Nineteen-year-old Kaitlyn Strom was at the Winstock Music Festival when she thought it would be a good idea to put her head in a truck's oversized exhaust pipe.
A five-second video of rescuers working to free the teenager quickly went viral after being posted on Facebook the following day.
The pipe that "Tailpipe Girl" got her head stuck in was briefly on display at Darwin Tavern.
So the Hutchinson Leader today fills in the gap and provides her answer to the obvious question people have asked since she saw the tailpipe as an invitation at Friday's night's country music festival in Winsted, Minn.: What on earth were you thinking? "So I tried it".
In a tell-all piece, she told Stephen Wiblemo what went through her head before she jammed it into the pipe.
She did, however, cop a citation from the McLeod County Sheriff's Office for underage drinking (the legal drinking age in the U.S. is 21). "A lot of people don't realize how serious it was".
Strom didn't know the owner of the truck, but he was just happy that she turned out OK.
Strom later posted a photo of herself on Facebook holding the sawed off exhaust pipe. "I bet you could fit your head inside of it".
'Yeah I'm the tail pipe girl, whatchu know about it?
