The Philly Police Department Turned That 1991 Sizzler Commercial Into A Recruiting Video

As someone who encounters the weirdest crap on the internet on a daily basis, I’m even not sure what to make of this. This video popped up on the Philadelphia Police Department’s official YouTube account yesterday (coincidentally 4/20), which takes that bizarre, nearly five minute long Sizzler ad that went viral earlier this month and turns it into some kind of recruiting video that’s more MST3K than it is recruiting video. Sample dialogue includes: “Whoa, that was the woman who was just looking at the sundae! *chuckle* She’s looking at the guy the same way.”

I’m honestly flummoxed. All I know is that Philly cop PPD Joe Murray must have somehow been involved in this, and I’ve never been prouder of my fair city. If the Philly Police are looking at re-branding, I’ve got the perfect slogan for them. The Philadelphia Police Department: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

UPDATE: Detective Murray tells me that this was the work of PPD Eric Gripp. Excellent work!
