Man takes a bath in Coca-Cola and Mentos

Here’s one way to beat the heat. Over the weekend, popular YouTuber TechRax (a.k.a. Taras Maksimuk) filled a 1,500 gallon swimming pool with Coca-Cola, Mentos—the freshmaker!— and lots and lots of ice before enlisting his buddy, Ryan, to dip his feet. (Or, run at full speed toward the pool and dive in.)

After letting Ryan wade around for a bit, TechRax decides to up the ante with his signature destruction of a piece of tech. The unlucky electronic in this case: a DJI Phantom 4. The drone is billed as having “visionary intelligence” and “elevated imagination,” but neither seems to be enough to withstand a bunch of Coke. After about 10 seconds of steady flight, the drone slams into the side of the pool and struggles as the battery starts to drown. A few more mere seconds pass before the drone meets a watery (so to speak) end.


Buddy Ryan fares better, though, his chief and, really, only complaint being that he could “feel all the fizz from the inside, and it’s really weird.”
