If you live anywhere in the cold-weather regions of the United States, you know that we’re going through a major cold patch right now. Temperatures have dropped to below-freezing, snow and rain have made travel dangerous, and kids are outside building all sorts of snow creations.
Minnesota principal Nathan Ziegler, however, has decided to use the freezing cold weather to try a bunch of frigid experiments in a series of YouTube videos he’s dubbed “Minnesota Cold.” He’s done everything from breaking a frozen T-shirt to sledding on a frozen towel, several of which have gone viral on the Internet.
Despite having 12 previous “Minnesota Cold” videos, his latest might be his best of all. It has already amassed a huge number of views on YouTube and has been featured on Good Morning America, the Weather Channel, and USA Today.
With temperatures below zero in Minnesota, Ziegler set up his cameras, bundled up, and grabbed the garden hose to create two layers of ice on his backyard trampoline. Once he knows it’s frozen solid, he stands on the side of the trampoline and does a backyard swan dive onto the ice-covered apparatus. The results? AMAZING!
Aided by a multi-camera setup and a clever use of slow-motion, Ziegler’s video captures the awe and wonder of seeing the icy layers break into millions of tiny pieces under his falling body. It’s one of the coolest things we’ve ever seen and instantly made us want to watch the rest of his cold-weather experiments.
