You might be a Belieber but you still have to admit Justin Bieber’s T-Mobile ad for the Super Bowl was awkward, to say the least. At least, a Minnesota police department thinks so.
The police department in the town of Wyoming, Minnesota, warned drivers via a tweet that if they are caught driving under the influence on Super Bowl night, they would be forced to watch the embarrassing advert repeatedly, all the way to jail.
The embarrassing ad titled “#UnlimitedMoves” features Bieber in a tuxedo and granny glasses, recounting the history of the end zone dance with the help of myriad of other people, including New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and former American football wide receiver Terrell Owens.
The message was meant to be a deterrent to only the few thousands of citizens of Wyoming but the cruel and unusual punishment caught the attention of the masses, who then repeatedly retweeted and shared it far and wide.
Here are some of the amazing responses from the Twitterverse:
Even T-Mobile took the jest in good spirit:
@TaraBroadway Glad to bring some laughter to your night! Thanks for the shout out! *AlexisG— T-Mobile?? (@TMobile) February 6, 2017
At the time of writing this, there are more than 10,000 retweets and almost 17,000 likes for the creative warning.
“I don’t think we envisioned this much success with it,” Wyoming Police Officer Tony Zerwas told Minneapolis station KMSP TV. “Just that one single tweet had 1.1 million views.”
However, the tweet did its job as the police department made not a single drunk driving arrest Sunday night.
