This Guy Poured Molten Metal Into a Watermelon. The Result Is Stranger Than You'd Think

A YouTube video maker decided it would be a good idea to pour molten aluminum into a watermelon, and it produced an odd sculpture in the process.

The video was uploaded on The Backyard Scientist’s channel, showing him heating up aluminum before pouring the molten metal into a hollowed-out watermelon.

After that, he let it sit and cut the watermelon to expose the metal piece.

“What happened is the aluminum found little channels throughout the watermelon that connected the seed chambers to each other, and this caused this awesome casting to happen,” he said.

The result, he added, was “totally unintentional.”
