What is Jeep Ducking?
Creator Allison Parliament, hailing from Ontario, Canada, was the visionary behind Duck Duck Jeep. In July 2020 during the outbreak of COVID-19 raging around the world, fear was high and so was intolerance, and after a crazy experience left her yearning to combat the negativity enveloping the world, she took a simple rubber duck, placed it on a Jeep, and got caught red-handed. But from that mischievous moment, kindness began to flourish.
Parliament's first ducking took place with a Jeep she had spotting in the parking lot of where they purchased the ducks. So naturally as she was armed with a sharpie, she grabbed a duck and wrote "Nice Jeep" onto the duck before placing it on the door. The Jeeper had caught her, and they had a laugh about it and thought it needs to be on social media! A quick snapshot and an Instagram post later, complete with the hashtag #duckduckJeep, ignited the spark that led to an extraordinary movement.
As Duck Duck Jeep continues to thrive, it stands as a testament to the power of unity and the impact that a group of dedicated individuals can make on the world—one quack at a time. 🦆🚙
“Strangers have come together with ducks and Jeeps, and I’ve seen the most unlikely friendships,” Parliament said. “At the end of the day, I never thought we’d be here, but people always need a place where they can feel safe. That’s what Duck Duck Jeep is.”
As well as an interview with Allison Parliament herself!
We were lucky to have a quick chat with Allison via Instagram and she is just as cool as you would expect! She says #duckduckjeep is in 86 countries and 263,885 hashtags on Instagram as of September 2023! Way to go!
The rules are simple. Any Jeep can be ducked, not just Wranglers. The whole purpose is to be kind and spread kindness, so get some ducks, create some tags or use a sharpie and #duckduckjeep!
