Here at imjussayin, the watermelon-centric videos we’ve featured in the past usually revolved around a new way to slice, dice, or eat the flowering plant. But this video – courtesy of The Backyard Scientist – is unlike anything we’ve seen before. From the guy who brought the world a video entitled “Exploding Arrows,” comes his latest production – pouring molten aluminum into a watermelon. “Why?” you may ask, but the answer is clear – for science! The Backyard Scientist enjoys any chemistry-related experiments, as well as melting and burning random things. He’s acknowledged that what he does isn’t always the safest activity, but he assures us that it’s okay because he’s a seasoned veteran in the field.
Check out his latest video, where he pours molten aluminum in a nice plump watermelon and promptly reveals the aftermath. It’s pretty fascinating stuff, if I do say so myself. What did you expect the inside of the watermelon to look like? Did you enjoy the video? If you did, be sure to share it on Facebook!
