McDonald's worker pulls robot prank

maccy-s.jpg

So sophisticated are the computerised conversations of today’s Siri-dotted landscape, people rarely raise so much as eyebrow when they're confronted by a talkative 'bot.

This, it seems, proved all too tempting for one McDonald’s employee in the US, who’s been taking orders from customers by mimicking the rich tones of an automated ordering machine.

Footage of the prank, which also shows a colleague’s mirthful reaction, has now been released online, proving that a) people are too naive, and b) should Stephen Hawking's planetary gigs ever dry up, there will always be a fast-food job going.

See the footage below:
