One TikTok user's viral moment has turned her woeful situation into a happy accident. 

On November 15, Danielle posted a video on TikTok where she rummaged through the remains of her burned-down vehicle. While everything turned to ashes and dust, her Stanley tumbler is seen intact, sitting on top of the cup holder right where she placed it.

"There's even ice in it," Danielle says in the video, as she shakes through her Stanley.

Stanley Responds With A New Car

It was only a matter of time before the video caught the brand's attention, and Danielle was rightfully rewarded for sharing her unusual experience. 

In a delightful turn of events, the official Stanley TikTok account commented on Danielle's viral post, saying, "Just doin' our job. Shoot us a DM! You def need a new one." 

Stanley President Terrence Reilly also responded to the incident with a stitched video, expressing the company's interest in not only giving Danielle more Stanleys but also buying her a new car.

"We've never done this before, and we'll probably never do it again, but we'd love to replace your vehicle," he shared.
