Christian Weninger, 12, Lauren Rollerson, 12 and (not pictured) Grace Weninger, 6, try the ol’ rubber band trick on a watermelon during their family’s July 4 festivities.
As the results of their experiment prove — and it’s on video too! — a watermelon will explode when wrapped at its equator with too many pressure-packed rubber bands.
Chandler City Councilman Jeff Weninger — father to Christian and Grace, uncle to Lauren — shared the video and image with the Tribune and his Twitter followers.
