Netflix’s Against the Ice the trailer cools me all the way to the bone and I do not envy the two men who have accepted such a dangerous mission. The campaign makes it look as if something could go wrong on their journey, so do it.

I’m getting cold just thinking about it and right now I’m wearing a hoodie and sweatpants.
