For some reason, a YouTube user has been placing items next to moving lava to see what happens. This time, he set up a can of coke next to the lava flow.

“Lava flow and two cans of Coca Cola. The first can had a tiny hole punched in the top to prevent it from randomly exploding. I wanted to see if it would fountain as it heated up but, the can just sort of squirted coke,” user LavaPix explains.

He adds: “Don’t try this at home. Of course if you do have a lava flow at your house, trying this is the least of your problems. Safety precautions were taken and only the GoPro was slightly in harms way. By the end of this outing most of my camera gear was just a bit sticky. There was limited room to move about so, settings are what they are.”
