'Genius' French fry ordering hack seemingly makes eating in cars easier, viral video shows

A viral TikTok video is revealing how you can make an order of French fries easier to eat while sitting in a car if you request the side be shoveled into a cup.

Internet personality Tommy Winkler, of Lombard, Illinois, who also goes by the nickname “The Food Guy” and shares videos on his many restaurant adventures, uploaded a TikTok video demonstrating the “#foodhack” on Thursday, July 13.

The 29-second video shows Winkler drove to a McDonald’s drive-thru, and he politely asked if he could get an order of large fries inside a large cup.

“Game changer,” one TikTok user wrote.

“That’s actually smart though,” another user commented.

While there’s reportedly no laws against eating while driving, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration considers the multitasking behavior to be a form of distracted driving and the agency discourages drivers from doing it the same way it discourages texting, talking, fiddling with stereo, entertainment and navigation systems.
