Depending on where you live, there's a good chance you dealt with snow and ice over the past week. (At least if you are located in the United States where CinemaBlend is based.) In fact, you might even go so far as to say you were "frozen." Capitalizing on that joke, the Seymour, Indiana Police Department revealed they are currently on the lookout for a popular character from Frozen, Queen Elsa, the 21-year-old sister of Anna from Arendelle who has been accused of "maintaining a common nuisance," thanks to bringing on the cold. You can check out the full post, below.
During the cold weather this past week, the Seymour Police Department used Queen Elsa as a means to help people know to bundle up and make sure if they have outdoor pets to bring them inside. Amusingly, the police department seems to be on the lookout for Queen Elsa, and they are enlisting the help of the public, even to the point of leaving a legitimate phone number on the post (the number's for Dispatch). I wonder after the wanted poster and post went viral if the poor individuals running the line had to deal with a slew of prank calls, but it's all in good fun, I suppose. And hey, at least if Elsa gets arrested she'll look pretty swell in that sparkly blue dress. (In fact there are some photos in the Facebook thread that show exactly what Elsa getting arrested looks like.
Since it's been a whopping four years since Frozen initially hit theaters, this joke of all jokes may be coming a little late, but since Olaf's Frozen Adventure came out earlier this year and Frozen 2 is -- finally -- on the way in 2019, keeping Elsa relevant isn't a bad thing. Plus, Frozen is a movie phenomenon in a way that a lot of Disney films haven't been. The flick made $1.2 billion worldwide, so it's a joke that people all over the world are going to understand, too.
As far as cops trying to get in on the viral game goes, this isn't the first time a police department had the idea to use a movie reference. When the new IT movie came out a few months ago, the Gaineseville Police Department had the brilliant idea of setting donuts up leading into the gutter where Pennywise the clown presumably lived. Other police departments have used Batman to fight crimes and more. Let's not forget the time that stormtroopers made it into the Fort Worth Police Department's recruitment video.
