Video of a young man bathing in a kitchen sink at a US Wendy's restaurant has gone viral online.
As others watch, the shirtless and barefoot young man is encouraged to climb into the large sink, full of soapy water.
"Take a bath, take a bath. Get in there," a voice is heard saying. Lowering himself into the water, the man is asked: "How's it feel?" "It's warm," he replies as several people in Wendy's uniforms watch and record on their cellphones.
A bystander turns on the jets for the full spa experience, before the man complains they are making the bath too hot.
A video was uploaded to Facebook, with the caption: "i don’t suggest anyone eating at the milton wendy’s again".
Telling the man to really get stuck in, one woman says: "Wash your armpits, ooh yeah ooh."
If that's wasn't stomach-churning enough, he's then encouraged to show off his feet; "Let's see them toes, let's see them toes," an excited voice is heard saying.
People online have been quick to respond, with many people finding the video pretty gross! One person commented on the video, saying "I hope they lost their jobs".
The stunt didn't end well for the fast-food workers, with one boss telling the Pensacola News Journal it was unacceptable.
Mike Johnson, marketing director with Carlisle, the company that owns the Milton Wendy's, shared the following statement with the newspaper.
"We are taking this incident seriously and it is obviously totally unacceptable. This was a prank by a person who no longer works at this restaurant, and who clearly did not use good judgement. We are taking this opportunity to reinforce our very strict quality procedures with our restaurant team."
