A 19 year-old girl got her head stuck in a tailpipe after getting too drunk this past weekend at the Winstock Country Music Festival in Minnesota. There isn’t really a subtle way to introduce that. I imagine the conversation that led to this insane scene went something like this: “Wow that’s a huge tailpipe. I bet you could fit your head inside of it.” “No, I don’t think so.” This young woman’s courage is both frightening and admirable.
The local NBC-affiliated news station KARE reports that the Winsted Fire Department helped remove her head from the pipe with a power saw on the first night of the fest, which featured artists like Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert. She was apparently escorted off the grounds following the extraction. A Facebook video of the ordeal has been viewed over 2 million times. Later, Pipe Girl posted, “Yes, I’m the tail pipe girl, whatchu know about it?” Could she be the next Bhad Bhabie? Watch the video below.
Pipe Girl, whose real name is Kaitlyn Strom of Litchfield, tells the Hutchinson Leader she learned a valuable lesson: “to not stick my head in a tailpipe.”
She also says the owner of the exhaust pipe isn’t even making her pay for the damage:
He was wonderful. I remember getting my head unstuck, and I just looked at him and apologized, and he said, ‘No, I’m just glad you’re OK. Don’t worry about it.’ He has already fixed his exhaust and is going to be working on that. I did not have to pay for anything like that, because he was absolutely wonderful.
Pipe Girl says she may not attend Winstock next year.
