What Happens to Champagne in a Microwave

Watch a bunch of stuff explode in slow motion

Common sense dictates that you should never put metals in the microwave, so of course some professionals went and put everything but the kitchen sink into the microwave and filmed everything getting zapped in slow motion.

It starts off slow with aluminum foil, a raw egg, a tomato, cream cheese, and a lime.

But then there's a tropical punch juice packet, a lightbulb, a whole watermelon, a CD, and an entire bottle of champagne.

Of course, this turns out to be an ad for Moe's Southwest Grill, but it's worth the explosions. And as usual, "Do not try this at home. Especially if you like to see, smell, hear, touch, talk, and breathe."
