Instead of savoring some hot porridge on China’s Laba Festival, competitors in Hunan province decided to prove that the cold never bothered them anyway by putting on a charity event that would make the creators of Frozen proud.
In Changsha’s “China’s Best Ice Man Challenge”, two competitors let it go and bravely sat in huge boxes of ice in nothing but their underwear for two and half hours, drawing applause and cheers from an enthusiastic crowd.
If you’re wondering what the hell the point of this contest was, you’ll be happy to learn that the event was centered around raising money for those battling cancer.
This isn’t the first endurance test that Changsha has put on in recent years, in fact it would seem that the city has a thing for sitting on/in ice.
Perhaps next year, Chen Guangbiao will want to participate.
