A video of a woman mocking notorious conspiracy theorist Eve Black at a Lang Lang checkpoint has gone viral.
Levina Brown was on her way home to Loch after some essential shopping, when she decided to film her checkpoint interaction.
Everything in the video – including a wide brim hat – was similar to Eve Black’s Bunyip checkpoint clip, but instead of pushing a Covid conspiracy, Ms Brown was instead… compliant.
“This is to show all the Karen’s and the Eve’s how this is really done,” Ms Brown said in the video, as she neared the flashing lights.
“Oh god give me strength … give me strength so I’m not a f***wit like all the others,” she said, as to mock Eve Black’s viral video.
When stopped by an officer, Ms Brown handed over her license and explained where she was headed and where she had been before being given the green light to continue on through.
“Oh my god, I can’t believe I just did that … I did the right f*****g thing and look how easy it was,” she said, as she drove from the checkpoint.
The footage has since been viewed over 800,000 times and has been shared by more than 14,000 people.
“It’s just blown up, I definitely wasn’t expecting this,” Ms Brown told the Gazette.
“I didn’t post this for my 15 minutes of fame, I originally only posted it to my friends, but I think the majority of people that have viewed it have seen the humour.”
Ms Brown said the footage was inspired by the recent flurry of online footage from anti-maskers and Covid deniers.
“Everyday it’s just doom and gloom, so when you see people like Eve, doing what they’re doing for s***s and giggles to prove a point, I thought that I’d just take the mickey out of her,” she laughed.
“This isn’t a game, it’s not about how many can get through a checkpoint. Just grow up, put other people first and wear a mask.
“These cops don’t want to be standing there in the freezing cold. They’ve had enough, they’re tired and they definitely don’t want to deal with the s**t.”
Ms Brown said Eve Black’s arrest was “the best news since sliced bread”.
“We’re all in this together, so just do the right thing and help to stop the bloody spread of it,” she said.
