Amusing footage was caught the moment a calf was captured riding in the backseat of a vehicle in a Wisconsin McDonald’s drive-thru.
Jessica Nelson recorded the incident in the Marshfield drive-thru as she sat three cars behind the Buick Sedan with the cow’s face staring out of the back window.
‘A whole freaking cow!!! Tell me you live in Wisconsin without telling me you live in Wisconsin’, she posted with the video on Facebook, a nod to her home state’s famous dairy industry.
The caption on the video read that there was a whole cow in the back of that vehicle.
According to Jessica Nelson, Mosinee, Wisconsin, was originally convinced the cow was fake and didn’t realise that there were two other calves in the backseat as well.
The owner, identified only as Bernie, also said that the cow in the video was a calf as well.
Nelson told a newspaper outlet that she thought it was fake at first. Who puts a cow in a Buick? But then its whole head moved, and she said that she just took the video of it because she was so blown away that there was a cow in the back of a Buick.
The video became an overnight success after Nelson posted the video on August 26, and she said that she woke up to 52K views, over 2K shares, and at least 6 news sources reaching out to use her video, all because an old man drove through McDonald’s with a cutie cow and that she wished she was able to give him all the credit because all she did was just shoot the video.
Since the video was posted, it’s received 215,000 views along with 344 comments and 2,000 likes on Facebook, with one user saying that there was nothing wrong with taking a cow to get a burger, and another added jokingly that they hoped the cow was wearing a diaper.
However, it does make you wonder if fast food restaurants are that desperate for food! And we know there’s a milkshake shortage at McDonald’s, but what the hell!
Perhaps it was just a good lesson for the cow, that if it doesn’t behave, it will end up like its mother, a patty in a fast-food sandwich.
But in all fairness, the cow did look like it was looking out of the car window enjoying the scenery, and I know that McDonald’s are having problems with their supply chain, but this really isn’t the answer. Of course, there’s nothing like bringing your own meat with you.
However, this cow looks quite happy and seems to be treated a lot better than a lot of farmers treat their livestock, and this brings a whole new meaning to Animal Farm.
