Man 'genuinely surprised' at receiving nothing in bag after ordering nothing at McDonald's

Man 'genuinely surprised' at receiving nothing in bag after ordering nothing at McDonald's

We all love a McDonald's meal once in a while as a little treat, some of us more than others - but this one man was delighted to find nothing in his order from the fast-food giant.

Sounds like a disaster, so let us explain.

Rob DenBleyker, originally from Canada but now a Texas resident, decided to do a little experiment while ordering from McDonald's.

Using Doordash - essentially the US' Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats equivalent - Rob looked at the menu to decide what he fancied.

He eventually decided on a $1.89 cheeseburger, but unticked the meat, mustard, ketchup, onions, pickle, cheese, the bun and even salt - essentially ordering nothing.

Rob took to Twitter to his 200k followers to explain his order.

In his first tweet posted to @RobDenBleyker, he said: "OK let's try this again, ordering a nothing burger from McDonald's. This time nothing else was in the order. Will they cancel it? Deliver an empty bag?

"I am doing this so you don't have to."

The fast-food restaurant was apparently confused by what Rob wanted on his order, which led to the delivery driver messaging him.

But Rob admitted to not replying to the courier and just waited to see what would arrive at his door.

His next tweet said: "THEY DELIVERED AN EMPTY WRAPPER!!"

Rod Spoke to Metro.co.uk about his experiment, saying he was 'genuinely surprised' but 'so happy' at the final result.

He said: "I was ordering lunch from McDonalds and noticed that inside the Doordash app you can remove ingredients from a cheeseburger until there isn’t a cheeseburger anymore.

"I was curious to see what would happen if I ordered a non-existent burger.

"I expected McDonald's to cancel the order, or assume I’m an idiot who doesn’t understand delivery apps and send me a regular cheeseburger.

"I was genuinely surprised to not only get a wrapper, but a wrapper inside a sealed paper bag!

"I got exactly what I paid for, which was nothing. I was so happy that everyone involved understood that I wanted nothing, and they delivered nothing.

"I was also a little hungry because I didn’t order any lunch."

On Twitter, Rob later said that he tipped the DoorDash delivery driver $6 (£5) for the trouble of delivering the bizarre order. Fair play.
