• Short Summary

    Spartans of Vienna swim in the icy Danube, then cover a man in snow to mark his 70th birthday!

  • Description

    Titles read: "South of Zero! Come with us now to Vienna, where the local Spartans are celebrating their chairman's 70th birthday - by diving into the icy Danube, and rubbing him in the snow!"

    Vienna, Austria.

    Several shots of mad men in clad in just trunks, swimming in the Danube River, which is covered with patches of ice. The group of men and women in swimsuits sit on the riverbank and one man makes a speech to their 'chairman'. He is handed a large piece of ice from the river, and is then completely covered with snow by the men and squealing women.
