Frosty's Got a Gun

Posted By on Fri, Nov 13, 2015 at 2:38 PM

Frosty's got a gun
His whole world's come undone
  From lookin' straight at the sun
"Frosty's Got a Gun" Aerosmith of Earth 2

Have you ever stopped to think about some of the things that go on in the popular holiday song "Frosty the Snowman?" Like that part where Frosty leads the children down the streets of town right to a traffic cop. And he "Only paused a moment when he heard him holler, 'STOP!'"


Have you ever wondered how Frosty could just flat out ignore a policeman's direct order and get away with it? Well, he's white, obviously, but that's only part of the story. What we didn't know until this ad for Bass Pro's $49.99 holiday inflatables came out: Frosty, the "happy, jolly soul" immortalized in song, is also seven feet tall and packing major heat.
