I think we can all agree that life’s stressful moments would be vastly improved by the presence of a helpful drag queen in a Disney princess gown. And now that I’ve seen a video of this very kind of hero in action, I’m even more certain of this statement.
On Tuesday, a blizzard hit Boston — and 37-year-old attorney Jason Triplett thought it would be vastly entertaining to dress up as Elsa from Frozen during the snowfall.
At one point during the frigid evening, however, a police wagon became stuck in a snowdrift. Triplett heroically pushed the vehicle free of the snow, all while dressed in his Elsa gown and wig. (A feat which was fortunately captured on video.)
A drag queen dressed as Elsa just single-handedly freed a stuck police wagon from a blizzard in the middle of March. If that sentence doesn’t perfectly encapsulate the spirit of Boston, I don’t know what does.

Obviously, Twitter was 100% here for this drag queen Elsa who was helping to keep people safe during the snow storm.
No gloves, in a gown & a curtsy at the end! ❄❤

Do you wanna build a snowman? Or push a truck out of a drift? https://t.co/Vk3y1MpkIF

People felt that it was an accurate and affectionate portrayal of the Boston spirit.

Although I think we can all agree that Elsa’s friends should have maybe stopped filming and come outside to help her out.
This is awesome, but whoever was doing the video should have put that phone down and helped.

Yeah but what does it say about Boston that none of the people laughing in the video went out there to help Elsa? https://t.co/eKqqNL6gBZ

Triplett tells BuzzFeed that he’s happy that “people were really getting a kick out of it.” However, as BuzzFeed reports, “Triplett said he never expected to go this viral and said he wouldn’t go on The Ellen DeGeneres Show unless Adam Rippon was there.”
I think he’s my new favorite person.
