We’ve seen some pretty off-the-wall and ingenious snow and ice removal techniques in our day, but this Ohio dad is pretty wild for this one. But, who knows? He must’ve misplaced the snow scraper that day.
Using only duct tape and his young son, the guy created, at least from our estimation, the first ever living, breathing snow removal device. Here’s how the hilarious video came to be, according the man’s wife, who filmed the whole thing.
“We got a lot of snow in Monclova, Ohio,” begins the video’s description. “My husband and son went outside to play in the snow. I asked my husband if he could clean off our vehicles while he was outside. Next thing I know, my husband is yelling into the house asking if we have any duct tape. I meet him at the door with the tape only to find that he is planning to wrap it around my son’s wrists, ankles, and waist so the snow couldn’t get in. I then recorded this video of my husband using our son to push off all the snow. My son had such a blast!”
Now, most people probably wouldn’t enjoy having their bodies completely covered in snow like that, but this kid looked like he was having the time of his life. It’s good to see people enjoying the snow like that, especially considering that the polar vortex that’s been sweeping through a good deal of the northern United States doesn’t appear to be messing around.
Clearly, the way folks are enjoying snow days is changing. Forget sledding, snowball fights, snow angels, or any of those other lame snow-based activities. That stuff’s boring, old news. These days, all kids need to enjoy a snow day is a few trips down a snow-covered front and back windshield.
