Cops Called Out On Cardboard Cutout Of Pillow Mogul

Is this what they mean by snow blindness? Last week, someone called the cops in Minnesota because they thought they saw a man out in the freezing snow with no coat that turned out to be a cardboard cutout. "Officers were called to check on the welfare of an adult male in one of our local neighborhoods standing motionless outside and near a home wearing no coat in the cold and hugging a pillow," police in the town of Jordan wrote Thursday on Facebook. "Officers discovered the adult male in need of possible assistance was actually a cardboard cutout of MyPillow CEO and inventor Mike Lindell." The Jordan police proved their Minnesota niceness by adding, "Those cardboard cutouts sure can look real from a distance and the caller certainly was not wanting to get too close thinking who is this deranged person standing outside in the cold hugging a pillow; always better to call the police." Meanwhile, if you're wondering why a random CEO's life-sized cardboard cutout was hanging out in the first place, Lindell is apparently one of Minnesota's most well-known quirky celebs. He was profiled by theMinneapolis Star-Tribune this past September in a story headlined, "Mike Lindell's Fitful Journey From Crack Addict to MyPillow Magnate." You can also buy Lindell's life-sized cardboard cutouts on the MyPillow website.
