A Texas couple is using the documentary "Tiger King" to connect with delivery drivers during the current coronavirus pandemic.
Tim and Agata Scott of Austin are fans of the popular new show that explores the controversial world of big cat zookeeping.
Since the parents of two have been working remotely following the stay-at-home order, they've been frequently ordering packages from Amazon.
Tim Scott, a professor at the University of Texas, told "GMA" he and his wife came up with a way to engage with postal workers by asking, "Did Carole Baskin kill her husband?"
"I had seen other people meme-ing "Tiger King" and I figured it was one of the easiest things to connect on," Tim Scott said. "We definitely binge-watched it I think maybe in a day and a half."
"Each episode was more bonkers," he added. "My favorite pastime time was seeing my wife's faces. She was open-jawed through all of it."
In the series, there's a theory suggesting that Carole Baskin, the owner of Big Cat Rescue, killed her husband and fed him to her tigers.

The Scotts put notes on their door encouraging deliverers to leave packages in the spot which signifies whether or not they believe Baskin committed the theorized crime.
Baskin has repeatedly and publicly denied any involvement with her husband's disappearance.
Tim Scott tweeted a photo of his front porch that garnered 423,000 likes and 55,000 retweets.
The Scotts hope to switch up the question in the near future.
Baskin’s first husband, Jack Donald Lewis, was last seen Aug. 18, 1997.
Hillsborough Circuit Judge Susan Sexton declared Don Lewis deceased on Aug. 19, 2002, five years from the date of his disappearance, the Hillsborough County Clerk's Office confirmed to "GMA."
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate the circumstances around Lewis' disappearance to determine if anything criminal occurred and no one has been ruled in or out as a potential person of interest, the HCSO told “GMA."
The HCSO is encouraging the public to send in any information that can help solve the Lewis case. To call in a tip, dial (813)-247-8200.
Since @netflix and #Covid19 #Quarantine has made #TigerKing all the rage, I figured it was a good time to ask for new leads. #CaroleBaskin #DonLewis #Netflix #Tiger #BigCatRescue #JoeExotic #TigerKingNetflix #HCSO pic.twitter.com/LHoJcBZVOI— Chad Chronister (@ChadChronister) March 30, 2020
In a post updated March 31, Baskin blogged on Big Cat Rescue’s website, expressing her disappointment with the “Tiger King” series and its “sole goal of being as salacious and sensational as possible to draw viewers.”
“As part of that, it has a segment devoted to suggesting, with lies and innuendos from people who are not credible, that I had a role in the disappearance of my husband Don in 1997,” the website says. “The series presents this without any regard for the truth or in most cases even giving me an opportunity before publication to rebut the absurd claims. They did not care about truth. The unsavory lies are better for getting viewers.”
When the docuseries first aired, Big Cat Rescue tweeted that Baskin "vehemently denies she played a part in her husband's alleged death."
“Don was not easy to live with and like most couples, we had our moments," Baskin wrote on her blog. "But I never threatened him and I certainly had nothing to do with his disappearance. When he disappeared, I did everything I could to assist the police."
