Huge Line Of Cars Queue For McDonald's After Drive Thru Reopens

You would think that with more time to reflect, the ongoing global pandemic would put certain things into perspective. Well, a video has been shared online showing an enormous line of cars queuing up to a McDonald's in France after some branches reopen.

It's good to see people haven't lost their sense of what's important.

The scrummage for a Big Mac and fries comes as the fast food chain decided to reopen a number of restaurants, despite the international crisis.

The bizarre clip was taken by Valentine Pelous, who was passing by when he spotted the massive trail of cars waiting to get to the drive thru in Moissy-Cramayel, in the department of Seine-et-Marne.

He said the gridlock lasted for a mammoth three hours and it is the first restaurant to reopen in the area, with 15 stores set to open across western France.

Another resident Joshua told local media: "I had to use another road to go home because it was so gridlocked."

He said: "I thought I'd stop there on my way home, but there were already so many cars... I couldn't.

"In the evening when I went to play sports, there were even more people. Some friends waited up to three hours to get their McDonald's!"

Sebastien, another local resident, said: "I went shopping around 5pm and the queue was already snail-paced. It must have lasted until 10pm."

This comes a few weeks after customers in the UK queued for miles to get their final McDonald's meal after the chain announced it would be closing up shop during lockdown.

Not knowing when they were going to be able to get their next fix of McDonald's, people flocked out in their dozens for one last taste.

Taking to Twitter, someone wrote: "I had to take the backroads to get to Sainsbury's to buy sushi for our lunch. Thought there was a massive queue to get in to the car park but the road into the supermarket was clear. The queue was a panic-buying queue for....... #McDonalds."

Another added: "Just went past a McDonald's and the queue for the drive thru is proper out onto a main road like no joke a 50 car queue!!"
