A bizarre viral challenge has seen people leave their frozen jeans standing up outside in the snow.
Things have been undeniably chilly in some parts of the United States in recent weeks, but that hasn't stopped people from seeing the positive side as evidenced by this rather peculiar viral trend.
The 'frozen pants' movement began back in 2013 in Minneapolis when Tom Grotting started freezing pairs of wet jeans outside in freezing temperatures and then posing them around his neighborhood.
Since then, hundreds of others have gotten in on the act, resulting in countless pairs of disembodied pants being left standing around parks, street corners and outside buildings.
Last month, Grotting and his brother left some outside St. Olaf College's new hockey arena.
"It was cold as cold gets that morning and I thought it would be a good opportunity to freeze some pants, of course, so I brought a couple of pairs of big daddys in a bucket," he told Huffington Post.
"We soaked 'em up and draped them over the signs out front and went to dinner. When we came back, the pants were hard as a rock and the game was starting so we had to get busy."
Some more examples of frozen pants can be viewed in the video below.
