Man swims in 1,500-gallon pool of Coca-Cola

Would you go for a swim in a pool filled with Coca-Cola ? Image Credit: YouTube / TechRax
The remarkable stunt saw a man jump in to a pool filled with several thousand bottles of fizzy drink.
The brainchild of YouTube blogger Taras 'TechRax' Maksimuk, the ludicrous endeavour involved dumping Coca-Cola, Mentos and several bags of ice in to a large swimming pool and mixing it all together in to a black, churning pool of sugary fizz.

In the video, which was uploaded last Friday, a brave volunteer by the name of Ryan can be seen taking a running jump in to the pool before cracking open a bottle of Cola and taking a swig from it.
"Ryan stayed in the pool for roughly 20 minutes and didn’t notice any significant changes to his skin or hair other than feeling really sticky," Maksimuk later told the Huffington Post in an email. "But he said his skin felt very smooth in the pool."

It remains unclear how the duo managed to obtain so much Cola or how much it cost them, but to fill a 1,500-gallon pool they would have needed several thousand bottles of it.

I just don't understand why anyone would ever want to do this. I remember hearing that the stuff will eat through the paint job on your car, if you let it sit long enough.

It would have been better if the pool was full of Diet Coke, and the guy jumping in was wearing sweat pants stuffed full of Mentos. Maybe he'd be lifted right out of the water and back onto the decking?

Do you want ants? Because that's how you get ants.
