Bad news for Audi, Lexus, Google, and other companies keen on developing driverless cars: you've been beaten to the punch.

A video making the rounds on YouTube shows a driverless car pulling into the drive-through of various fast food restaurants, causing plenty of alarm and confusion among the people working the window.

The catch: there's actually a hidden driver.

The man behind the video prank is 24-year-old magician Rahat Hossain. Hossain, who lives in Virgina Beach, Va., has a YouTube channel called Magic of Rahat. The channel features dozens of videos with him using optical-illusion tricks to prank unsuspecting passersby and fast food employees working the drive-through window.

What's so surprising? Driverless cars get hungry too and when you're driving, "drive-thru" makes sense.
