An unnamed police officer is winning over the internet with his “socially distanced” brand of public service.
The officer’s viral fame began after a TikTok user named iceman_out shared a video of his visit to a McDonald’s drive-thru on April 30. In the clip, the user appears to be waiting in line for his food with the windows down as he looks across the parking lot toward a police SUV.
Inside the cop car, an officer can be heard using his radio to jokingly question the TikToker about his order.
“What did you order? Did you get the No. 10 — Big Mac?” the officer says. “Extra fries? Yum yum yum.”
“Meanwhile, at the Mac shack,” iceman_out captioned his video, which has since been viewed nearly 2 million times.
The McDonald’s customer can be heard cackling at the officer’s questions, a sentiment that seemed to mirror thousands of social media reactions. TikTok users flooded in comments praising the cop, while also noting that his behavior struck them as a little odd.
“Why can’t the cops be like this in my town,” one user asked.
“Honestly if I was a cop I’d just do this all day,” another joked.
“Yup hes lost his mind. The boredom has set in,” another added.
Others argued that the officer’s comical stunt should have been enough to earn him the order he described over his radio.
“I woulda bought him that order and set it down by his car then backed off,” one user suggested as a socially distanced delivery method.
