That was fucking beautiful.

What the hell is a frito chili-cheese pie?

It's a variation of a regular frito pie. I don't know if sonic does it in the fritos bag, or baked, or what, though.

The girl taking the order should've risen to the occasion and sung back at him, rather than talking.

He has a nice voice. God, all that food he ordered sounded disgusting, though. Yikes.

This somehow achieves sloth-like levels of adorableness for me. The I-can't-quite-contain-it happiness in the voices of the employees taking the order, and his being on the brink of laughter the time, so perfect.

Awesome. I love his smile. Also, Sonic is pretty awesome in a drive-in, make-a-crazy-drink-with-weird-flavors way.

How the hell did he catch that she left the cheese off the tots? That's some serious concentration right there.

He was looking at the order written on paper right in front of him.

Someday when he's big and famous he won't be using paper anymore: he'll have that order on a video monitor, discreetly hidden in the dashboard, like Frank Sinatra had when he ordered food in Vegas.

You're dead to me.

And obviously not South of the Mason-Dixon line.

Apparently the video linked in the FPP was reuploaded without the guy's permission. Here is the original one (it's identical, but click on it and give the real artist some views).

I hate that there is a group of people who sit on youtube, download interesting videos the second they are uploaded, and then repost them in hopes of accumulating views.
Even worse: when they add a title-card and/or a watermark.

We just got a Sonic on Long Island, not far from Queens. I keep meaning to go out there. A couple of Texan coworkers of mine say it's pretty good.

You know, I bet if we asked the mods real nice, they'd replace the FPP link with the original YouTube URL, cause, well, heck, I believe that's just how we roll here at MeFi.

Now I want chili cheese tots and a cherry limeade. (SONIC TIP: They'll toss some jalapeƱos on your tater tots if you ask nicely.)

This made me smile. And I really needed a smile today.

The reddit thread says they have Coconut flavored drinks, like coconut Dr. Pepper. Is this true? How did I not know this? And what does that even taste like? Damn, now I am going to have to drive halfway out of town to a Sonic to find out!

I ate at Sonic the other day and while I was it started making me really depressed and uncomfortable. Then I thought about what it must be like for the people who work there. This guy is very kind.

Damn it BitterOldPunk, now I want tots. (Even more than usual, anyway.)

Either pina colada mixed with Dr Pepper or suntan lotion mixed with Dr Pepper, depending on your feelings towards coconut.

Well, now I need some tots and a slush. Just when my pregnancy cravings for Sonic had started to subside, the internet starts them all over again.

I'm jealous. the Sonics in my town didn't carry the fried cheesecake bites this year.

He was exceptionally kind to a minimum wage employee in a service job. Good for him, we need more of that.

Sonic burgers are pretty much crap but those slushes, man they are to die for.

I would also like a cherry limeade. Unfortunately, Sonic has not made cherry limeades in well over a decade. All they have is sprite with cherry syrup, a cherry, and a lime.

I'm not quite sure why, but I found the video entertaining. I must be getting soft in my old age.
