In just a few short weeks New England has been hit by three nor’easters leaving thousands without power and so much snow that parts of the region resemble Disney’s fictional kingdom, Arendelle.
In fact, during the last nor’easter, Arendelle’s own Queen Elsa made an appearance in Boston.
Let the storm rage on!
The hysterical scene happened outside The Gallows Bar in Boston on March 13 as the third nor’easter in just two weeks hit the region.
Christopher Haynes, a restaurant publicist, was at the gastropub at the time and heard a commotion towards the front of the establishment. When he went to check it out, he took out his phone and started recording.
“You can’t make it up,” Haynes told The Boston Globe. “The great part of the video is it just sort of shows you his unmitigated commitment to helping get the truck unstuck. That’s what makes it really fun.”
Elsa ran out of the pub and into the street to help the stuck police vehicle.
While at the pub during the snowstorm, Elsa noticed a Boston Police Department vehicle had got stuck in a snowbank.
According to the pub’s manager, Allegra Wolff, an officer had come in for some food and on his way out he got stuck.
“Elsa was the first one to run and prance out and help,” Wolff told PEOPLE. “It was amazing.”
Queen Elsa was able to free the vehicle in no time.

Elsa, who in real life is Jason Triplett, an attorney in Boston, purchased the costume last winter because he thought it would be comical to walk around the city in the snow wearing the queen of Arendelle’s outfit.
“It turns out I was correct, it is really funny to walk around Boston in an ‘Elsa’ costume during a snow storm,” he told FOX 61.
So far the video has been viewed over 4 million times.
