Yellow in the snow

Natasha tells another tale: "I once witnessed a guy from Jamaica at a Canadian hotel freaking out at seeing snow for the first time. He took off his shoes, ran outside in his bare feet, turned around to look at the crowd watching him with a stunned expression on his face, realised his feet were cold and ran back in. Then, he ran back out dragging some of his reluctant Jamaican friends and started taking pictures. Yellowman’s ‘We wish you a reggae Christmas’ goes out to them and their culture shock."

There's a great scene from Cool Runnings where John Candy is walking out of the hotel into the winter weather, and the Jamaican bobsled team behind him doesn't quite make it...

Thanks for all the great shares here!
