A college basketball match was interrupted after an Uber Eats driver walked onto the court to deliver a McDonald’s order.
On Wednesday, Loyola Chicago and Duquense were taking on each other at the UPMC Cooper Fieldhouse in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
In the second of the match, the Uber Eats driver casually walked onto the court whilst holding a bag of food and drinks from McDonald’s. You can watch the footage below.
The incident left the commentators baffled as they looked on whilst the match was being halted due to a food delivery.
One commentator was heard saying: “Somebody came on the floor, on the far side, looking for an Uber eats delivery or something.
“There he is carrying some McDonald’s.
“I’m actually not kidding, I think that’s what’s happening.”
A second commentator added: “This guy’s in the corner, was he gonna deliver the McDonald’s to somebody on the court? Can we rule that out?”
Both commentators shouted: “There he is!” as the replay of the incident was shown.
Loyola Ramblers assistant director, Austin Hansen believes the whole incident was staged for a video.
He wrote on Twitter: “This kid was clearly doing a prank for Youtube/TikTok.
“You can see that he is wearing a microphone, and tons of students were filming him with their phones.
“They didn’t kick him out. He just casually walked back into the stands with his McDonalds in hand.”

It was later revealed by Pittsburgh Sports News reporter Zachary Weiss that the person was not an Uber Eats driver, he said he was someone who “threw a jacket on, used a hidden camera and had a friend record from higher up.”
He added: “The individual on the court was ejected from the premises.”
Uber Eats’ official Twitter also joined in the fun, they replied: “Nothing but net.”
