SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - It's a cartoon explaining Utah's liquor laws and it's becoming a big hit on Facebook.
It shows a waitress trying to explain our sometimes confusing laws to a befuddled out-of-town skier.
These two cartoon characters are now getting some serious face time on Facebook.
Their video is being posted by those who find Utah's liquor laws frustrating.
It is both funny and, perhaps, a bit painful to watch.
It's set at the end of an awesome Utah skiing day.
All this visitor wants is a nice, warm drink.
But much to his confusion and disappointment, he's told,
Server: "You can only have hot spiced wine on the other side of the room. I can only serve beer here."
Through computer animation, the quirks of Utah's liquor laws are explained in 3 and a half minutes.
Some will find it funny, even if the skier does not,
Skier: “This beer tastes watery. Do you water down your beer?”
Server: “No. It is 3.2 beer. All beer in Utah is 3.2 beer."
The skier then wants his son to join him.
But the server tells him children can't be in a Utah tavern only in a nearby restaurant.
Skier: “My son can be in the area with wine and hard liquor but not in the area with watered down beer?”
Fed up, the skier says he will go to the state liquor store to get his booze there.
But the waitress tells him they have closed the nearest one - the one on Main Street - in order to save money.
Skier: "How much did they save?”
Server: “$220,000 dollars per year.”
Skier: “Well, what was the gross income of the store?"
Server: "2.2 million dollars."
Skier: "This is all crazy."
Eventually, the skier’s animation outrage boils over.
He leaves the bar and, perhaps, even the state,
Skier: “How can you stand to live here? I am skiing Colorado next time."
She waves goodbye.
Now, this cartoon was done on a website, xtranormal, where you can write your own dialogue.
Clearly, whoever did this is very familiar with Utah liquor laws.
