Central New York Woman Has A Laugh As She Finds Her Jeep “Ducked” in New Hartford
Hamilton resident Jamie Broedel was at Planet Fitness in New Hartford to start her morning on Wednesday. As she arrived back to her orange Jeep Renegade after her visit, she saw something on her door handle and got nervous. What was it?
A rubber duck.
"I couldn't exactly see what it was as I left the building but I saw something was there and got nervous," Broedel said. "But as I got closer, I saw that it was a rubber duck and was extremely confused what was going on."
Attached to the pink rubber duck was at tag that said "Nice Jeep" and a QR code that led to a website that said, "Congratulations, you've been ducked! #GotDucked."
Duck Duck Jeeps is a community of Jeep owners looking to make people smile in communities by "ducking" other Jeep owners. To duck a Jeep, you buy a small rubber duck, write a message and put it on a Jeep.

"I actually ended up ordering some ducks on the website so I can duck other people in the area too! It's the cutest little duck ever, it made my day and I can't wait to be able to do it to someone else," Broedel said.
The Jeep Ducking craze is now popular in the U.S., but according to the Massachusetts-based Taunton Daily Gazette, it was started in Ontario by Allison Parliament in Canada.
