New Astra gets Encased in Gigantic Snow Shaker

We've seen a lot neat stuff over the years but this is a first. The folks over at Opel's sister company Vauxhall outdid themselves with the creation of a giant snow globe that was made especially for the Vauxhall Ice Skate event that will take place in London on Thursday, January 28.

The one-of-a-kind snow shaker measures five-meters in diameter (16.4 feet) and according to the organizers, it will be filled with some 50 bags of artificial snow for the ice skating disco event.

In addition to the Astra snow globe, Vauxhall plans to bring a Gingerbread car and the so-called, Car-aoke Corsa to the happening.
