Glowing Mountain Dew on Metacafe

Does anyone know what is reacting with the baking soda and peroxide? We haven't really gotten into the chemistry portion in Science class yet. Thanks!

We tried to replicate it  & it did not work. The only way we could get the same results was by using the insides of about 2 glow sticks. Too bad it doesn't work.

 Yes it's faked. The most likely way they did it is they extracted the ink from a yellow highlighter and then used an ultraviolet light.

Oh, how I detest liers. Apparently this is a "viral video" of sorts and uses glow stick fluid, and doesn't work: Stupid Liers
