IT'S almost like a scene out of the hit movie Iron Man 3 with exploding and advancing tentacles of ice.

But instead of being underwater, and threatening New York, incredible video from YouTube shows what a glacier would look like if it moved faster.

The video shows what happens when ice begins to melt on a frozen lake with strong winds pushing it across the ice that remains.

The ice moves straight onto the lakeshore and into houses at Izaty's Resort on Mille Lacs Lake in Minnesota on Saturday.

"It's really pushing in,'' a woman on the video exclaims.

"That is crazy.''
