It might just be the most popular car in the world.

Unless you've been off the grid chances are you've seen the image shared thousands of times.

Good Morning America shared the image shortly after 7 Eyewitness News posted it and it took off.

In an exclusive interview with 7ABC the cars owner, 24-year-old Justin Yelen said he had a few drinks Sunday evening at Hoak's Lakeshore Restaurant  and didn't feel it was responsible to drive home. He had no idea leaving his car parked overnight would become such a hot topic.

#IceCar has been shared by ABC, CNN, Fox News and several other stations nationwide.

Linzie Janis, an ABC News correspondent, says the car is incredible and she just wants to know if there's going to be anything wrong with the car once the snow melts.

Yelen is thinking the same thing. Now we just wait and see.
