Weep softly when you realize you are this scoop of ice cream
We all know how it feels to stand out in the sweltering summer heat too long, but this YouTube video really puts that melting feeling in perspective.
YouTube user Ilsoo Yang’s artful masterpiece, set to Chrome Sparks’s oddly appropriate tune “All There Is,” shows time lapses of several forms of ice cream melting. Gradually yet beautifully, the treats lose their scooped shapes, ultimately turning into colorful, sugary rivers and ice cream volcanoes. Even more solid frozen treats are not spared; they ooze and dribble into shapeless masses around their popsicle sticks.
The video does have a happy ending, though: All of the ice cream un-melts and reforms.
Since July and August are typically the hottest months of the summer, make sure you enjoy that refreshing ice cream in a hurry, and look forward to feeling a little more refrozen come autumn.
