Girl gets a year of free ice cream after viral video of selfish boyfriend

Screen shot 2013-03-25 at 1.07.20 PM

Sometimes (OK, all the time) you just want some ice cream.

That’s how Georgia Arnett felt when she was at the Pacers-Magic game with her boyfriend Jake Moran.

Moran, while watching the game, was also enjoying some mint-chip ice cream. A video that went viral shows Arnett reaching over with a tiny plastic spoon to try a bite of her boyfriend’s treat, only to be rejected by him. The girl just wanted some mint chip, can you blame her?

The video shows Moran casually swinging the ice cream away from Arnett. He must have missed the memo that sharing is caring.

The couple appeared on “Good Morning America” on Monday to discuss and laugh about the video.

“I didn’t want her to have my ice cream,” he said.

What was not obvious in the viral video but was later confirmed was that Arnett had her own cup of ice cream just offscreen.

Blue Bell ice cream got such a kick out of this story that the company has agreed to supply Arnett with free ice cream for a year, which, for reasons we cannot understand, Arnett said she will share with her boyfriend.
