Watch thousands of ping pong balls flying launched by mousetraps

Pepsi celebrated the New Year with a cool visual experiment: They put thousands of ping pong balls on mousetraps, then they actioned one of the traps making the ball fall on the others triggering an epic chain reaction .

As reader Inane boy points out, the idea isn't new—maybe nothing is anymore. The same experiment was conducted in a much shorter scale in this 1954 documentary called Our Friend the Atom.

Visually impressive but you might want to edit the comment to say "hundreds" not "thousands". The impression of more is the result of mirrored walls.
