The holiday spirit is infectious, it seems, even for police officers. And, after watching this video, we're quite sure that the driver and passenger of the Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG are thankful that the Thanksgiving spirit spread long and far enough to cover a speeding ticket in exchange for a blip of the throttle.

After pulling the two men over, the unnamed police officer, who appears to be writing the ticket as he's making conversation, asks the driver what kind of car he's driving. After finding out what it is, what it's powered by and how expensive it is, he casually tells the in-car duo to slow down and drive safely... but not before opining that he's underpaid by the police force.

Now that the video is going viral (it had been on YouTube, but has since been removed by the user), we're curious as to whether or not the officer will be reprimanded for being so lenient or saying anything negative about his job. You'll have to click on over to The Mirror in the UK to see the the footage, but feel free to come back and let us know in the Comments whether you think this is just a cop being cool on Thanksgiving (that'd be our vote) or if he should have ticketed the driver.
