The ice block hasn't melted yet as of 3:24 p.m., even as the car approaches 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
Watch as ice's natural reaction to heat unfolds right before your eyes! The drama! The intensity! THE MADNESS. We wonder if this will be the new form of entertainment-meets-important-breaking-news media, or if it's just a passing (yet viral!) fad. Only KUSA can tell us.

UPDATE 4:16 p.m. ET: The tape appears to have fallen off a clock inside the vehicle. A crafty gentleman is in the vehicle fixing it. The ice appears to be doing fine.
UPDATE 4:37 p.m. ET: We can hear -- though we cannot confirm -- what sounds like water dripping into a bucket. This may or may not mean the ice is melting.
UPDATE 5:03 p.m. ET: The ice is beginning to melt. Experts say the block is smaller than it was before.
