Offbeat Video

A bearded man withstood freezing temperatures to see how much of his beard would freeze on his face.

When Jake Fischer, 27, woke up on a cold January morning in Minnesota, he decided to go out into the great outdoors and endure the cold.

Recording himself over the course of two hours in freezing -26C temperatures, hairy Jake noticed how his thick beard and long hair began freezing on his face.

Jake said: “Surprisingly my face wasn’t that cold. The only thing that was numb was my right thumb for some reason.

“It affected my vision with all the ice on my eyelashes and my random numb thumb for tapping my screen. And my phone actually died because of the cold right before I took my last clip.
