    Can't get the video to work but..........

    Take a 20oz mountain dew & pour it out till there's only about a 1/4" left in the bottom of the bottle.....

    Then get 3 cap fulls of peroxide...Then just the tip of a teaspoon of baking soda, pour them in the bottle and shake vigorously...you will see just how bright it will light up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! probably for those guys who use alot of weight and want to keep the bait suspended over a hole, try it it should work, if not use it for a night light in the boat instead of a flashlight !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Best to store your glow sticks in the freezer.

    Best to store them in a cool dry place. I had some in the boat for 2 years and they still worked. Had some more that was left under the seat of the truck. They did not do as well. Heat will cut the shelf life of them.

    Guys don't waste your $ or Dew - this is a hoax. Run a search on Google with "mountain dew baking soda".

    If you want to have more fun duct tape the pop bottle to a brick. Then empty it out and put a few pieces of dry ice and fill it about half full of water and screw the lid on tight. Throw it in the lake and wait a couple of minutes for it to explode. Then scoop up the fish.
