This Woman Turns Absurd 911 Calls Into Funny Animations
Being a 911 dispatcher is a tough job – you have to deal with all sorts of situations, be able to communicate with all types of people, and remain level-headed no matter what. However, there are some occasions when operators receive calls so ridiculous, they can’t tell if the callers are actually for real. And Florida-based TikTok user Sock Puppet Master decided to turn some of them into funny animations.
In a recent interview with Bored Panda, the woman said she started creating animations before Thanksgiving as a way yo make her friends laugh. Then she uploaded a few to her TikTok account, and the videos quickly went viral. “Putting it all together—the drawing, storytelling, and work experience—has been a lot of fun,” said the TikTok user. “I live with my cat and my bird with loved ones all over the US, so this is a great way to stay connected and engaged with the world even in isolation.”
The woman said that she didn’t start with 911 calls in mind. “I was just messing around on YouTube, looking for funny short videos so I could have an excuse to animate without writing my own material, which can be time-consuming,” said the user. “This was just low-hanging fruit…”
