Confetti Bomb Prank!

Confetti Bomb Prank!

A soda bottle bomb...!!

Supplies

The supply list for this prank is short and they are easy to find:

1. 35mm canister

They will give you these for free at Walgreens or most one hour film development labs.

The white ones with the tighter lids work better than the black ones.

2. Can of compressed air

Your common air duster - found at most offices. Used for blowing the dust out of computers and keybaords.

3. Some confetti

I bought some for a dollar to make it stand out more in the video, but those holes from the hole punch work great!

Fill the canister

This part is simple - just turn the can of air upside down, and then spray a little of the liquid inside.

WARNING The liquid inside is extremely cold and extremely flammable. Caution is advised, especially when dealing with something that can both cause frostbite and severe burns.

Once the liquid is inside, quickly dump as much confetti inside as you can, without getting any in the way of the lid. (If the lid cannot close tightly, the pressure will not be able to build.)

Finally, close the lid tightly, set it next to your intended victim and then quickly walk away!

Kaboom!

Now comes the kaboom.

It will take anywhere from 5 seconds to a good minute to explode, depending on several factors.

If you spray a lot of liquid inside, it will take longer to evaporate and build up pressure.

If the ambient air temperature is high, the liquid inside will likely evaporate much faster.

For a bigger boom, turn the canister upside down and use more liquid. Stand clear of it if you do. The resulting explosion is pretty violent, especially for a little canister.

Watch the video again to see what I mean. I filmed that in my garage, where the ceiling is about 15 feet high. Listen to how fast the canister bounced off the ceiling and then the floor again.

Equipment
you will need:
  • 1 Film canister or air tight container with a pop open lid.
  • 1 Cardboard sheet (thin depth)
  • 1 Plastic sandwich bag
  • Some Vinegar
  • Some Bicarbonate of Soda (or Baking Soda)
  • Some Powder-flour, pepper, allspice....
  • Some Celotape or sticky tape
  • Some string
  • 1 pair of scissors
  • 2 Hands
  • 1 Bomb site
Cutting
1. Cut the cardboard to the circumference (a circle the same size of the inside)of the film canister.

2. Hold the corner of the plastic bag against the canister(so that the corner is pointing straight down) and cut just below the top of the canister to form a cone.(Thank you James M)

3. Cut some string (or any material like it) that is about 10cm or 4 inches long then take the celotape and stick one end of the string to the canister and one end to the lid leaving a bit of slack in the middle so that the top can blow off.

The Grenade
4. Fill the corner of the bag, a bit over half the way up with bicarbonate of Soda. Place the bag into the canister so that the open end is facing upwards and being careful not to spill any Bicarb into the vinegar.

The powder

Carefully slowly push the cardboard into the canister so that it totally seals the top of the canister and place the circular piece of card on top of it.

Then take the powder and pour it on to the top of the cardboard up until it reaches the top of the canister then carefully put the lid on making sure that the grenade is always up right until throwing.

Priming, throwing and EXPLODING!!!!!!!

To prime the grenade shake it up and down the delay on mine was about 2 seconds so throw very very quickly mine nearly blew up and peppered me in my face and my second one did not blow up after 2 lots of shaking and then did one almighty explosion.
