The video swiftly gained viral status across multiple social media platforms, sparking a wave of reactions and discussions. People marvelled at the tumbler's resilience and its ability to maintain temperature amidst such extreme conditions.
Social media buzzed with various responses to the incident. One user speculated, "It is an ad... a free one at that."
Commenting on the incident, another user remarked, "The best comedy writes itself. The best ads create themselves."
Addressing the video, Stanley's President, Terence Reilly, made a public statement via social media. Expressing relief at the owner's safety, Reilly acknowledged the extraordinary endurance of Stanley products. He pledged to send the woman new Stanley tumblers as a gesture of appreciation.

I've seen a lot of comments that we should send you some Stanleys, well we're going to send you some Stanleys, but here's one more thing. We've never done this before and we'll probably never do this again. But we'd love to replace your vehicle."
The incident, coupled with the brand's generous offer, has ignited admiration for Stanley's product resilience.
