Buzz Gets Nico Adjemian to Take Banana/Sprite Challenge
If you haven't heard of the banana/Sprite challenge, it's gotten big over the past few weeks. It even has it's own Wikipedia page:
The Banana Sprite challenge is a challenge to quickly eat two bananas and drink one can of Sprite without vomiting. There are other versions of the challenge, but the suggested premise is that the body cannot digest both substances at the same time.
Is there some kind of chemical reaction that causes a volcanic eruption in the digestive tract? Maybe the potassium in the bananas reacts violently with the iguana urine in the Sprite?
In the spirit of Mythbusters and Jackass we needed to test this ourselves. Our frequent guest and unofficial 4th member of the MoSho, comedian Nico Adjemian volunteered (was told he had to) to take the challenge. Whether or not what happens is a chemical reaction or not? We'll leave that up to you to decide.
