As the fine young metal fan in this video found out the hard way, frozen swimming pools and fancy dives don’t exactly go together like peas and carrots.
Filmed in the dead of winter by a group of friends who undoubtedly know that what’s about to come only has the potential to be both horrifying and hilarious, the guy in the video you’re about to see is seen in a speedo, striking all sorts of poses before promoting his band Siskill. He visibly takes a deep breath – almost as if he knows this is definitely not his finest idea – before taking a running leap at the frozen swimming pool in front of him and doing a cannonball onto – wait for it – a sheet of solid ice.
Hilarity ensues when both the unfortunate soul and his friends start to laugh uncontrollably, making for one hell of a viral video that’ll make you cringe and wonder if it’s too soon to suggest that he put some ice on that bruise. If you ever feel sad, just remember that there’s a grown man out there that did a cannonball into a frozen swimming pool. Enjoy!
