YouTuber Fills Bathtub With Orbeez, Destroys Neighborhood Sewage System [Video]

Police have apparently been trying to track down the culprit — and they only need look on social media.

A French YouTuber landed himself in multicolored hot water after a video prank backfired spectacularly.

Cyril Schreiner posted a series of videos documenting what happens when you fill a bathtub full of Orbeez – but you don’t have an exit strategy.

The tiny colorful beads — popular among children and click-hungry vloggers — are made of super-absorbent polymers that suck up the water around them, making them swell to dozens of times their original size.

A French YouTuber landed himself in multicolored hot water after a video prank backfired spectacularly.

Cyril Schreiner posted a series of videos documenting what happens when you fill a bathtub full of Orbeez – but you don’t have an exit strategy.

The tiny colorful beads — popular among children and click-hungry vloggers — are made of super-absorbent polymers that suck up the water around them, making them swell to dozens of times their original size.

His attempts to clean it up using a vacuum cleaner don’t go any better, as the appliance dies with a loud bang and starts smoking, drawing even higher pitched screams.

When his neighbor knocks with a handful of the balls that have clogged her drain however, his voice drops many octaves as he attempts to sound calm and clueless.

When a follower suggests pouring salt down his drain and waiting ten minutes, it seems successful, until a murky brown liquid begins sputtering back up into his bathroom.

Yammering rapidly in panicked French throughout his misadventure, he is at times hard to understand — although the word ‘merde’ is clearly heard on more than one occasion.

Venturing out into the garden, he uncovers a drain where he finds hundreds more of the ubiquitous beads; when he heads to the street he even finds the shores and drains all clogged with the now-mucky brown swelling substance.

In the end, Schreiner claims he even received a letter from City Hall advising that police are on the hunt for the culprit — who they would find easily enough if they checked social media.

Some followers claimed the stunt was all set up; but there can be no denying the mess he made was real either way.
