Candy corn + root beer = another Nobody's Watching short -- VIDEO

by Richard Keller, posted Sep 24th 2006 12:14PM

Nobody's Watching and the MentosThe stars from Nobody's Watching, the pilot, turned YouTube posting, turned NBC show, are back. This time around they spoof one of the staples of the ever-growing video posting site.

If you were ever a visitor to YouTube you have probably seen one of the seven thousand videos that show what happens when you add Mentos to a bottle of Diet Coke. Not to spoil the surprise, but you get a Diet Coke fountain (don't ask me the science behind it. I did poorly in Chemistry; hence the reason I'm a writer.). Well, Taran Killam and Paul Campbell, the stars of Nobody's Watching, have taken it a few steps further and experimented with other combinations of food added to beverages. For instance, mixing Sweettarts with Sprite produces a baby chicken. Go figure. And, when they mix something like a Mike & Ike (the actual name of the candy escapes me) with a carton of milk they get transported to a leather bar. Wow, I probably don't want to try that experiment!

The best combination they work with is the first one where they add a candy corn to a one-liter bottle of root beer. I don't want to ruin the results because they are a bit surprising. You can watch all of the experiments after the jump.

All mythbuster viewers will say that it is caused by nuclearization. Basicly what it is is that if you view the mentos up close it is like the surface of the moon. It has small holes in it, when it is released into the coke the holes will take the oxygen out of the coke and then release it, creating loads of boubles which is the same effect you get if you shake it.
