And PEOPLE can reveal “Elsa” is, in fact, Jason Triplett, 37, an attorney from Boston, who says the escapade was the result of cabin fever brought on by the blizzard.
Playing down his heroic feat, Triplett says his fame will be fleeting as snow on a hot day.
“Everyone will be over it by noon,” Triplett tells PEOPLE. “But if this is my 15 minutes, I would like to leverage it to meet Adam Rippon.”
Olympian Rippon will no doubt be impressed with Triplett’s strength and dedication to his costume. The bar’s guests were certainly wowed cheering him on by, yelling “Come on, Elsa! The girl we didn’t deserve” and “Let Him Go.”
As for how the police got themselves in the predicament, the trendy eatery’s manager, Allegra Wolff, explains: “A police officer came in for some burgers and left, but got stuck in the snow.”
“We were super busy, and Elsa and some of her friends came in and were dancing around having cocktails,” Wolff says. “Elsa was the first one to run and prance out and help. It was amazing. He started pushing with all his might, and finally got the car unstuck.”
