Lovely little video, I wish I had the time and energy to put together displays like this one. :-)

Spectacular. I've tried that with LiveSavers and seltzer water and never got a result near as cool.

And what do a couple of hundred liters of Coke cost? That was a pricey little display.

All Things Considered interviewed Fritz Grobe and Stephen Voltz (the creators of the Bellagio spectacle) on last night's show. They spent more than $500 on the supplies, and liken it to one of those things where you only have one chance, "... like filming blowing up a building".

"It was very much a dance." And they're working on something "bigger and better and higher", so stay tuned. :-)
