On March 15th, TikToker @quiicb17 posted a video of a man at Whataburger who asked a group of women off-camera, "I ain't fresh?" One woman is heard replying, "At all" before she bursts into laughter.

Here's a breakdown of the man's outfit; a blue-and-white Polo Ralph Lauren shirt, extremely ironed and starched jeans, and clean blue-and-white New Balance sneakers. In his hands were two large Whataburger sodas, rounding off the casual fit.
