CHENNAI: We are all fascinated by films based on volcanoes and what happens when it erupts, here is a viral video shared by a Twitter user that shows us a man dropping a 30-kilogram bundle of organic waste on a lava lake.
The video was shared by a user named @historyinmemes on the platform with the caption, "Awakening a volcano by throwing a rock" (sic)
The video demonstrates an experiment involving a bundle of organic waste in an active volcano in Ethiopia, Erta Ale, to simulate what happens if a human falls into it. The video shows that the first layer of solidified ash that forms over the molten lava breaks and submerges the organic matter as it enters the lava lake. Then, the lava fountain bubbles are seen and they grow in response to the breakage.
Shared on November 10, the video has amassed 8.7 million views, 2,602 quote tweets, 18.1K retweets, and 192.3K likes on the platform.
"Now you know every time a volcano erupts there was a man-child who threw a rock for content," one user commented. Another user commented, "A visual representation of how the slightest inconvenience can trigger the lava in me. Cheers." A third comment read, "Musk buying Twitter". "Me throwing the latest “I told you so” at my husband," another user commented.
