Ice only gets that slippery when there’s a sheen of water on top of it. This means the air temperature is above freezing, so a little bit of salt will go a long way. He’s still going to need a few shakers, but if it was -15C, he’d need about 3 10kg bags for that driveway…

And he posted it from his own security camera.

He needs some percussion to go with the shaker sound.

He’s so nonchalant at the bottom…
You know he’s looking out from under his
lashes,
"anybody see me!?
"Hope not…’
“I must have looked really stupid!”
Then he decided, after viewing,
to take a proactive move
and upload it himself…
smart!

I was hoping that he’d keep going across the street and down the road till we couldn’t see him anymore. To Benny Hill music.

With this one it looks like he’ll continue sliding to the left down the actual street.
“Oh well. I guess i’m headed downtown on the new ice expressway.”

I’m pretty sure, based on other videos that I’ve seen, since he lost both of his shoes, he didn’t survive the fall.

Frame it just slightly differently, and you could imagine him continuing to slide “up” the curvature of a giant ring, to eventually emerge where he started from.
