Man Dressed as Elsa Rescues Police Wagon from Snow

Hey, the cold never bothered her anyway, right?

Video of a drag queen dressed like Queen Elsa of Arendelle has gone viral after a blizzard blanketed Boston on Tuesday night and this unexpected hero came to the rescue of a stuck police truck.

It all started with city resident Chris Haynes eating tacos at South End restaurant The Gallows.

When he took a peek outside to see how much snow was falling, Haynes was taken aback to find a man dressed like a certain Frozen character helping out Boston's finest.

"Yup, that just happened," Haynes wrote as a caption on Facebook upon sharing the video, which has been viewed over 3.9 million times.

He added:

"Drag ‘Elsa’ just single-handedly pushed out a stuck police wagon. Only in the South End and The Gallows."

According to The Boston Globe, the Elsa impersonator was Jason Triplett, a 37-year-old lawyer from Boston who had no real motivation for donning this costume aside from making his friends laugh.

In the viral footage, Triplett repeatedly tries to free the wagon from the snow until, at long last, he succeeds.

“That’s what makes the video so special, I think,” Haynes told Boston.com. “Because of his persistence.”

One might (annoyingly) say that, when it came to this task, Triplett refused to LET IT GO until he pushed the van to freedom.

Everyone inside the restaurant cheered loudly after Triplett accomplished his feat, which prompted a curtsy from the pretend queen.

“The officers involved were especially grateful for the help and would like to thank the Elsa-impersonator for the assist,” Boston Police Officer James Kenneally, a spokesman for the department, told the aforementioned newspaper.

“Everyone will be over it by noon,” Triplett himself told People Magazine of his fame. “But if this is my 15 minutes, I would like to leverage it to meet Adam Rippon.”

Elsa May Be a Lesbian, Much to the Chagrin of These Parents

Conceal don’t feel, don’t let them know/Well now they know/Let it go, let it go/Can’t hold it back anymore.

When Queen Elsa sang these words in Frozen, she may have been belting out lyrics about her super scary ice powers…

… or she may have been coming out of the closet as a lesbian.

There are movie goers who believe the latter, and who have been pushing for Disney to give Elsa a girlfriend in the upcoming Frozen sequel.

Might this actually happen?

Writer and co-director Jennifer Lee has chimed in on these rumors, which has prompted quite the outcry on Twitter.

Scroll down for the full story…

1. Is Elsa Actually Gay?!?

Lee won’t say, but she’s aware of the chatter and told The Huffington Post the following: “Where we’re going with it, we have tons of conversations about it, and we’re really conscientious about these things. For me … Elsa’s every day telling me where she needs to go, and she’ll continue to tell us. I always write from character-out, and where Elsa is and what Elsa’s doing in her life, she’s telling me every day. We’ll see where we go.”

2. #GiveElsaAGirlfriend

Long before Lee even made this comment, there was a viral movement to give Elsa a girlfriend in Frozen 2. This is one strong reason why.

3. Fire and Ice?

Gf please
See, some fans have a very clear idea of exactly how they want this same-sex hookup to go.

4. On the Other, Less Tolerant Hand…

No gf
… some folks out there are simply NOT having this idea. They’ve made some pretty strong statements against it.

5. Well, on This Hand…

… and on THAT hand. As you can see, the possibility of a lesbian Elsa has many parents very confused how to react.

6. Do It, Disney!

Great idea
Thankfully, many parents out there believe this move would serve as inspiration to many young people out there, those who are struggling with certain LGBT-related questions.
