Popping a Mercury Filled Balloon in Slow Motion

(youtube) Detailed footage of the 6lb. mercury balloon pop showing the interesting splash from the mercury as it hits the bottom of the tub. I added some sound effects just for fun. Mercury is nearly 14 times heavier than water and is heavier than lead.
-Don't try this at home- Mercury is dangerous at high exposure levels.
