Last summer, Japanese YouTube star Hajime covered himself in hundreds of Mentos, then took a bath in 350 litres of Coke Zero.
Despite the results not being as explosive as we’ve come to expect from the candy-cola combination — instead of a violent eruption, the coke just foamed and fizzled — the video of his bath-time experiment is now going viral, perhaps for his bravery more than anything else.
Hajime is hardly the first to experiment by putting himself in harm's way with Mentos and Diet Coke.
The Epic Meal Time guys attempted a similar experiment — but instead of a bathtub, they used a dunk tank — for their FYI show, Epic Meal Empire, last season.
Watch a short clip from that stunt below. (Or watch the entire thing at FYI here.)

Lesson learned: If your bottle rocket is fuelled by Coke and candy, stand back.
