Frosty the snowman was a very grumpy dude, in Portland.

In December the Scary Snowman appeared on the sidewalks of Portland, Maine. The stunt was set up outside Mainely Frames & Gallery on Congress Street.

Comedian Jay Karl of New York City is the man behind the prank. He happened to have a snowman costume (don't we all?) and decided to put it to use scaring the crap out of folks around the country. The Scary Snowman Youtube channel features similar videos shot in cities around the country.

While some Mainers in the video barley flinch, others probably had to check their pants for a few lumps of coal.
