Finnish band Steve’n’Seagulls offers up another great bluegrass cover of a rock classic. They performed their arrangement of Boston’s 1976 hit More Than a Feeling while enjoying a delightfully warm summer day along their country’s idyllic Lake Armisvesi.
It’s not nearly as large as their record-setting ice carousel, but this spinning race track from the Beyond the Press channel looks like a fun wintertime activity. We did get a little dizzy watching the video at times, though. In case you’re interested, those three-wheeled, all-season scooters come from Skick.
While the guys from Overdrive didn’t go as fast as these drivers did on the ice, it still looks like they had a blast learning how to control go-karts on a frozen lake in Finland. Despite having studded tires, and a modest amount of power, making karts do what you want them to on the ice takes a good bit of practice.
Skiers Verneri Hannula, Ilkka Hannula, and Juho Kilkki headed to Finland’s Havumäki Ranch, where they found heaps of fluffy powder and shushed through acres of snow-capped evergreens. Real Skifi’s short film is equal parts ski film and dreamy winter postcard. Filmed by Janne Korpela and Anton Geier. Edited by Juho Kilkki.
A few years back, the guys at the Beyond the Press channel created a small carousel on a frozen lake by cutting a circle in the ice. Now, they’re back with a super-sized version of the stunt, in which they helped make a 1000-foot diameter circle out of Finland’s lake Lappajärvi. The ice disc is estimated to weigh about 30,000 tons.
Device Orchestra previously amused audiences with music played on credit card terminals. Now, they’ve figured out a way to make electric toothbrushes into musical instruments. Sit back and enjoy a buzzy rendition of Jean Sibelius’ Finlandia Hymn, a popular composition in the nation the band calls home.
When they’re not crushing things with their hydraulic press, Lauri and Anni are fooling around in the snowy countryside of Finland. This week, they managed to create a single-person hot tub made entirely from ice. The color of that hot water is more than a bit sketchy.
