Mentos (evidence of their brilliance) has put together a contest for Mentos Geyser videos at www.mentosgeyser.com. These videos are pretty much taking over the internet. Just do a search for Mentos on Youtube or Google Video, and you’ll see what I mean. Or take a look at my post from a little while back about that really impressive Mentos fountain. The contest doesn’t officially start until July 31st so the details are still a little sketchy, but prizes include: 1000 iTunes song downloads and a year supply of Mentos. I do wonder how much a “year’s supply” actually is. A year’s supply of Mentos for me is probably a little bit more than your average person. I tried this experiment quite a while back before there were a million and one videos of it on the internet (it also works with pixie stix). I’m going to have to think of some cool way of doing it again for this contest.
As I was looking at some videos for this post, I ran across this interview with a Mentos marketing guy regarding the recent spike in Mentos geyser videos.
