Urban square spontaneous: Mass-created fountain

In this ongoing series of spontaneous creative happenings that are attracted to the public stage that is the urban square, 1500 students gathered in Place Ladeuzeplein, Leuven, Belgium to create their own instantaneous Bellagio Fountain… out of the infamous Coke and mentos, thus breaking the world record for… most mento-coke fountains at once.

Ok, it’s not the kind of thing that jives with the Story of Stuff, but whoever has a problem with it should take it up with the Committee for the Termination of National Apathy.

Check out the fizz-filled video here. Note that the beauty of the surrounding square plays no small part in adding to the grandeur of the relatively trivial but eternally memorable event.
