This has got to be one of the funniest things we’ve seen on the internet for some time.
Two women start drinking some ‘helium infused wine’ and, as they start talking their voices turn high-pitched, similar to when you inhale air from a balloon.
Sadly, however, the video, uploaded to Facebookby Levi Atkinson, has been labelled a fake because of the chemical make-up of helium.
Basically it’s impossible.
A more scientific explanation was posted by Snopes which said that it’s one of the least soluble gases in water.
The myth-busting website said ‘only about 0.0016 g of Helium would get dissolved in a litre of beer while, at the same conditions, 2.5 g of carbon dioxide is usually present in a litre of beer. This dissolved carbon dioxide is what releases slowly and creates the fizz. No slow fizz can be done with helium. Undissolved helium in beer would coalesce into one or two big bubbles and . ploop, it would go out as soon as the seal was broken.’
Basically it’s a bit of audio trickery that you can do on your own computer.
