Police called to check on potentially ‘deranged person’ find cardboard cutout of MyPillow CEO

Weird News

 A Minnesota police department got a good laugh this week after they received a call about a potentially “deranged person” standing outside in the cold.

The Jordan Police Department said officers were called to check on the welfare of a man who was hugging a pillow, standing motionless outside of a home. It was below freezing and he was not wearing a coat. 

Officers said they arrived only to find a pretty realistic cardboard cutout of MyPillow CEO and inventor Michael Lindell. 

“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,” police said on Facebook.

MyPillow is headquartered in Chaska, which is about 15 miles north of Jordan, CNBC reports. 

Lindell, a Minnesota native, got word of the incident and shared an article about it on Twitter.
