Heating up an ice cube

I saw this video a long time ago and just assumed it was fake, but I just saw it again and honestly don't know how this is possible. Wouldn't the ice cube just instantly melt?

If you someday see an ice cube that is burning with a red hot flame , then call every major news channel out there , they will fight till death over who gets to cover these news first... :D:D

But in the meantime , yes induction can heat (melt) ice as it can boil water as every other element that is a conductor atleast a little bit.
Changing electromagnetic fields cause eddy currents that heat metals like the core of a transformer etc.
But ice doesn't catch fire just because it's melting that for sure.
It's one of those ( let's get a million views) youtube videos. Entertainment nothing more and nothing less , and science for the crackpots :D


Oh and by the way , someone hasn't done his homework.....

Ok so I was right that it's fake. At least not as described by the title of the video.

I searched "hot ice" and a couple of other key words and couldn't find it. So yes, I did my homework, I guess I just suck at predicting what people will title a thread.

Well I am lazy too so I googled the video title and guess what I found ... :D:D:D

Sometimes you don't have to look far to see the necessary results.
