  • - Oh, it kind of... it looks fun.

  • I'm just gonna go for it.

  • Oh, it didn't get... I didn't add water!

  • - Hey, Inga?

  • - What's up?

  • - You ready to do another kid science experiment?

  • - I am ready.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - Have you heard of elephant toothpaste?

  • - I have only heard of it

  • because I saw this viral video

  • where this guy made one that was huge

  • and it just like-

  • - Yes.

  • - went up into the sky.

  • - Yes, it looks cool.

  • It's very fun.

  • The only problem is we don't have instructions

  • on how to make it.

  • We just have the ingredients.

  • So Inga and I are going to see

  • who can make elephant toothpaste.

  • Divide us.

  • - Do you know why it's called elephant toothpaste?

  • - It's just such a large amount of toothpaste.

  • It must be for an elephant.

  • (elephant trumpets)

  • - [Inga] No.

  • - I'm pretty sure there's no more logic to it than that.

  • - Okay.

  • - We're gonna have about 10 minutes to put this together.

  • - All right, let's do this.

  • (dramatic music)

  • - All right, I'm gonna put these on,

  • cause we're dealing with chemicals here.

  • - So we have some old friends here,

  • like this little guy and this-

  • - [Narrator] As Inga and I try to complete

  • this fifth grade science experiment.

  • - Oh wait, I don't want to do that yet.

  • - [Narrator] Actual kid experts

  • (mumbling)

  • are going to tell you how you actually

  • make elephant toothpaste.

  • - This is what you need.

  • - Hydrogen peroxide.

  • - Yeast.

  • - Dish soap.

  • - And food coloring.

  • - A little hot water.

  • - And then a flask.

  • First you need 240 milliliters of hydrogen peroxide.

  • - Okay so next 60 millimeters of dish soap.

  • (dramatic music)

  • - Oh, I didn't measure that.

  • - Pour the hydrogen peroxide, dish soap

  • and food coloring into the bottle.

  • One, two, three, four, five.

  • - I think the yeast is the rising agent.

  • - I don't cook really so I think yeast,

  • I think yeast infection.

  • - Next in a separate container.

  • - Now we're going to make 7.5 milliliters of active yeast

  • with a little hot water.

  • - And then give them a little time. At least 5 minutes.

  • (dance music)

  • - You know what? It smells like a beer.

  • - I feel like it's not activating the right way.

  • - They probably don't tell you that when you're a kid,

  • because they don't want you thinking about beer

  • as a fifth grader.

  • - Should I add more?

  • Okay. I'm just going to test this out.

  • I don't know if you can give me anything.

  • - You're doing a mini test right now?

  • - Yeah.

  • - Okay I'm going to do a mini test too.

  • - I just need more quantities of stuff.

  • - Wait.

  • - Wait. It's going up.

  • - It's slowly...

  • - That's a really good sign so...

  • - Are you about ready to do it?

  • - Yeah. I'm going to do the actual thing now.

  • - Finally pour the yeast mixture into the bottle

  • and then you got elephant toothpaste.

  • - Ready.

  • - And-

  • - Go!

  • - Go!

  • (screaming)

  • - Yeah!

  • That was like toothpaste. That was like a toothpaste right?

  • - You can keep adding color to it I think too.

  • - Oh wait really?

  • - Yeah.

  • - Wait this is the coolest thing ever.

  • Oh my God! Look at that you guys.

  • - Ah, man.

  • Honestly Inga, I feel like this is the closest to correct

  • I've gotten and it was mostly because you said the thing

  • about yeast stuff.

  • - Activated.

  • - So how does the chemical reaction

  • behind elephant toothpaste work?

  • - Well the hydrogen peroxide

  • that slowly breaks down into oxygen and water.

  • - And to make the reaction happen faster,

  • we add a catalyst; yeast.

  • - The oxygen gas turns into bubbles.

  • - And bubbles plus dish soap will make it foamy.

  • And that's how you make-

  • - [Both} Elephant Toothpaste.

  • - All right. Well, I think Ingo and I learned a lot.

  • So hopefully now

  • you guys can make elephant toothpaste at home.

  • Even if you're a dumb, dumb adult like us.

  • All right. Bye.

  • - Bye.

  • (upbeat music)

- Oh, it kind of... it looks fun.
