I love winter. I love scarves and gloves and hot chocolate and walks in the snow. But I hate driving in the winter. The roads are terrifying and I spend the whole season white knuckling the steering wheel. But there is a man who is taking control of the conditions and using them to his advantage. Just like Elsa in Frozen, a man in Kostanay, Kazakhstan took control of the black-ice curse that is winter and was seen ice skating down the road, despite the cars that were attempting to use the road as well.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I suggest that you do not try this at home, as in my totally unprofessional opinion, this is extremely dangerous. But just like the gentleman who filmed the moment, you can’t help but laugh.
Viral Elsa Man is not the first person to try this with video evidence though! Check out this guy who a couple of years ago decided to take to the ice storm streets of Michigan.
Or this video where a handful of tiny children are more brave than me, a 23 year-old grown woman doing her very best.
I’m not doing a great job of discouraging you from trying this, am I? As fun (and awesome and hilarious) as it might look, skating on black ice is crazy dangerous and you really shouldn’t try it yourself. This is one idea to which we have just one thing to say: “Let It Go.”
