This guy must be the coolest person ever, and, in the process, he’s created what must easily be the greatest time-lapsed documentary on building an ice rink in your backyard set to Coldplay’s “Clocks” ever produced.  In all seriousness, though, this is amazing…for some reason:

Every year I enjoy making this rink in my backyard to play hockey on. This year I thought it would be a neat idea to make a time lapse of the process of getting the rink put together. While starting to play hockey in kindergarten I would always use the pool in my backyard to ice skate on every single winter. It doesn’t require as much effort to get set up, but the demensions are smaller. This rink is 50 feet by 30 feet, and is located in Massachusetts.
