This Buc-ee’s Sign Shockingly Popped Up Inside A Neighborhood
You wake up, shower, dress, down a cup of coffee, start the car, pull out of the driveway, and see a big "COMING SOON!!!" sign with the familiar Buc-ee's beaver on it. Right there in your neighborhood. What's your first reaction...shock? Horror? Excitement? Confession? I'm pretty sure it would be a mix of all of these.
So imagine what it was like for the residents in the Highland Park area of the Dallas metroplex when they saw this big "COMING SOON!!!" sign earlier this week. See, Highland Park isn't just a regular residential row of houses. This is home to multiple celebrities, pro athletes, and where Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones lives. So for those people this idea had to be a massive shock.
Now both Buc-ee's and developers in Highland Park have stated this isn't a real sign, and that it was nothing more than a prank. Buc-ee's does have DFW locations, as well as stops all across Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Additional locations are currently under development in Colorado, Mississippi, and Missouri. None in Louisiana (still).
This isn't the first time we've seen some fake Buc-ee's attempts though. A few years ago, a Texas resident Tweeted out a photo of a counterfeit Buc-ee's in the Middle East.
But is this what is next for the Buc-ee's craze? Fake signs to stir up hype and concern? Could you imagine the attention a "COMING SOON!!!" Buc-ee's sign would draw in Shreveport or Bossier? It worked in DFW, and they already HAVE Buc-ee's. So I guess you should get ready, because I expect to see more of this now that it went viral. I mean, the online memes have already started...
The real punchline here is that Louisiana still doesn't have a Buc-ee's. We have to laugh to hide the sadness.
