In a recent viral video, Prince Harry cuts an interview short to chase down what sounds like an ice cream truck, reminding us all that even the priorities of royalty are pretty much the same as everyone else.
In the video, which is making viral rounds on Reddit, a camo-clad Prince Harry is giving an interview in the middle of Camp Bastion in Afghanistan. At about the halfway-point, you see some soldiers running around in the background, and Prince Harry looks over his shoulder, hearing what sounds like the all-too-familiar call of an ice cream truck.
Prince Harry rips off his microphone and ditches the interview with some haste.
Now if you’re one of the two people new to the internet who can’t tell when a video has been over-dubbed, I hate to break it to you, but the video is a fake. As much as we’d like to believe that a camo-painted ice cream truck rolls in and out of a highly-protected military base once in a blue moon causing a uniformed frenzy the likes of which USO Playboy Bunnies cannot command, it is simply not so.
The original footage, posted to The Telegraph, shows Prince Harry cutting the interview short because his Apache helicopter was scrambled on an urgent mission. What’s more, when the prince came back, he confirmed that he had killed Taliban insurgents that day. Just another day for freedom and democracy, right?
So we put both Prince Harry videos below. Pick your favorite: Is Prince Harry an ice cream-obsessed 4-year-old or kind of a bad ass for ditching the interview to go get some Taliban?
The cut-off happens around the 0:30 second mark.
