VIDEO: 'I froze my brain up in Canada' song goes viral

The extreme cold alerts across Canada have inspired a new song called, 'I froze my brain up in Canada.'

In the viral video, two brothers-in-law in Manitoba are sitting in -50 C conditions, huddled near a fire. Guitarist, Robert Thiessen takes his mitts off not a minute early before strumming the guitar and singing with family members, Joe and Jody Kaonga:

"I'm stir crazy but I cannot go outside. I try but all my doors are frozen shut."

The rewrite of Toto's 'Africa' has been well-received across the country.

The video was posted on December 30 and already has nearly 200,000 views close to 5,000 shares.

If it doesn't warm your extremities it might at least warm your insides!
