No hills? No sled? No problem. This Texan got creative, to say the least, when snow landed in Lubbock.

LUBBOCK, Texas (KTRK) -- No hills? No sled? No shirt? No problem.

A group of friends in Lubbock wanted to enjoy the fresh snowfall on Jan. 10, but ran into a couple bumps along the way, namely that they didn't have proper hills or a sled.

So the friends got creative.

With a beer in his hand, Conor O'Neill went "sledding" using an old mattress tied to a truck as his friends drove around the neighborhood.

"Conor thought it would be funny to do it shirtless while chugging a PBR," Lubbock resident Megan Schroeter told Storyful. "It was hilarious and definitely a great way to start 2021."

While they say they have a good time, we should warn you: don't try this at home!
