Reporter Lucas de Jong decided to see if diners could beat the eight-car chain set in Christchurch on Tuesday night when one woman paid for the car behind's meal.

He took the concept to a McDonald's drive-through in Auckland, where he paid for the next customer's meal then asked if they would like to do the same.
