If you’ve ever purchased ice in bulk for a trip to the beach or the campground, it’s likely you pulled it out of an ice chest like this:
Gas stations and convenience stores in America often feature such a unit, and sell ice for just a dollar or three per bag, despite the incredible work that was undertaken to get it in your hands. They’re functional, and the I C E lettering (and snow on top of it) frequently looks inviting, but they’re fairly boring overall.
Recently, thanks to a video on the webernets, I learned of the existence of a very different kind of ice machine. That video was just 15 seconds, and you can watch it below.2
The joke in the video was that the kid was expecting the ice to come out of the chute, and he got tricked.3 That’s mildly amusing, sure. But the much, much, much funnier thing to me is that the machine is singing a song. A song about ice!
🎶 It’s too hot Get some ice Need a cool drink Just chill it nice Got me a big old bag of ice This hot deal’s so cool It’s twice as nice. 🎶
