An apparent cinema employee has gone viral on TikTok after revealing a major secret about the sizes of popcorn you can buy at the movie theatre.
TikToker @thatcoolguy.25597 revealed that people who have purchased the medium sized popcorn may have been scammed as the small and medium actually contain the same amount of popcorn.
The viral, clip which has been viewed over 7 million times, shows the TikToker pretending to be a customer ordering popcorn at a theatre.
The video then shows the same guy as the worker behind the counter showing the available sizes – a large bucket, a regular bucket (medium), and a junior bag (small).
The customer buys the smallest bag for $7.35. But after receiving the bag, the customer changes his mind and asks for the medium size.
At that point, the TikToker behind the counter empties the small bag of popcorn into the medium bucket. But it gets filled to the top, meaning the quantity offered in both the bags is the same. Although the medium costs an extra $1.09.
Unsurprisingly, the video has gone massively viral with many cinema-goers getting astounded by the apparent ‘scam’.
