rhys muggeridge: Where do you get hydrogen peroxide from? Plz send me a message back to
Ashleigh McKinney: All you did was add the glowstick and the soap the glowstick stuff made it
Alexander Poole: its cool, but you dont need mt dew to do this
James Cureton Jr.: Oh....so basically you pour something that ALLREADY glows in it...WOW
TheDegree777: This video should have a disclaimer at the beginning not safe for
ScarsforSkullz: Does this actually work
Sara Zechman: you only get it to glow because of the glow stick
Teron Gorefiend: Huh. Cool.
niFe: Or just pour in some Schweppes and shine a UV light over it. Also it will
not kill you like the chemical jam in the video.
Göktuğ Erol: Seems like Mountain Dev is very carcinogenic...
Alex D: Another way to make it glow is to put a flashlight behind it...Seriously,
most useless video EVER.
Tim Peters: Now drink it...
Moldymortz0720: You never used the dish detergent on the "hoax," you just left it out
rhys muggeridge: Can you do it with out mountian dew can you do it with lemonade?
Alexander Poole: yummy, I drank some and it tasted EVEN BETTER!!! YAAYYY
I also cant see anymore, soo...
Danny Moe: Was anyone else looking for a drinkable glowing mountain dew video?
Christian Bryan the illusionist: There was no warning about consumption... You're lucky somebody doesn't sue
your ass for not giving a warning regarding not drinking the glowing
Mountain Dew.. Which is highly freakin toxic.
scs0827: U just made a glow stuck with a freakin glow stick! This is dumb.
Liam Moher: For the apparent "Hoax" (which you misuse the word hoax) you are also
suppose to add 2 star bursts. PS putting the materials of a glow stick into
something to make it glow is not magic.
Leslie Day formally Frazier: this is DUMB!! so you made it NON drinkable
Brendan Omalahan: For all of you who are complaining about this video, all Ms./Mrs.
Helmenstine is trying to say is:
1) Whoever originally said Mt. Dew, bicarbonate, and peroxide, produces
luminescence, is lying and THEIR VIDEO(S) is/are a hoax. To prove this, she
does the experiment according to how they state to show it, indeed, IS
2) She shows by adding the dish detergent and glow stick reagents, you have
the necessary ingredients for luminescence to occur, and THAT'S HOW THE
ORIGINAL VIDEO FAKED THE GLOWING.
For an understanding of luminescence look up "glow sticks chemistry" and
read up on it, THAT'S CLEARLY WHAT SHE DID. Wikipedia shows the Organic
Synthesis mechanism as well as explanation of the Chemistry occurring.
All of those of you pissed off and saying "why make a glowing liquid using
a glow stick," again, all she is showing is how the people in the previous
video(s) faked their results. THAT'S ALL SHE'S DOING!!!
If you want to get pissed off, GET MAD AT THE MORONS WHO FAKED THE FIRST
VIDEO. They obviously came up with the video to make money off of your
view, plague THEIR VIDEO with angry comments!
Also, please read video descriptions carefully and think about what is
being said by the person overall before posting comments. You're only
making yourself look like fools who cannot read and/or think for
yourselves. You CAN think for yourselves, right?
With all that said, thank you for correcting this false display of
Chemistry going around the internet Ms./Mrs. Helmenstine, coming from a
fellow Chemist, and keep up your great work!!
dcsmooth: Add a glowstick, of course. These would be cool if one of the ingredients
used to make the Mountain Dew glow stick WASN'T ANOTHER freakING
GLOWSTICK!!!! Show us how to make the stuff that's in the glowstick. I can
shove a glowstick into a piece of crap and make a glowstick.....well, a
Wayon Shaw: Glowing mountain dew
Todd Keener: Debunking a hoax,
Brent Scheinman: this is dumb, you need a glowstick to make a glowstick..
howaboutsomeroyg: i made it glow but i didn't know i wasn't supposed to drink it
Josh Robloxian: Please dont drink it...Think of your life...Think of your
health...Th...Think of your family...Think of yourself!
skyphantom29: OR.... You could just have the glow stick and not waste your time or drink
kevin spencer: Add Tonic water and put it under a black light.
Honolulu Gamer: How dare you not warn that this is toxic! My brother drank this and threw
up and is sick in bed right now!!! Are you trying to kill somebody??? Shame
Yocari Vigil: U have to shake it duh
GRACE BATTLEFIELD: thats so stupid to add a glow stick , Well no duh! Ya Im making a homemade
glowing liquid with an actual glowing liquid in it. Try doing it without
the glowstick dumb ass
hallo12345198: OMG YOURE SO DUMB ITS BECAUSE OF THE GLOW STICK
kolby mcavoy: Good job you old bitch. Way to ruin it.
Layzie_Me: why do the chemicals make it react that way??
Ahilin Barajas: hey im doing this for a science project and I wanted to know if you have
any question I could ask my class and data ,results and conclusion
iMollyPop: How to make a Glow Stick, you will need: Mountain dew, peroxide, baking
soda and a glow stick... Why would you even need to make one if you need
one to make it! MY BRAIN HURTS!!!
zigzagtuna: Can you drink it?
Angelina Sosa: U forgot soap dumbass
Franky Barbosa: I would do that but with my sibling they will be mistaken and drink which
could kill them
jbeandragon: how long does the glow last?
Braxton Larson: I will use this if I ever want to bleed internally from glow stick juice
Beto Osorno: This does work thanks a lot
SoundsUzed: How to make any liquid glow:
4200cg: Water + glowstick works just fine ...don't waste mtn dew!
Felipe Algo: i dran this and my stomach glowed
Bladex2105: BOOO!!!! U STINK!!
ferociousgumby: OF COURSE it will glow if you put a GLOWSTICK in it!!!! Why not just shove
it in a glass of water and be done with it. Jesus, I stay up late for this.
Tripper Getem: You are just mentally handicapped if any of you actually drank it. No, I
don't think there needs to be a warning on this video, if someone is
actually stupid enough to drink it, they need to learn a lesson. Why would
you want to drink it anyway? Not like you can see it glowing in your fat
ass stomachs. Common sense would tell you not to drink glow stick juice so
if you are dumb enough to think its safe to do so, you probably don't need
to be alive anyway.
