Mimicking Ethan Hunt's stunts? Not 'Mission Impossible' for Mumbai Police
From 'Race-3' to popular sitcom 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S' and teen drama '13 reasons why', Mumbai Police have posted tweets with its own twists to all. The latest one is woven around Tom Cruise's newest film 'Mission: Impossible-Fallout', where they show Ethan Hunt (Cruise's character) riding a bike without a helmet. That was enough for Mumbai Police to roll out a tweet on road safety.
Not an impossible mission for us to penalise you if you are spotted trying these stunts on the roads of Mumbai! That’s the job. No hard feelings. #SafetyIsPossible #WearAHelmet #SayNoToRashDriving pic.twitter.com/BRKx8at7Rl— Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) July 30, 2018
The 13-second video attached to the tweet shows a helmetless Hunt on a bike, ramming into a car and crashing to the ground. The tweet, which has already garnered 27,000 views, carries the message: "Not an impossible mission for us to penalise you if you are spotted trying these stunts on the roads of Mumbai! That's the job. No hard feelings. #SafetyIsPossible #WearAHelmet #SayNoToRashDriving"
While Mumbai Police's tweets always get rousing response, this one actually had more retaliation than praise. People replied by saying, "Can't ride like this in mumbai #potholes makes this 'Mission Impossible'," while another quipped, "Tom cruise still survives that, because there're no manholes unlike India."
Not just trending topics, Mumbai Police are also known for their tweets having a dash of history. One of today's talks about how on a wintery Tuesday in 1957, Bombay Police got a new control room, and how the emergency number 100 was introduced around that time. Another tweet from June 26 spoke of the first woman sub-inspector who joined Bombay Police in 1947.
