"Order sniping” is a prank popularized by Dominic Harris in his YouTube video, “Drive Thru Order Sniping Prank,” published on December 19, 2013. The video appeared on the popular website Funny or Die on February 25, 2014.

The video shows someone making an order at a restaurant drive-thru. Then, a person appears out of nowhere and speaks into the microphone, adding to the order. This person then walks or runs away.
