A man has left Twitter users both confused and impressed with a “brilliant” hack involving frozen jeans that could save them a parking spot.
On Feb. 6, Adam Selzer shared photos of frozen jeans — yes, you read that right — standing upright in various places in the West Ridge neighborhood of Chicago.
“Polar vortex fun: pants with nobody inside them!” Selzer tweeted. “Soak a pair, put outside. In about 20 minutes, you can form them to shape, and in another 20 they’re solid.”
Selzer also shared a photo of two pairs of pants standing in a no parking zone, potentially giving users an ingenious way of reserving a space.
Unsurprisingly, the images have become a hit on Twitter, where many people couldn’t help but take note of Selzer’s creativity.
“Brilliant!” one person simply tweeted in response.
“This is adorable and gave me a big laugh,” another added. “Thank you!”
“Very funny,” a third simply quipped.
In an interview with WBBM-TV, Selzer, a Chicago tour guide, revealed that he actually hasn’t tried reserving a parking spot by placing a pair of frozen jeans there — he’s only placed the jeans in random places so he can take photos. And that’s not all — the jokester also has bigger plans in store as long as the weather in Chicago is freezing.
“The one thing I tried this time that I haven’t before is I also froze a couple of shirts, so we’ll see if this works,” he said.
