A man in Minneapolis has been pranking his entire town with...frozen pants?
Minneapolis has been known to get downright miserable once the winter hits. It's long, cold, bitter, and all around the worst.
To try and keep spirits lifted, local resident Tom Grotting has been pranking the entire city for a good laugh. And it's been working!
Grotting has been working off the phrase "freezing our pants off" by actually freezing pants. He soaks jean in water and places them around the city so it looks like they're standing up.
"I mostly do it for my neighbor, Diane," said Grotting. "The winter gets a little long and she doesn't like winter very much so it's mostly entertainment for Diane.
Basically, the idea is to make it look like people have frozen their butts off. Grotting puts the pants all around town and everyone gets a good laugh. Well, mostly everyone.
"The kids hate it," Grotting said. "My daughter is in the band and had a big rehearsal with the trumpet players and she texted me and said, 'Dad, the trumpets saw the pants.'"
What a great way to lighten the mood!
