How many rubber bands does it take to blow up a watermelon?
This is a question that was on the minds of several young Japanese men recently as they set out to find the answers.
The goal was to simply add 10 rubber bands at a time until the watermelon in question burst open.
The number quickly reaches 50 with no results, so the guys just kept adding more, at the rate of 10 at a time.
According to the video, which has now gone viral, it finally took around 500 rubber bands before the giant fruit erupted like a volcano bent on ultimate destruction.
