The funniest antics caught on one ski resort's webcams
An almost naked man doing a Miley Cyrus on a wrecking ball swing, a group traversing the piste on a sofa, a dog wearing a hoodie – either Obergurgl-Hochgurgl just happened to host every creative photobomber on the planet last season, or the video it's compiled of the best moments 'accidentally' captured by on-slope webcams is totally set up. And while the latter is undoubtedly true, what a brilliant set-up it is.
The video, complete with mock stern captions for the alleged photobombers ("Please stop it now, idiots"), was released to coincide with the Austrian resort's opening for the 2015/16 ski season this month. It shows footage from Obergurgl's three live webcam feeds on the slopes, capturing elaborate pranks such as the construction of snowmen caught in a compromising position. Wink wink.

There's also a makeshift beach scene complete with volleyball game, a cops and robbers chase in cardboard cut-out cars, and a man in a rubber dinghy being tailed by a shark. Whether real or more 'structured reality', the video shows the slopes of snowsure Obergurgl to advantage, displaying perfectly groomed pistes and not a hint of green.
