Man’s Winter Adventure of Trying to Eat Ramen Outside in Freezing Weather Has the Internet in Splits
The 8-second-long video created quite the buzz on the internet with floods of conflicting opinions and hilarious reactions.
A bowl of hot soupy Ramen on a freezing winter day? Sounds like the perfect plan. A man named Jake Fischer had the same idea but the weather had other plans. In a video shared to his Instagram profile, Fischer showed up in winter attire with his eyes, hair and beard covered in icicles and a bowl of frozen Ramen in his hand. Fischer, who goes by the username @voicesofjake on Instagram, is an actor/entertainer.
The bizarre video opens up with Fischer saying: "I came outside to eat some ramen. And, it got a little too cold." The clip shows how holding up some ramen with his fork until he takes his hands off the fork and we see the cutlery and noodles floating in mid-air. The 8-second-long video created quite the buzz on the internet with floods of conflicting opinions and hilarious reactions. The video was captioned, "Ramen has cooled! @cluelessbushcraft did this last year, so I had to try."
Fischer posted the video to his social media accounts on December 28, 2022, and it has since garnered 28.8 million views on TikTok, 1.3 million likes on Instagram, and thousands of comments.
The virtual world had mixed emotions regarding his frozen Ramen video. Some were in splits, some in absolute awe, while others were skeptical of Fischer's video act.
@Nani60038 was dubious and asked, "Someone answer, is this thing true? Low temperatures, or is it just propaganda?" Another Instagram user, @natasrepus69, wrote: "This is fake; people are so gullible."
Meanwhile, some other internet users appreciated his efforts, with @metalisarkar praising: "Fake or not, I enjoyed this. Sure he worked hard to achieve this footage. Much appreciated." @Joshzevely echoed similar sentiments, commenting: "Talk about commitment. How long did you stand outside to achieve this?"
Some others had the funniest responses to his performance. "Rumor has it that his still waiting for ramen to melt till now," amused Instagram user @Elijahtronic_arts. @Awso.me7646, playfully commented, "His hair looks like grated cheese."
In a similar winter tale, a sports reporter named Mark Woodley became popular on the internet when he resorted to comical comments during his hour-long crack-of-dawn report. Woodley helped with the winter weather update in Waterloo, Iowa, in extreme weather conditions and cracked up the internet by his displeasure at being forced to be out in the cold.
This is what you get when you ask the sports guy to come in to cover a blizzard in the morning show. pic.twitter.com/h0RL9tVQqg— Mark Woodley (@MarkWoodleyTV) December 22, 2022
A viral video of his reporting was shared by Woodley on Twitter with the caption: "This is what you get when you ask the sports guy to come in to cover a blizzard in the morning show." His post was loved by thousands of people, with it gaining 11.6 million views and 812k likes.
In the video, Woodley says: "I normally do sports, but everything is canceled here for the next couple of days. So what better time to ask the sports guy to come in about five hours earlier than he would normally wake up, stands out in the wind and the snow and the cold, and tell other people not to do the same? I didn't even realize that there was a 3:30 (show) also in the morning until today."

He concludes the video by asking: "Can I go back to my regular job? I'm pretty sure you guys added an extra hour to the show just because somebody likes torturing me because compared to 2 and a half hours ago, it is just getting colder and colder." During an appearance on TODAY, Woodley mentioned how he is familiar with Iowa's winters because he belongs there. He also addressed his newfound fame and admitted that he is unable to understand why he got famous. "Of all the things that I thought I'd be known for in my life, crotchety old weather reporter was not on the list," he said.
