Okay, so technically the video has nothing to do with the world of fine beverage except for the fact that it uses coffee as a way to parody the oil crisis affecting the Gulf Coast.

Rumors of nakedness have been buzzing all throughout the country of Argentina. And you might be asking yourself why. Well, let me tell you.

True story: when one puts Mentos candies in Diet Coke, an eruption occurs.
In 2006, this modern day marvel (and awesome party trick) reached the level of Internet stardom when Fritz Grobe and Stephen Voltz posted the “Extreme Diet Coke & Mentos Experiments” video on EepyBird.com. The original video, in what became a series, re-created the famous fountain display outside the Bellagio Hotel in Vegas, using a timed series of eruptions. See the full post »
