Normally when the police bang on the door to respond to a complaint, they're understandably not the friendliest of people - they've got official business to do, we get it.
But it seems not every cop is all work and no play, as proven by the dudes that rocked up at someone's house to deal with a noise complaint, only to end up playing Super Smash Bros. with them.
Jovante M Williams took to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter on Friday to explain what had happened, writing: "So neighbours called the cops on us and now we fighting them... In Smash Bros."
He told Yahoo that he had arrived at his friends' apartment at the same time the police were arriving.
"At my friends' apartment, there's been a couple of noise complaints going on, from the same people," Jovante said.
"Lately, we've been playing our games on mute; we don't want to bother anyone."
He said that he and his friends weren't 'trouble', asserting that they're just adults who sometimes drink beer - no dramas from us on that one.
The group had been playing Nintendo game Super Smash Bros. when the cops arrived at their door, which was when Jovante and his friends tried to tell them they were 'just playing'.
At that point one officer then asked what it was they were playing.
Jovante continued: "I'm like, 'Y'all wanna play Smash?!' And two of them literally raised their hand and walked up. They're like, 'How do you jump?' They were acting; one of them was playing Pikachu!"
He added: "Instead of something negative ... it was something wholesome."
Social media users had nothing but praise for the hilarious turn of events, with one referring to it as the 'coolest story' they'd read all week and another saying it was the 'best thing EVER'.
One person tweeted: "This is how all courts in the future should settle cases. You have to do a 1v1 final destination against the judge."
Another wrote: "Should of knocked at the neighbours and asked if they wanted to join."
Someone else said: "Smash Bros brings the bros together."
A fourth added: "Good on those cops for being chill and playing some games, merry Christmas all."
