The Central Indiana couple at the center of a viral video sat down with Fox 59 to share what was going on when they were caught fighting over an ice cream cone.
Jake Moran attended the Pacers game Tuesday night where he was filmed pulling his mint chocolate chip ice cream cone away from his girlfriend Georgia Arnett twice.
Little did the couple know their small lovers quarrel was being watched by everyone on TV and then would go viral on the internet.
“It’s funny, because to us it wasn’t anything,” said Moran who said he was celebrating his 19th birthday at the game in Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
“Comes halftime and we get up and go looking for churros. Didn’t find the churros so we got ice cream instead,” he explained. “We got into a disagreement about something and I was just like, thinking to myself, ‘I’m gonna get her, she won’t be able to get any of my ice cream.’ And I have great peripheral vision so anytime she went to go get it, I could just easily swing it away.”
Moran got a lot of heat for his cold antic, so he was eager to clear his name to Fox 59.
“The thing is she also had her own ice cream,” he said. “And when she got tired of her butter pecan, she figured she’d take her swipe of mine.”
What makes it worse, Arnett said she bought Moran the ice cream, but she forgave him and thought the whole video was funny.
“I love him. I mean I forgive him for not giving me any mint chip. It’s ok. He’ll think twice next time,” she said.
The couple will join Fox 59 Morning News live in studio Friday morning.
