Aug 17, 2010: Foam Flood

Miami this time, and intentional. Back in March, Sony rented a machine that would produce 2.5 million liters of foam per minute, to shoot a commercial in Miami. They flooded a whole block, but some foam clouds got picked up by the wind and carried away. I've no clue how they cleaned it up.

Rabies!

Reminds me of the foam hangar IOTD. I would have linked to it, but most of the pictures are gone.

Someone really sucks at pouring beer.

"...Sony rented a machine that would produce 2.5 million liters of foam..."

Two questions:
1) Why does such a machine even exist in our world? I cannot think of any benefit to producing so much foam, so quickly. That's like saying, "I've invented a machine that can pull the erasers off of 100 pencils a minute!"

2) Where does one go to rent that foam machine? I went to both Lowe's and Home Depot, but neither of them have it. The guy at Lowe's even called me a perve and threatened to call the cops on me.

All I can say is HERPES!
I've heard (in a completely anti-Snopes way) that it's a huge spreader of coldsores.

So there.

Oil breaks the surface tension and the bubbles collapse themselves. There is very little matter involved.

Aside from making commercials interesting and midgets disappear from view, they're used for putting out fires in places like airplane hangers.

If you can make enough of it, fast enough, they do a great job *and* unlike Halon, don't destroy the ozone layer or kill people who are caught in it.

But the you have soap, probably glycerin, and now oil, all over everything including the inside of those stores. How do they clean all that up?


SPUCK  Wednesday Aug 18 06:19 AM

They use gasoline bubbles and a match.

That also eliminates the Groping Perves that lurk in the bubbles.



Adak  Wednesday Aug 18 08:49 AM

The bubbles have a fairly short life span. You can get rid of them very quickly with the right spritz, or fanned compound, but they will burst naturally all by themselves.



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Aug 18 10:35 AM

Bubbles are like pigeons, it's not them, it's what they leave behind.
