An Australian police department warned the public not to drink and drive, but the message was quickly lost in translation thanks to the shockingly attractive cop who was photographed as a part of the campaign.
Following Western Australia’s Labour Day, held on the first weekend of March annually, the Western Australia Police Force shared a message on Facebook encouraging partygoers to be smart about drinking and driving.
“We hope you had a fantastic long weekend WA,” the post read. “Just remember, you still need to drive home! We’re out and about across the state.”
Along with the message, the police department shared a photo of Kalbarri Senior Constable Paul Ellison holding up two breathalyzers in an angle that coincidentally emphasized his bulging biceps.
Within hours, the post went viral, racking up more than 7,000 likes and 5,000 comments within 24 hours.
“I speak on behalf of all the women of Western Australia — please do not ever put your guns away officer,” one user commented.
Another said: “Pretty disrespectful to the uniform. He should take it off. Slowly. To music with a good beat.”
Others noticed he wasn’t wearing a wedding ring.
Ellison has since responded to his viral fame, saying he is flattered by all the attention but hopes it will help spread the word on safe driving around the world.
