The Diet Coke / Mentos Phenom

Someone just pointed me to this crazy video that just amazes me. And if you've ever heard or seen some of the knock off / rip off videos, this is the proper video to watch.

The one that started it all and got itself a Webby Award for their scientific curiosity.

It starts with 4 Mentos and 2 liters of Diet Coke. The rest is just plain fun and it's accompanied with a catchy theme.

Google or YouTube searches will bring up other idiocy where kids / guys try a similar themed process, but it's more self destructive and just a "creative" twist on the original, which, from what I can tell, shouldn't be tried at home. For real. One of these things can put an eye out!!
