Not to be outdone by Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Mountain Dew has now made it very clear that their fizzy-neon-green beverage is as good at dissolving flesh as “Dip” was at dissolving toons in the beloved film.
As a warning I do have to say that if your stomach is on the weak side, avoid this video especially if you have just eaten. For the rest of us psychos this is right up our alley of the horrid and unusual that we love, right?
This all started when an individual named Roland Ball claimed that he had found a rodents body in his can of yummy Mountain Dew. Ball actually filed suit against Mountain Dew claiming that he had drank some of the beverage and become ill only to discover that there was indeed one of Mickey Mouse’s cousins floating around within the can.
Pepsi came out in defense of their product stating that the scenario that Ball claimed was actually impossible considering the mouse’s carcass would have dissolved in the fizzy fluid and would not have allowed for recognizable mouse remains. It would have instead turned into jelly.
Personally, I think that it is far scarier that Mountain Dew would dissolve the mouse completely. I spent many a caffeine fueled nights playing video games while chugging cases of Mountain Dew in my younger days. To look back and wonder how many mice I could have possible slurped down unbeknownst to me is far more disturbing than finding an actual dead mouse in the can.
But, I digress. Someone came out of the woodwork and actually did an experiment to see if Pepsi’s claim was indeed true. Would the mouse really dissolve or was Pepsi trying to save their butts? Was Ball full of shit?
The results become clear in the video below. Again don’t say I didn’t warn you. The experiment will be fascinating to some and disgusting to others. Whatever the case may be, I’m going to go get myself a can Mountain Dew. Do the Dew folks!
‘Cloverfield’ Film Finds a Director To Helm Next Entry
We have seen an incredible three Cloverfield-based films so far. The latest being Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix. The latest in the series also managed to lose steam for the secretive franchise. It went too far into the explanation of secrets that we had seen in the first two films. Once the wizard is discovered behind the curtain the game loses its momentum and fun. The upcoming Cloverfield film has found its director from Under the Shadow’s Babak Anvari.
The director’s Under the Shadow was a great piece of horror. It was entirely effective in its scares and story.
There is no word on where the fourth Cloverfield film will take audiences. But, that is for the best. These films have always been shrouded in secrecy and that is what has made them fun. Well… the first two films anyway.
The synopsis for Cloverfield went like this:
As a group of New Yorkers (Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel, Odette Yustman) enjoy a going-away party, little do they know that they will soon face the most terrifying night of their lives. A creature the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city, leaving death and destruction in its wake. Using a handheld video camera, the friends record their struggle to survive as New York crumbles around them.
We are happy to see that Anvari is going to helm this entry. We can’t wait to see what he brings to the franchise and to see what direction this entry takes.

Netflix’s ‘Dahmer’ Already in The Number One Spot
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story only just arrived on Netflix earlier this week and it has already managed to move to Netflix’s number one spot. The 10-episode nightmare goes into nightmarish details of the Milwaukee Monster. In fact, the details that the series dives into have caused a backlash among some viewers. There has been an outcry by some viewers that beg audiences not to romanticize the Dahmer just because Evan Peters is playing him.
The new series has a score of 91 on Rotten Tomatoes and that score doesn’t appear to be going down anytime soon.
The synopsis for Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story goes like this:
Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer gruesomely took the lives of seventeen innocent victims. DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a series that exposes these unconscionable crimes, centered around the underserved victims and their communities impacted by the systemic racism and institutional failures of the police that allowed one of America’s most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous spree in plain sight for over a decade.
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is now streaming on Netflix.
