The video is posted by Bhargav Joshi on his Twitter handle who with his three other friends went to hang out at McDonald’s in Gujarat. He has stated that his other friends took two gulps of the cold drink and were shaking the drink because of which the lizard which was stuck at the bottom of the beverage glass started floating.
He further claimed that the outlet staff ignored their complaints. He mentioned that he and his friends were there at the outlet for around four hours awaiting some action from the senior officials however no one paid heed to their complaints. They said that the staff only proposed them a refund of Rs 300. Another man from the group is heard saying, “A life is worth ₹ 300?”
