Oh the possibilities.

Originally I had this video sent to me way back in December. I thought it was pretty neat, but I had forgotten about.

Flash forward 4 months and now we have yet another video of the same thing, except this time it’s done in someone’s bathroom.

All I have to say about the whole thing is that, I wonder what would happen if you where able to get the cap screwed onto the bottle quick enough to keep it from exploding. I’m picturing great practical joke possibilities here people. Yes, they would be messy for everyone around, but funny as hell.

I wonder if the mentos were put in some kind of dissolvable wrapper first, then jammed into the two liter...

This warrants experimentation....

Offhand, I don't think re-capping the bottle would make it any better. If you did, the Mentos would still release the gas from the liquid, but it wouldn't go anywhere. Figure it'd be just like shaking the bottle really hard with the cap on.
