A “Cherry Flavored Hazmat Spill” was initiated in my garage as a can of Cherry Coke gave its life for the sake of a good photo…

I tried the new “Coke Life” and by try, I mean I bought a six pack of mini cans and shot at them.

The size of the can to the pressure of the coke to the size of the pellet, seamed to put on a great show.

The problem, other then my poor marksmanship, was the cans tended to spin and flip and generally give some ill-tempered behaviors, making a good shot harder then it had to be.

Its not hard to imagine that if you shoot a pressurized can from a gun lined up with your eyes, that a jet of sugary liquid will then spray you in the face.

And a lot of times the can will just fly away.

So I built a quick clamping jig to keep the can under control, and to allow me to get a good shot.
Unfortunately I had “blown” through all my mini cans, and had to resort to the good stuff.

Lets boot up our super-computers to see if we can make anything out of this mess…

The sweet smell of Cherry Coke fizz did not ease my mood as my entire garage and photo equipment became a sticky mess.

Maybe next time Ill shoot up some detergent to clean up the place!
