So much questions come to my mind when looking at this photo. The shot, posted on Imgur, was seen over a million times in just a day.
So, we have a snowy sidewalk in Minneapolis with a pair of pants stuck in the snow. We don't need to be a genius to figure out how this works, it's more the why that disturbs me.
All you need to do in order to freeze pants like that is cold weather (like freezing cold), wet pants and something or someone hanging it in the air waiting for the pants to freeze in place.
