Minnesota police called to rescue what turns about to be a cardboard cutout of the MyPillow CEO

JORDAN, Minn. — Police officers in one Minnesota town got a good laugh Thursday.

Someone called for a welfare check on an adult man in one of the local neighborhoods standing motionless outside and near a home wearing no coat in the cold and hugging a pillow.

Keep in mind temperatures are below freezing in Minnesota in February.

When officers arrived on scene, they discovered that the adult male in need of possible assistance was actually a cardboard cutout of MyPillow CEO and inventor Mike Lindell.

The caller wasn't about to go outside and get too close to investigate what they thought was a deranged person standing outside in the cold hugging a pillow, so it was better to call the police.

Those cutouts can be so life-like!

Lindell shared the post to his page, simply captioning it "unreal!"
