Watch This Guy Swim In A Pool Full Of Coke And Mentos… Ouch.

When it comes to over-the-top and/or wacky experiments, we're totally in favor of all of them (provided that they're relatively safe, of course). We like it even more when the brave orchestrator of said experiment manages to get the entire thing on video or in photos, providing us with Internet content that simply demands to be shared and enjoyed.

This is one of those experiments.

Conducted by a kid named Ryan, the experiment involves a 1,500 gallon pool full of Coca-Cola, a bucket of Mentos, several bags of ice, and one very unlucky drone camera. You can probably venture a guess on where this is going, but it's definitely worth checking out the photos below and seeing for yourself. Though we get to see the experiment from start to finish, we just have a few questions, the most pressing being: Where the hell did he get all of that Coke from?

This looks like an ordinary pool, right?

But you can't help but notice that the water in the pool is a little bit too...dark to be water. So what's going on here?

That's right, the entire pool is filled with Coca-Cola.

First of all, that's a lot of soda. Second of all, it would definitely make for an uncomfortably sticky swim, don't you think?

This is the guy that did it.

And he had a plan for a little experiment. Do your recognize what's in the bucket by the bags of ice?

It's actually a bucket full of Mentos.

His plan? Add the Mentos and ice to the pool of Coke, and hopefully get the same frothy reaction that you get when you add Mentos to a bottle.

He added some Mentos and 200 pounds of ice to the 1,500-gallon above ground pool.
