The science YouTuber Nick Uhas teamed up with one of 2019’s most viral stars, David Dobrik, to set the record for the “elephant toothpaste” science experiment. Dobrik first did the experiment on TikTok in 2018.
Dobrik’s first attempt used red foam and still spanned an impressive amount of Dobrik’s backyard.

In the new video, Uhas showed off the calculations, ingredients, and contraption he designed to make the biggest foam explosion possible. The group then released the catalyst that caused the ingredients below to expand rapidly into a towering volcano of blue foam.
The foam overtook Dobrik’s California home. The foam spilled over his glass-walled balcony and standing above his roof by the time the chemical reaction slowed to a stop.
