Exploding a Watermelon With Rubber Bands

In this video from 2008, a group of Korean men did some myth-busting of their own by testing a watermelon’s strength against rubber bands. According to redditor john_jones_, the opening text can be translated to “there’s a myth that says a watermelon will explode with 50 rubber bands … will it?” Over 500 rubber bands later, the group finds out the explosive answer.
