Here is How the Internet Totally Reunited a Mexican Woman with Her Stolen Pickup Truck

The Internet is a cruel place where everything, like everything, is fair game for jokes and mockery. Zaira Salazar Medina learned this the hard way when she asked the Internet to help her find her stolen truck with a badly drawn picture. But the Internet’s lack of chill actually ended up helping her…

It all started when Zaira Salazar Medina made this plea via social media to track down her stolen pickup.

Translation: “Yesterday, at the Hector Espino market, someone stole a 1991 Nissan pick up with the plate number VB52780. The car is grey with a black roof. If you see it, please call me 6622214393. I don’t have photos but I have this drawing.”

Silly her for thinking that the Internet would sympathize and help her in a time of need.

It didn’t take long for the Internet to act as only the Internet can… with jokes.

Soon everyone with a social media account and access to photo editing started to “spot” the truck everywhere.

Seriously… everywhere.

The truck had some great times, like when it delivered a bed full of pizza.

It even became an emoji!

Don’t lie. You’d totally use that emoji.

Then, because the image became so viral, someone actually recognized it and reported it.

Everyone following the story was like:

Who would have ever guessed a crude drawing posted to Facebook would actually lead to the truck being recovered and returned?

And the world discovered that the truck DID look like the drawing.

Seems like Salazar has a hidden talent, no?

But that’s not the end of the story.

After her story and picture went viral, Chevrolet Monclova of Mexico had a special contest just for Zaira Salazar.

If she could get 1 million likes on the video above, the car dealership would give her a new truck.

She reached her goal way before the Dec. 23 deadline.

El momento justo en el que la publicación logró superar el millón de “likes”
¡¡¡Felicidades Zaira!!!

And Chevrolet Monclova kept their word and gave her a brand new truck.

As for her old truck, rumor has it that it’s following it’s dream to be a race car.
