What Happens When You Drop A Red Hot Ball Of Nickel Onto A Brick Of Velveeta? (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

What happens when you drop a red hot ball of nickel onto a brick of Velveeta? Well, pretty much what you'd expect. There's a lot of smoke, an insane hissing/squealing sound, and some charred beyond recognition processed cheese product.

But the real, unexpected joy of this video was the instant queso volcano that eventually issues forth from the yellow block. Once the nickel ball burrows itself deeper and deeper into the brick of Velveeta, the melty, gooey "cheese" has nowhere else to go but up and out. It's a neat party trick if you have a ball of nickel, a blow torch, a block of Velveeta and a pretty serious venting system. You should probably not try this at home, especially with a Velveeta shortage on the way.
