The visibly brave man not only spilled 6,800 litre Coca-Cola in the pool – but also a stack of Mento mints and 200 pounds of ice to the mix, before making a dip.
The man bought thousands of Coke bottles and it took many hours of opening and pouring to create ‘magnificent Coca-Cola pool’, as he described it.

Ukrainian Taras, based in California, wrote: “This was epic!
Asked how the bath felt, he replied: “I feel like I’m in a pool of Coke, man.” Bringing the TechRax tech ruin that he loves along, he then flew a DJI Phantom 4 quadcopter into the pool where it was wrecked by Coke.
For your information, when cola is mixed with Mento mints, a process called nucleation occurs, where the carbon dioxide in the fizzy drink reacts with the sugary surface of the mint and each one forms a mini explosion.
