How do you pay a $137 ticket in style? One man did it with 137 dollar bills folded into origami pigs.

The man, who goes by the YouTube moniker "Bacon Moose, posted a video Tuesday that shows him bringing the intricately-folded swine into municipal court in two Dunkin Donuts boxes.

"I got this ticket in a town where the cops (and absurd redlight cameras) are pretty much a money trap and that's it," he explained in the video description. "I decided to pay in an appropriate manner."

The cashier is not impressed, asking "What is that?" and refusing to take the folded money unless the man unfolds it himself, The Huffington Post reported.

After some awkward back-and-forth, a police officer makes him unfold all the bills.

But he also gives the prankster some props.

"That's pretty cool and that took a lot of time. Little piggies in a donut box. I got it, I got it," the officer says, laughing as he snaps a picture of the boxes with his phone.

It took Bacon Moose about six hours to create the 137 origami pigs. But only minutes to unfold them.
