    Chris showing up being like, 'I got here as soon as I heard' with his jacket still on and then being the ONLY person that agrees with Claire that this is a horrible idea and is way too hard is the best part of the video

    9:56 tbh I’ve been watching this channel for a long time now. I had no clue y’all were in New York. Like I knew somewhere in the east coast but WOW. Hello from Los Angeles California! My 7 year old nephew is fascinated with all the buildings in New York and has actually been in that building/took a picture at the top when his parents went on a business trip to NYC.
    I wanna go there lol.

    You could use an isi canister and use co2 charges on a hot sugar syrup mixture while constantly shaking to ensure it didn’t harden/set all at the bottom. They claim they can handle 50 bars of pressure which is around 725 psi.
    Then depressurization and hopefully some of the glasses have been trapped in the hard sugar.
    Wear goggles just in case?

    Okay, great video, super funny and everything else but... Am I the only one thinking Claire and Brad are flirting? I don't know, I just look at them and think there's so much attraction between them(?) and I think I love them together. I might be wrong though.
