It's a bit of a mixed metaphor, but it's somebody playing a duck playing Officer Mike.

See the answer below, though

Which makes way more sense than mine. For starters, a Boston cop wouldn't have sgt. stripes on his cap. And he wouldn't wear a camo hat (I completely missed the camo when looking at the photo on my phone, alas).

Question is not allowed

You must stand and salute the duck soldier without any questions or you are un-American.

Or wait, is this some kind of anatidaen stolen valor situation?

Who knows how deep this thing goes. Clearly deep state action.

Kilroy the BDT Mascot

By on

The duck is the mascot of Boston Duck Tours, his name is Kilroy. He is in camo because of the WWII history of the vehicles.

Photobomb

So it's an advertising campaign photobombing. Well, I guess we could have expected as much.
