      Why did you not holed it

    3. Lemmy Winks

      Fins and a cone and you can get some real height out of this. Also, this principle applied to a piece of capped pvc with a 1/8 hole and well, welcome to the world of primitive rockets.

      Hold on to it after the flip

      1. lane Johnston

        Nevermind just saw it

    5. Mr. Khan

      Imagine just going to the canyon and seeing an entire coke bottle go 50 miles per hour

      Imagine if they landed it

      You look like fred flintstone lol

    10. Daze Candeque

      I wonder what would happen if you put the lid back on after putting the butane in and then flipped it

    11. Hattie Black

      imagine them being high school physic teachers doing experiments like this in a classroom and blowing the school up accidentally

      it was my birthday that day

      now the movie "The Gods Must Be Crazy" makes sense :D

    16. robsche

      Ohhh so there's Butane inside mentos

    17. Tom W.

      Bamboozled Dan reminds me of Ron Weasley

    18. 57thorns

      exhilarating experience? You mean accelerating experience? :-)

    19. Musical Junkie

      Excuse me. I want to meet the sound at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="211">3:31</a> please. He was here and gone very quickly

    20. 5353Jumper

      Why not use carbonated water instead of Coke? Maybe a better effect and less sticky.

    21. AML

      I really want coke after this video.

    22. Coen hirdes

      You guys should do this again and try and make a vertical tube so it goes up straight, more like an actual rocket

    23. Dylan Norris

      Isn’t this more chemistry than physics?

    24. Troublebrew

      Honestly I was hoping they’d try yeeting it instead of a normal launch

      In this video Gav and Dan attempt to land a coke bottle on the moon using a bit of butane. They came 238,899.99 miles short but it was a good effort. love your vids

    27. Goa supreme

      What happens if you put butane in the coke bottle, close the coke bottle and then flip it ?

    28. radikewl70

      That was very cool but I'd like to see it with the lid on and a hole in the lid about 1/4" to see how far it goes.

    29. Domenico Rutigliano

      I never LoL so much with your videos

    30. /NeZeroN //

      I love it when you ask a british person a question,and he takes that massive breth

    32. Bored American

      Imagine putting a lid on it add having it explode that would be awesome!!!

    33. Deron Tildsley

      Who else waited for the bottle to come down to hit dan’s head 😂

    34. Dom Tanner

      I am reading the 'Gav' on his shirt wrong

    35. Damon McDonald

      Literally right as I was thinking what would I do with a 2 liter you pulled one out🤣

    36. Flammable Nate

      Dan: trying to explain the way it works in the easiest way possible Me: Still doesn't understand it

      Imagine doing this indoors

    41. Taylor Baggins

      Dan: *flips us all off while explaining*

    42. Antonio Maglione

      Incredibly funny, thank you for the video! Chuckling all the time! And, I didn't know the bottle had to be almost empty before taking off. Compliments - from the UK!

    43. Mihai At3ka

      If you get a cap from gatorade or som' similar, with a reduction in diameter you'll triple the flight time, speed and distance. I've done it with a hand pump and water (0.5L PET) got about 15m high and 40m away… remake? 🙄🙄🙄

    46. Sherlock Holmes

      upvoted for dan's face in slow mo, per usual

    47. Duskie Kun

      How much bottles of this to launch a rocket to space?

    48. M So

      At <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="221">3:41</a> sweaty looks like the bad guy from captain pugwash 😂

    49. Joel Mathews

      While everyone is paying attention to the bottles Me what character is that face o_O

    50. TheVergile

      you need a paper/foil seal to stop all the cola from coming out before “ignition”. thats your reaction mass

    51. Алекс Титов

    52. edward nigma

      Why not make a connection shaped holder to slam the two litter in once you turn it around?

    53. teaddub

      Try reducing the size of your nozzle.

    54. Jeff R

      So I did this exact experiment a couple years ago for my college physics class. Got a 95% grade on it too. But anyhow I experimented with flat coke, carbonated coke and plain tap water. Each was experimented with at both room temperature and heated to 140 degrees. 3 runs of each of those combinations. Lots of butane and bottles used lol. The goal was to find out if the reaction was caused by additives in the coke, the carbonation or purely temperature. I timed each run from the moment the bottle launched to when it landed back on the ground to gauge how much thrust there was and averaged all the times for each liquid/temperature category. I also put the butane into a separate container and then poured it into the coke bottle to minimize the time it had to change the temp of the liquid for better accuracy of the experiment. What I found was that the carbonation had virtually no effect on the explosiveness of the reaction but rather the temperature of the liquid was most responsible. Basically the greater the temperature difference between the liquid and the butane, the faster the butane boils and converts to gas.

      dude those close ups could be made into a commercial

    56. Gioia Mariella

      Hello I'm Gav I'm Sweaty

    57. hozzy erie

      If I were in space, could this be my rocket

    58. hozzy erie

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="162">2:42</a>. Lighter fluid is flammable. The more you know


      Somehow that protective transparent mask looks strangely familiar now

    60. Jakob S

      That first launch with the bigger bottle seriously looks like a missile launch from the M41 VLS of a Warship. Like the direction and the way it is going off.

    61. Benjamin Hartmann

      Its a bit late but you guys now carbonated water?? and sure its late but you guys know beer kegs?

    62. Cole Smith


    63. Sean Jensen

      dan in slowmo is beautiful

    64. ngung nghi khong

      I like that face <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="220">3:40</a>

    65. Boris Georgiev

      meme face

    66. Robin Tynan

      I like Science Dan

    67. Chris

      You don't need to convert temperatures (or anything else) as america has been a metric country since July 1866.

    68. Konstantinos Von

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="370">6:10</a> would look gorgeous with some backlight, a mirror preferably

    69. Random Justificator

      You look like the sloth from Zootopia

    70. Dan TheChildPerson

      i bet this could be a coke ad

    71. svxnger

      flippin heck !

    72. oxy coding

      the next thing you know parents will be using this to pull out there children's teeth


      Sub To me

    74. BoopLoopy

      779 people wanted the coke but they "wasted" it

    75. Taydrum

      Do it again, but put the cap on, and drill a hole in the cap smaller than the open neck of the bottle


      you should of put a match or flame to it as'well, now that would of bee n awesome,

    77. RudeMood

      Pause at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="116">1:56</a>

    78. Double B in the Morning

      Dan's facial expressions are the funniest parts of these videos

    79. GeezR

      Please please please... The VENTURI effect LOWERS the pressure but increase the flow. Not the first time u made that error.

    80. SpamReciever420

      The close-ups look like SloMo from Dredd
