As USA fights Polar Vortex 2019, social media is abuzz with the perfect memes and challenges and the one challenge that has got everyone hooked is the Freezing Pants Challenge! Take a look

Nowadays, social media memes are the biggest trend- be it film posters, movie dialogues or red carpet appearances, Twitterverse doesn’t spare anyone. And today, the Polar Vortex has given rise to countless social media trends, memes and challenges. From frozen ghosts to dressing up logos on cars, these Polar Vortex memes are going viral and for starters, social media is abuzz with the ‘Frozen Pants Challenge’. As the USA Midwest battles Polar Vortex, with temperatures plummeting to as low as minus 30 degrees, people residing in the Polar Vortex-hit cities have come up with the Frozen Pants challenge.

As the name suggests, the Frozen Pants Challenge talks about frozen pants because when people step out in the biting cold weather, their trousers are instantly frozen. As several people have tried this challenge and we must say, the results are unique and funny AF. From pants lined in a queue, to hoodies and jeans

frozen resembling headless figures playing ice-hockey, the Frozen Pants challenge has got everyone excited and willing to participate. In one such picture that is going viral on social media, we have a police uniform frozen next to the police car and looks like this challenge has got thumbs up from the cops too. Isn’t that cool? 

For all those who don’t know, the Polar Vortex has left parts of USA covered entirely in snow and over the past few weeks, Polar Vortex has given rise to various social-media trends and crazy challenges. We are sure that all of us have seen the infamous video wherein water turns into ice mid-air and thanks to the Polar Vortex, besides water turning into ice mid-air, people in the USA are coming across frost-ridden bathroom walls, ceiling,

and doors inside their homes. In one of the memes, we have a tree totally covered in snow and a Twitter user wrote, “Even the trees are “grumpy” and up-in-arms because of this Polar Vortex and windy weather!!” In another meme, a car is totally covered with snow and the meme reads, ‘Even cars in Illinois aren’t amused by this arctic blast’. But amid the countless memes, our favorite one is a picture of the Statue of Liberty as the meme reads, ‘#PolarVortex #PolarVortex2019 Ms Liberty is not playing today.’

After reading this, we are sure one thing that is instantly going to cross your mind is What is Polar Vortex and therefore, we will help you in understand the term. As the name suggests, Polar Vortex is found around the North Pole and it is a large area of low pressure and cold air surrounding both of the Earth’s poles. Polar Vortex is a band of strong winds, high up in the atmosphere that keeps bitterly cold air locked around the Arctic region. In several cities suffering from the Polar Vortex, the mercury has dipped below the freezing point and people are left with no option to entertain themselves but to come up with social media memes and crazy challenges. Take a look at some of the best challenges on Polar Vortex 2019 doing the rounds online.
