bun – thus making their very own ice cream sandwich. We are definitely going to give this a try the next time we fancy a sweet treat from McDonald’s.

DJ Ronald McDonald

Trying to make it big in the world of music is hard work. You can struggle for months just to get your first gig, and you’ll likely take anything that comes your way right at the beginning. This guy certainly isn’t fussy about what kind of gigs he takes. Who knew that McDonald’s did raves?! And how do we get invites to a McDonald’s party? We can imagine there’s some epic food available at this kind of gig.

Potato party

Maybe the DJ was hired for this potato party?! They’re a real thing in Asia… Seriously. The aim is to buy a whole ton of fries (about $250 worth in this case), and then no one is allowed to leave until every single fry has been consumed. What disturbs us is the entire lack of sauce in this photo. We’d get some serious dry mouth eating that many fries without a whole load of condiment to dip into.

Nex’ level planking

We miss the whole planking craze… Whatever happened to that? In case you don’t know what planking is (where have you been?!), it’s basically where you lie on stuff like you’re a wooden plank. And this guy has taken it to a whole ‘nother level with his planking on the McDonald’s famous golden arches. We want to know how he got up there and how he’s not absolutely terrified of falling off. He must have some massive chicken nuggets!

Hiding the healthy

Everyone’s mom tried to make them eat healthy all the time, right? Well, this mom went one step further when her children wouldn’t stop eating McDonald’s. She tried to disguise fruit as a burger and fries from her kid’s favorite fast food joint. While she may not have managed to fool them, we can’t help but admire her handiwork. We would still rather have a real Big Mac and fries though, sorry mom!


What did you want to be when you grew up? A ballet dancer? A vet? A firefighter? How about Ronald McDonald? We hope that this was just an epic costume party outfit and not her usual outfit – but, each to their own. The level of detail in this Ronald McDonald outfit is pretty amazing though; we have to give her that. She’s even managed to paint on that seriously creepy smile that the McDonald’s clown is so famous for.


We love a good tattoo fail, so this definitely ticks all of the right boxes for us. This teen from Stian Ytterdahl said that he got the tattoo of a McDonald’s receipt on his arm because his friends thought he’d been a bit too lady-happy recently and needed to be punished. He had the choice of a Barbie doll on his derriere or the receipt on his arm. Obviously, he’s not a lunatic, so he went for the receipt. Also, that seems like quite a large McDonald’s order… We wanna know what he had!

Is this a dream?

We have absolutely no idea what is going on in this photo and whether it’s something we’ve just dreamt up. Why is there a man sitting in his pajamas in the background? Why does that person have a horse’s head on? Why is everyone else acting like nothing is happening? We have a feeling we’re going to wake up soon, and this is all just going to be one seriously sketchy dream. Someone pinch us!

Long wait times

Don’t you hate it when you get to the drive-through, and the queue is ridiculously long? It turns out, this person couldn’t wait for food any longer, and by the time they got to the window, starvation had hit them. The poor McDonald’s worker looks absolutely terrified of the driving skeleton, before finding out it was a prank (phew). We think we would rather have had the Beagle making his order than this! Turns out, pranking McDonald’s staff is pretty hilarious though.


The Golden Arches

We love a good ol’ eyebrow trend! From the Instagram brows (dreamy) through the glitter brows, it seems as though the world can’t get enough of playing around with eyebrow hair. However, this is one trend we hope doesn’t catch on. This is Huda Kattan, a beauty blogger who decided to show off her love for McDonald’s with eyebrows that replicate The Golden Arches. She has used foundation to hide her natural brows, giving her one of the most bizarre (but actually kinda cool) looks of the eyebrow world.

Thanks for the ice cream

Ever heard of ‘coning’ before? It’s where you order an ice-cream, and then, instead of taking it by the cone, you take it by the ice-cream itself. It makes for a truly epic (if slightly) messy prank and definitely one we could see ourselves doing. This prankster managed to get his coning act on camera, which also captures the look of bewilderment on the McDonald’s worker’s face. She definitely didn’t see that ‘coning.’ See what we did there?
