You will be wishing you had been in Alberta recently in order to both witness McDonald's Dollar Drink Days ice sculpture as well as partake in chipping it away for a very chilly reward. Within its icy depth was the fast food chain's iconic golden arches, made out of 4,000 Canadian dollar coins. Passersby were invited to methodically chip away at this frozen treat in order to "cool off with a $1 drink," as was written on the ice sculpture.

Needing no real prodding, the McDonald's Dollar Drink Days ice sculpture lasted only five hours before it was completely ransacked. A clever ad campaign, the company didn't even have to pay for anything considering that the money just came back to them in the end.
