March 20th was the first day of spring, but it seems like the weather in the Northern US and Canada really hasn’t noticed (nothing like a fresh layer of snow when it’s almost April, am I right?) To adequately express my frustration with this unending and horrifying Poehler Vortex winter, I present you with a snowman being blown to bits at 4500fps.
Shot with a NAC HX-1 camera, the snowman is decimated by rapidly expanding gasses, and presented at speeds 150 times slower than your eye normally perceives. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I’m going to grab a sledgehammer and start some snow-smacking of my own. Sorry, Elsa, but this is getting to be a little too much.
