For the last few years, Minneapolis resident Tom Grotting has been taking advantage of the area’s brutal winters by setting up a series of frozen pants sculptures to entertain his neighbor and freak out passersby.
The weirdness is created by soaking a pair of pants in water then hanging them outside to let winter do its thing. After posting the results on Facebook, others have gotten into the act, resulting in what could be a new winter tradition alongside making snowmen, scraping your windshield and complaining about the cold only weeks after you complained that it didn’t feel Christmassy because it was too warm.
Happy now? Frozen pants!
