As per RT.com, the party was planned to mark the birthday of one of group members, who had intentionally waited for a very chilly day to make the clip. “The weather did its thing and gave us a record minus [temperature] for my idea,” he wrote.
The vapour coming out of the revellers’ mouths made it abundantly clear that it was very, very cold. The temperature in Tomsk at the hour of the shoot really dropped to short 39 Celsius, as per a telephone highlighted in the recording.
