December 4th, 2016. Frosty the Inflatable Snowman was just chillin’ on the front lawn of his owner Jeff Diggs’ place, as inflatable snowmen are wont to do.
Then, under the cold dark blanket of that December evening, tragedy struck as a white man “possibly in his mid 20s with a bandanna covering his face” appeared from a nearby car and mercilessly stabbed Frosty the Inflatable Snowman’s delicate polyester skin.
Frosty the Inflatable Snowman on his road to recovery, and Jeff.
Jeff then did the only thing that made sense to him: post the video footage online and start a satirical Go Fund Me page asking for help with Frosty’s medical expenses. Jeff said he wrote it “from a humor perspective to kind of make me feel better about what had happened. There’s a lot of outrage, you can tell people are outraged. you can tell people are disgusted about what took place, the senselessness of it.”
Any donations he receives will be going to a genuinely good cause, the Judge Joe Murphy’s Good Kids In Need, a local Christmas charity in St. Louis.
Frosty the Inflatable Snowman is said to make a full recovery, and is looking forward to spending more time on Jeff’s front yard before being stuffed in a box and left in a closet for 8 months.
