If only every traffic stop resulted in tickets to a concert in New York City.
That's what 17-year-old Audra Daniloff received when she was pulled over on her way to school in Wisconsin last month, according to reports. The teen's father, Marc, had coordinated with the Saukville Police Department to surprise Audra with a trip to see her favorite band, Timeflies.
"I've got some good news, and I've got some bad news for you," the officer said after explaining he had pulled Audra over for rolling through a stop sign. "The bad news first is that I'm giving you two tickets, all right? The good news is that they're probably not the tickets you expect me to give you, OK?"
He then handed over a plane ticket to New York City and another to the concert, where she would meet members of the band. As the description below the YouTube video states: "Bad Dad or Good Dad? The look on her face should help you decide."
It's been a rough few months for Audra and her family. The teen has a rare condition that almost cost her her life, the girl's father explained to local media outlet FOX6 News. For nearly 60 days, she was under the care of staff at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, where she continues to receive treatment.
The hospital recently shared a story about Audra's surprise on its Facebook page and wished the teen "all the best."
The report also caught the eye of the band, which retweeted the news from the @Timeflies account.
So, what did Audra think of her time with the duo?
"Honestly, these guys are the most genuine people I've ever met," Audra told Today.com. "They care so much about their fans. They speak to me, all their songs. I can't pick a favorite, because they have a song that [works] for every emotion that I have."
We'll say this: It's going to be really hard to top this gift next year.
