BOSTON, Mass. – Get out your ‘Frozen’ jokes.
Someone wearing an Elsa costume helped free a Boston police van from snow piled up at the side of the street Tuesday night.
The incident took place at The Gallows Bar on Washington Street in Boston as Tuesday’s nor’easter wound down. The video was posted on Facebook by Christopher Haynes. After pushing for a minute or so, the transport van is finally freed from its slushy prison. People inside the bar can be heard cheering Elsa on. One man steps up to help near the end of the ordeal.
Once the truck is on its way, ‘Elsa’ curtseys for the crowd in the bar.
“I bought this costume last year during a snow storm because I thought it would be hilarious to walk around Boston in an ‘Elsa’ costume during a snowstorm,” Elsa (secret identity withheld) told WTIC Tuesday night. “It turns out I was correct, it is really funny to walk around Boston in an ‘Elsa’ costume during a snowstorm.”
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.

“I saw the police paddy wagon started to get stuck and so I just ran outside to help push it out of the snow,” Elsa said, “I really didn’t think it would be a ‘thing.'”
“If any of you know Ellen [Degeneres], I want to come on her show, but only if Adam Rippon is there,” Elsa quipped.
