It's written so well, I'm posting this straight from Mashable, 'The iconic "McLovin" fake ID, cheesy rainbow and all, got a kid arrested.
Daniel Alfredo Burleson, a 20-year-old from Iowa, was arrested on Friday for underage drinking and possession of a fictitious license after police found a fake Hawaiian ID with the name McLovin on it.
It's a reference to the 2007 movieSuperbad —in an effort to lose their virginity before graduating high school, two bumbling teenagers use a fake ID for "McLovin" to buy alcohol for a party. The poorly made Hawaiian driver's license became an icon for fake IDs, and fans can buy recreations on Amazon for as low as $7.
An Iowa City police officer approached the 20-year-old in a bar and asked for his ID, which he refused to provide. Burleson was slurring and held a "beverage containing vodka," theIowa City Press-Citizenreports. When the police took him out of the bar, he showed them his real ID, which showed that he was under 21.
But officers caught a glimpse of his fake Hawaiian ID, which listed McLovin's date of birth as Jun. 3, 1981.
Then the officers — who evidently haven't watchedSuperbad— had a dispatcherrun a searchof the fake ID. Obviously, it failed to turn up a result.
Burleson was charged with public intoxication, possession of alcohol while underage, and possession of a fictitious license, so he's probably Going Through It right now.
At least Seth Rogen, who started writing theSuperbadscript when he was 13 years old, took notice.
