A woman claims that her Stanley cup not only survived a car fire, but also still had ice left inside.
US-based Danielle Marie Lettering posted a TikTok on Wednesday that displayed the aftermath of the accident and despite her KIA having a tremendous amount of debris all around, her copper-colored Stanley stayed completely intact.
In her video, she shook her 40 ounce-sized Adventure Quencher H2.0 Flowstate Tumblr to prove to her followers that regardless of the melted car parts surrounding the cup, the ice in the Stanley remained solid.
Commenters were left in complete disbelief at Danielle’s discovery and wrote: ‘Now this is good marketing for Stanley.’

Stanley’s site claims that cool beverages will remain cold for 11 hours and ice will stay intact for two days.
The company first began in 1913 and and its slogan is ‘built for life.’
American physicist William Stanley Jr. invented the vacuum bottle.
