Sadly, This Beto O'Rourke Funko Pop Isn't Real

Reddit is making hearts skip again.



The image of a Beto O'Rourke Funko Pop doll complete with a Whataburger skate board popped up on the social media site early last night as shared by user txfan4549.

Sadly, Triple-meat Liberals will have to wait a little longer for a Beto Pop as commenter ShadowD24 pointed out that it's definitely not a real promotion.

"I work for Whataburger can confirm this is false. Sadly enough, I am totally down for this to happen but feel like to much of the client base would have some kind of heart attacks over this," ShadowD24 wrote.

The image, created by Dallas-based designer Mark Fallis (also responsible for the Shiner Whataburger mockup shared earlier this year), is already making the rounds on Instagram as well.

Fallis said a trip to Whataburger inspired him to make the mock-up, which took a few hours to compete and features a Photoshop rendition of O'Rourke built from five different Funko Pop figurines. 

Regardless of its authenticity, the image riffs on O'Rourke's penchant for late-night Whataburger and the stores' smooth AF parking lots.
