Look, it's the middle of a pandemic, so we've got to get our kicks however we can, alright?

Today, our desperation has led us to his video of a tractor cleaning the wall of the I-94 Lowry Hill Tunnel, and it's proven satisfying enough to distract us from our bleak existence for a few seconds.

Look as the walls blackened by dust and fumes are wiped away by what we can only assume is a giant, wet sponge attached to the tractor.

In any case, it's happening again Thursday night, with I-94 closed at the tunnel between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Traffic will be detoured around the tunnel closure via the Hennepin-Lyndale bypass.
