I see what you mean and agree that it might not be the right application. I specifically brought it up for this reason, as it had been suggested to me back in July when they first happened, to use dry ice on them.

Still Andrew, your video is great and shows the results very well for the correct application.

Where did you buy the compressed gas in a can? It is CO2 correct?

Of course, some Walmart store are now requiring ID to prove 18 or older, when buying compressed air, since some people have caused problems from huffing it.
