Insane experiment produces giant foam volcano

YouTuber Nick Uhas recently tried to set a new world record by creating a mountain of 'elephant toothpaste'.
A staple of school science experiments, the voluminous foam is produced by the rapid decomposition of hydrogen peroxide using water and potassium iodide or yeast as a catalyst.

The experiment is particularly notable due to the rapid nature of the reaction that occurs and the fact that it will typically produce a veritable volcano of foam that can quickly get out of hand.

Earlier this year, Nick Uhas, David Dobrik and a few of their friends decided to try their hand at creating the world's largest volcano of elephant toothpaste.

While the experiment succeeded, a rival team later created their own - even larger - volcano.
Now in a bid to reclaim the crown, Uhas and Dobrik have returned with a new video showing them produce what is assuredly the largest mound of elephant toothpaste to date.

The pair used 625 liters of hydrogen peroxide and ended up with a whopping 67.5 cubic meters of foam which quickly filled the available space and started to overflow over the fence and up the walls.

Suffice to say - everyone involved had to make a rather hasty retreat to escape the wave of foam.

You can check out the full video below.

Interesting. But, I'd hate to be the one that had to clean up that mess.

Let's hope hydrogen peroxide and yeast trucks never collide.

I agree. I shared the video on social media but I linked directly to the point in time where the fun begins, otherwise people will just get bored and stop watching.

Could be an awesome idea to make a video on Youtube...
