In an extraordinary display of product durability, a TikTok user's video showing her Stanley cup, an insulated mug, surviving a car fire has gone viral, leading the brand to offer her a new car.

The user, Danielle, known as @danimarielettering on TikTok, shared a video that has since amassed over 28 million views and 3.3 million likes. The video reveals the aftermath of a car fire, with the interior of the vehicle severely damaged. However, remarkably, the Stanley cup in the car's cup holder appears unscathed, still containing ice.

Danielle's video has sparked widespread attention, with viewers amazed at the cup's resilience. She comments in the video, "Everybody is so concerned if the Stanley spills but what else? It was in a fire yesterday and it still has ice in it."

Offered a brand new car

Responding to the viral sensation, Stanley's global president Terence Reilly stitched Danielle's video on the brand's TikTok account.

Reilly expressed relief that Danielle was safe and announced, "We're gonna send you some Stanleys, but there's one more thing... we'd love to replace your vehicle… yeah all of us at Stanley we'd really like to replace your vehicle." This generous offer, a first for Stanley, further fueled the video's popularity, garnering over five million views.

Stanley, known for its sleek design and long-lasting temperature retention, has gained significant popularity on social media, especially TikTok.

The brand's 40-ounce tumblers, priced between $40 and $50, have become the new "it" portable drinkware, according to Upworthy.

Danielle has since uploaded a follow-up video. Watch it below

“I think that is the best form of humanity,” she says. “As a person who’s gone through most of their life feeling invisible, you have made me feel incredible. And I can't thank you enough. And I just want to say to anybody that maybe feels like that, like you’re not seen or heard…just give it fifteen seconds. Everything might change” she states.
