Springtime isn’t too far away, but for many folks around the country, the cold weather is still making it difficult to get things done. That includes otherwise simple tasks, like washing the car. However, for the Hummer H2 in this video, even ambient temperatures of negative 40 won’t stop the owners from attempting to give their ride a spray down.
Coming to us from the folks at Garage 54, this video asks a simple question – what happens when you wash a car in negative 40 degree weather? Inspired by a picture popularized on the Internet that shows a car getting washed in freezing temperatures, the video hosts decide to find out.
First things first – get some foam on the Hummer H2. Unfortunately, the local self-service car washers are closed for the winter, so the hosts decide to break out the hoses and do it themselves.
With that, the foam gun is deployed, and a layer of pink foam is applied to the Hummer H2 body panels. The first pass quickly freezes to the metal, making it look like the Garage 54 folks are painting the car, rather than washing it.
After circling the SUV a few times with the foam gun, the Hummer H2 starts to look, well, kinda weird. The blocky proportions take on a spongy, bubbly new appearance. Naturally, the video hosts aren’t satisfied, and decide to continue with the spray, adding further layers of foam until the entire vehicle looks like it was made from cotton candy.
At this point, finding a way into the vehicle is impossible, given the frozen foam has completely sealed up the doors and door handles. In response, the hosts grab a scraper and start to chisel their way in.
Finally, with the door opened and the windows exposed, the Hummer H2 is ready to roll out, bringing its pink fluffiness out to the public at large.
