A man in Japan decided to tape a bunch of Mentos to his body and jump into a tub full of Coke Zero, because that's exactly what the internet needed—right?

His name is Hajime, and even though he posted the video over a year ago it seems to be going viral over the last few days, being viewed over 6 million times. Many are wondering why this man would even think of doing this, let alone filming the entire thing.

But if things like this didn't happen, would the internet be nearly as interesting as it is today?

Check out what happens in the video, but don't try this at home—because sticky.
