Back in 2009, an Illinois man named Ronald Ball claimed that he found a whole mouse inside his can of Mountain Dew.
PepsiCo, the creators of Mountain Dew, said the claim was preposterous because Mountain Dew would have totally dissolved that rat into a “jelly-like substance,” by the time that can reached Ball’s lips.
The case was dismissed and Mountain Dew fans were left with the comfort of knowing their radioactive-looking drink might not contain mice, but is strong enough to completely tear apart an entire one if need be.
But talk is cheap, so a genius actually tested this Mountain Dew mouse theory. He placed a dead mouse in a jar, filled it up with Mountain Dew, closed it up and let it sit for 37 days.
Wouldn’t you know it, the mouse really did dissolve into a disgusting “jelly-like substance.”
