This Guy's Crazy Story About A 1 AM Milkshake Run Is Going Viral

Update: By now you probably know about "that milkshake guy," Josh Raby. (If you've been living under an internet rock for the past couple of days, see below.) We really wanted to believe that Raby's story was true, but we had our doubts. And now, two days later, those doubts are being confirmed by a series of Tweets from Raby that we can be sure will send the internet into a whole other viral tizzy. Here are the highlights:

Is nothing sacred in this world? Alas. At least McDonald's knows how to laugh about the whole ordeal, not to mention capitalize on a major PR moment.
This story was originally published on April 11, 2016.

It's Monday afternoon and like most weeks, we're all probably wondering what we could have possibly done to deserve the weekend being so far away. Or we were, until we got completely lost in the saga of a 1 a.m. milkshake run and a McDonald's couple that needs their own Lifetime TV movie. So, if you've got a bad case of the Mondays, get ready to feel better, thanks to some good old-fashioned viral internet gold.

Let's rewind for a minute. We don't want to give away too much of the story, but here's the gist of what happened. According to Buzzfeed, writer Josh Raby live-Tweeted a rather peculiar after-hours experience he had at McDonald's. He just wanted a milkshake, but what he got was much, much more than that. It involves a husband and wife that allegedly met at McDonald's in 1993, a 37-minute wait time despite there being no line, and a full on make-out session. It's...worth reading.

Raby confirmed to Buzzfeed that the story is real and even posted the below photo to prove it.
Whether or not you choose to believe the saga is up to you, but regardless, Raby performed a feat of pure Twitter genius last night. Check out how it all started below and for the full account see Josh Raby's Twitter.
