A 17-year-old restaurant employee has gone viral on TikTok after she failed to recognise Adam Sandler when he asked for a table.
Dayanna Rodas, who works at an IHOP in Long Island, New York, posted security camera footage of the 54-year-old actor waiting at the hostess stand with his daughter. The clip shows Sandler walking out after being told they would have to wait at least 30 minutes before being seated.
“Not realizing its Adam Sandler and telling him it’s a 30min wait and him ofc leaving bc hes not going to wait 30mins for IHOP,” she wrote in the video.

The video was captioned “Pleaseee come back.”
The video has received more than 10 million views, 2 million likes and more than 18,000 comments.
In a separate video, the teenager explained why she didn’t instantly recognise The Wedding Singer star waiting in line.
“He had a big beard. I’ve never seen Adam Sandler with a beard and the mask didn’t help,” she said.
Sandler’s rep confirmed to HuffPost that it was in fact the Saturday Night Live alum who visited the IHOP, but gave no further comment.
Rodas, for her part, told the New York Post that it “wasn’t until a customer walked in about 15 minutes later saying, ‘Adam Sandler was outside,'” that she realised she had “spoke to Adam Sandler!”
