Yesterday, we introduced you to Courtney Barnes, who became an overnight sensation after his eyewitness account of a local police chase went viral.
The WLBT news report has now been viewed nearly 8.5 million times on Facebook due to Barnes’ colorful commentary and appearance.
One of his most quotable quotes describes how he came upon the accident. In his own words:
“Well, ma’am. I was going to buy me a piece of a burger from Burger King. And I just stopped right in the middle because my hunger just went away!”
Well, Burger King has jumped on the bandwagon and posted a hilarious response on the company Instagram account. Ch-ch-check it out (below):

This is definitely corporate America getting it right, unlike that time Best Buy posted that totally inappropriate Serial tweet. You know that social media manager totally got into trouble!
Speaking of trouble, Courtney’s in a bit of his own, since the cops are now looking for him.
Oh well, he’ll always have his 15 minutes of fame…
