Minnesota Man Freezes Pants All Over Town

Minnesota Man Freezes Pants All Over Town

Kaleena Madruga

What would you do if you were driving through a town and you saw empty pants just standing there? If you are anything like me, you would be beyond befuddled.

The reason behind this customary illusion is actually altruistic. Tom Grotting, a 61-year-old businessman, told ABC news, “I mostly do it for my neighbor, Diane. The winter gets a little long and she doesn’t like winter very much so it’s mostly entertainment for Diane.”

The trend then made it ways to Facebook and soon Tom became iconic with his frozen pants. How does he get them to freeze? He drenches the pants in water and allows them to dry in the freezing cold. He has to contort them as they freeze to take the shapes he wants.

Tom’s pants have been photographed having coffee and chilling next to the parking meters. What started out as a gesture to cheer up his neighbor is now a trend in the state. People from outside of his neighborhood are erecting frozen pants about town.

Creepy, but hilarious! I am sure Diane appreciates his effort.
