Taika Waititi Fucked Up A Food Order & Let Some Random Have His Dinner

The absolute sting of copping a bung food delivery app order, through no fault of your own, burns deep within the soul of any self-respecting lazy and/or tired hungry person. But it takes a certain special person to recognise that that particularly galling crisis also happens to be a golden opportunity to do some good. Enter: Taika Waititi.

Taiki, known not only for directing Thor: Ragnarok but also wearing the absolute shit out of a good-ass printed shirt, found himself in the most heinous of food delivery app quandaries yesterday: pick-up only, no delivery.

Turns out Waititi dropped on a Postmates order on an entirely decent meal from an Umami Burger outlet in Hollywood. Unfortunately, Postmates then insisted he – get this – leave the house and pick the order up himself. Which is honestly some real bullshit.

Owing to a house full of children, casually leaving to go pick food up wasn’t exactly achievable. But instead of getting indignant, firing off a tersely worded customer complaint calling the app “snake oil-peddling dogs” (a normal thing people do, I swear) and demanding a full refund, he took to Twitter and put the call out to any hungry people in the area.

Sure enough:

How’s the face on the bloke? Incredible areas.

It gets even funnier when you consider the 16, 17-odd people who walked into that Umami Burger *after* old mate there and said “Hi, order for Taika?

For those of you playing along at home, Taika’s Umami Burger order? One Manly Burger (beer-cheddar, bacon lardons, onion strips, umami ketchup, mustard), one Impossible Burger (Impossible patties, grilled onions, American cheese, miso mustard, dill pickles, lettuce, tomato), a regular serve of thin fries, a serve of sweet potato fries, and a serve of crispy brussels sprouts.

Knowledge is power, etc.
