Canadian Kids Create 'Coronavirus' Snowball and Attempt to Destroy It

Rather than build a traditional snowman after the first snowfall in St John’s, Newfoundland, on November 15, two friends created something a little more fitting of 2020 – a coronavirus snowball.

Jo-Ann Murphy recorded this video of her daughter and her friend’s creation, which was dubbed the “Corona Ball,” and their attempts to destroy it. Murphy told Storyful the Corona Ball felt more appropriate for 2020 and they thought it’d be fun to try and destroy it.

“But it turned out to be harder than we thought,” she said. Credit: Jo-Ann Murphy via Storyful
