  • - Could you imagine being on the bus

  • and somebody whips out a can of air?

  • - So since here at Buzzfeed we are out of ideas,

  • today we're trying expensive air.

  • - I honestly think it's the craziest thing

  • I have ever heard in my life.

  • - If this air is really expensive,

  • I do expect it to give me all the oxygen intake

  • that I need for the month and also maybe

  • if it gets me a little high that'd be cool.

  • - I'm very picky about what I breathe

  • so maybe I'll pay for it.

  • It depends on how good it is.

  • - Edie, you got that kinda money?

  • This is like drugs.

  • - It's so light.

  • - It's so light, I'm like, "There's nothing in here."

  • - Why?

  • - Instructions, open cap and enjoy.

  • - What?

  • Ah, I figured it out!

  • - Alright, guys, we're gonna sniff some air.

  • What the heck is this?

  • - It was literally like air.

  • - I don't taste anything, I don't feel anything.

  • - It's flip-flopping air, it's air, this is air.

  • This is normal air, it tastes like the same air

  • that we are breathing right now.

  • - I think these facts are about to be, like, depressing.

  • - According to the World Health Organization,

  • air pollution poses the greatest

  • environmental risk to human health.

  • And in 2016, the majority of outdoor

  • air pollution-related deaths occurred in Asia.

  • - I used to live in Korea and I remember during soccer games

  • we had to test the yellow dust that was outside

  • because if it was too much we couldn't play.

  • - That's really sad.

  • Air pollution is considered the

  • fourth-largest threat to human health,

  • following blood pressure, dietary risks, and smoking.

  • - I think it's even worse because smoking is by choice.

  • You can choose not to but air, what do you do?

  • Stay home?

  • - Yeah, and even then the air comes in from outside.

  • - Some scientists even believe that

  • air pollution causes birth defects.

  • - So in 2016, 2.6 million deaths were

  • linked to air pollution in the house,

  • and 4.3 million deaths were linked to outdoor air pollution.

  • That's six million people in one year?

  • Now I'm really sad and I shouldn't be wasting this air.

  • - I feel like there's no fixing it.

  • We done (beep) up.

  • Just don't have kids, everyone.

  • - I grew up in China until I was 23.

  • By the time I was 18, like, the air in Beijing just,

  • like, you can't really see each other

  • when you, like, walk towards people.

  • I feel fine so far but who know if there's

  • something it's done to me, you know?

  • - I understand why there's canned air.

  • Looking at these facts, pollution is

  • a big problem that we have.

  • - It sounds silly to pay for air but if you're

  • in an environment where you literally can't breathe

  • or there's something wrong with your air or air pollution,

  • this is a temporary fix to your problem.

  • - Moral of the story, treat our planet better

  • so we don't need canned air.

  • - This is a great product for people that really need it.

  • It should really open up conversations about air pollution

  • and what we can do to make and create

  • a better environment for all people to live

  • because seven million people dying a year,

  • that's not good so let's figure it out together.

- Could you imagine being on the bus
