In the early morning of July 20, a man in Queens stumbled across a disturbing and unnatural scene.

There was a “pristine In-N-Out Double-Double lying face up” by his bus stop on Sutphin Boulevard in Jamaica, Queens.

The nearest In-N-Out being in Texas, the man was understandably alarmed – and the people of the Internet agreed. Was this a brilliant marketing ploy from In-N-Out headquarters? Are we actually all connected to “The Matrix”? Or did the burger just fall off the back of one of In-N-Out’s hirable event trucks?

The mystery is now solved (or so it seems). A high school senior from Queens ordered a few burgers that would last her red-eye flight from San Diego to New York – but the bag burst open as she was running to catch her early-morning bus back home.
