Have you ever seen those Mentos commercials?
Well, we’d like to present to you the marriage of these two fine consumer goods. Introducing the:
Mentos And Diet Coke Prank
The set up:
To set up the revenge technique, what you need to do is acquire your tools and supplies needed for success:
Pull a single mentos mint out of the packaging, and tie one end of the floss around the center of the mint in a loop.
Slowly open up the Diet Coke. We say slowly open it just in case someone is pranking you first, while you’re trying to set up this revenge prank (see the video at the end of this article). Place the tied mentos near the top of the cap.
Screw back on the cap of the Soda. Be sure to have the flossed up mentos mint near the top, sitting snuggly against the cap. You can now cut the floss to hide the evidence around the cap, once the string is held in place with the cap.
Sit back and enjoy. Or if feeling adventurous, record the video and upload it to your favorite streaming site for us. We’ll show it here if it’s awesome enough!
Why this works (short answer – Science!):
Without going too much into the science behind it, basically the Mentos reacts with the diet coke, causing the carbonation to fizz up and explode. Your unwitting victim will never know what hit them, because who honestly studies a soda they grab out of the fridge for too long? I always grab one without looking, and open right before I drink it. Hopefully your victim will to.
- Don’t put the soda on it’s side! This will cause the chemical reaction to occur suddenly!
- You can also do this to a 2 liter bottle.
Mentos and Diet Coke Prank Video:
There’s actually quite a few videos detailing this prank floating around on the interwebs. What’s great about this particular video is that the older sibling is pulling the mentos and diet coke prank on the sister, when she is trying to show a video of the Mentos and Diet Coke prank! Hilarious! See for yourself below 🙂
