TikTokers dress up as BABY and PARENT to grab a free meal at restaurant in viral video
Coy Wickey and Brian O’Donnell have a huge fan base of 10.9 million followers and attract a wide range of audiences across the globe
A crazy viral TikTok video shows a pair of influencers dressed up as baby and parent, grabbing free meals from the IHOP. The video has caught the attention of millions of followers. The duo under the name @cheekyboys is known for creating such unique content on TikTok. Coy Wickey and Brian O’Donnell, the owners of the channel, have a huge fan base of 10.9 million followers and attracts a wide range of audiences across the globe.
The cheeky boys often fulfill the requests of their followers, and this one was one such act. “Go to IHOP dressed as a baby and try to get a free kid’s meal,” one comment read and they took the challenge. They were successfully mounting the TikTok video with 864,000 likes and received more than 8.4 million views. In the video, O’Donnell was fully dressed up as a baby, and Wickey acting as a parent pushing him in a stroller. Apparently, the couple managed to successfully get a free kid’s meal, per IHOP’s guidelines.
The IHOP's free meal option states that there is “free entry for children under 12 on children’s menus for a limited time at participating locations.” The @cheekyboyos took advantage of the situation and headed to an IHOP, presumably during commercial hours (between 4 pm and 10 pm). A sign posted in the window indicated that IHOP offers a “free kid’s meal” with every adult entree. O’Donnell sucks a binky and hides under a blanket. The restaurant was pretty empty and the waiter didn't seem to be happy, while he was taking the orders.
In the video, the waiter asks them for their order, “Only a few chicken tenders are okay for the baby,” said Wickey. “Would you like some chicken tenties? applesauce?” he asked. Once the waiter even referred to O'Donnell as a baby without even looking at him. This gradually caught the attention of netizens and was amazed to see how these leads managed to get a free meal. The waiter was seen coming to their table and asking for more orders if they wished to and served them. At the end of the meal, they reveal that they were not charged for O’Donnell’s chicken tenders. The receipt shows Wickey’s adult order and a “KidsEatFree” write-down of where the chicken tenders should be.
Many viewers found it incredible that the staff didn’t say anything about the big baby. "Dude can’t do that,” said one amazed viewer. "No way did this really work, y’all are legends,” wrote another. Some of them really applauded their efforts, “As a waitress, if someone is going to the trouble of making a kid’s meal, I’ll give it to them,” @tinasue97 wrote for the video. Even though @cheekyboyos' accepts viewer requests, they revealed in a comment on the IHOP video that "this was by far the weirdest video we’ve made!"
