CrazyRussianHacker Finds Viral Sweet Spot With Boiled Cola

Not exactly scientific but eye-opening

A 20-ounce bottle of a certain leading brand of cola supposedly has 55 grams of sugar, but YouTube user CrazyRussianHacker—you know, the guy who taught us the most baller way to remove a shirt—is extremely skeptical.

To get to the bottom of the matter, he boiled down the facts (literally) to find the sticky sweet stuff that resides in each bottle. The shocking revelation has resonated, having been viewed 13.4 million times since he uploaded the clip June 3.

Also making this week's top 10 Web videos is Spent: Looking For Change, the latest documentary from director Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman). The AmEx-sponsored film also has the distinction of being the first movie distributed via digital news organization The Young Turks. The 40-minute flick has been viewed 7.1 million times since June 4.
