A car made out of snow is getting a lot of attention in Nebraska; it even got the attention of a Nebraska State Patrol officer who issued it a parking ticket –sort of. After the weekend snow in Chadron, Nebraska, 43-year old Jason Blundell and his two teenage children shoveled his and neighboring driveways into a large pile of snow in the street in front of their home. Using their garaged 1967 Ford Mustang GTA as a model, the trio spent about 5 hours using assorted tools to sculpt a snow replica into their snow pile.
The snow sculpture is so realistic looking that at first glance, many people think it’s simply a Ford Mustang encased in snow. Nebraska State Patrol Sgt. Mick Downing noticed the car too. In a funny made-for-social-media-bit that has since gone viral, Downing filmed himself leaving a pretend tow notice on the car’s windshield. The video, posted to the patrol’s social media channels, exploded online, shared more than 200,000 times on Facebook. Even the hashtag “#SnowPony” used by the officer took off.
