It`s just a video of how to make a hot-air balloon. Where`s the fake mountain dew experiment? Besides, I`d never waste mountain dew.

The hot air balloon was much better than a fake video.

The tomato one was fake as well. At best it was a glow stick, at worst, a photoshop.

Also, do not drink hydrogen peroxide! It is toxic if too much is ingested. Just because you put it on your cuts doesn`t mean that it`s safe to drink.

Tried it and it fizzes like crazy, but it doesn`t glow. But if it`s concetrated enough it might explode.

Even if it did work you still couldn`t drink it after. I think maybe this was original intended to be a cruel joke the baking soda mixed with the mountain dew might explode and the peroxide will bleach everything in the surrounding area. Maybe someone should go to the Mythbusters fan site and suggest they do this, so they can figure out some way to make it work with household items or something.

It`s baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. One is used for cooking and the other for First Aid. Of course it`s safe to drink...B-|

Kyur, it does not work simply because of the chemistry of it. Mountain dew will not glow because you put baking soda and hydrogen peroxide in it. The tomato glowed, because the sulfur in the matches, an oxidizer (bleach), and hydrogen peroxide. Look at the contents of a glow stick, and you will see the basic chemicals that those household items contain. Hydrogen peroxide mixed with baking soda doesn`t even have a chemical reaction as far as I know, nonetheless mixing it with soda, which is simply carbonation.

I know, but when you screen shot it you can see the bottle was open before he poured it into the glass. He could have easily added the match/bleach solution before the video or when they were distracting you with the baking soda.

Yeah, the tomato one was on here a while back. I am starting to think that`s how me made it glow instead of the stick.

Also, I like that persons pic, the one who submitted the link.

"has anyone here tried it yet? We`re all jumping to "fake" but ... I`m not totally convinced it is yet. Someone try it for me. I don`t want to get out of my lay-z-boy."

Yeah, I tried it a couple days ago when I saw it on hookerspace. That was before I read the comments. Then I just made a vinegar/baking soda balloon bomb thing.

Ohhh. Just went back and watched the video again. Pay attention to when they zoom in on the baking soda in the spoon, and as they zoom back out you can see they are putting back a Mt. Dew bottle on the table...
