‘Ice Breaker’ snowman pranks unsuspecting pedestrians

Though no videotaped prank will ever touch the evil involved in the Brazilian elevator nightmare, Rich Ferguson also enjoys giving unsuspecting folks a good shot of adrenaline-pumping terror on candid camera.

Known for his self-styled "Scare Pranks," the California-based magician made good use of his "Ice Breaker" alter ego by dressing his cameraman up in a creepy snowman outfit and having him scare the bejesus out of holiday shoppers.

The anti-Frosty drops his Happy Holidays sign just as a kind, conscientious citizen walks by, banking on the fact that said citizen will do the kind, conscientious thing and retrieve it for the immobile snowball person.

This isn't the first time a snowman has been used for similar purposes. Last year, a pair of friends constructed the Grumpy Cat of snowman costumes and terrorized pedestrians across the U.S. East Coast.
