Coke and Lava Nikon D800 and Gopro

Freshly erupted lava can range from 700-1200 °C (1,300-2,200 °F). According to the manufacturers, Coca-Cola is best served at 4 °C (40 °F).
Photographer Bryan Lowry wondered (as so many of us do): “What would happen if a can of Coke crossed paths with molten lava?” He decided to stage an experiment on a volcano in Hawaii. One can had a small hole punctured in the top too prevent the aluminum can from exploding. The second can was left perfectly sealed. Lowry used a GoPro to capture the video and was not in any personal danger.
How do you think the cans will fare against the lava?

He dropped his bag on the floor

His thin dark face was
excited. "Do you mean to say that you've had one of them?"
I was interested. "They've been going about, then?"
"Yes. For some time."

Someone resented our coming here--someone
resented Joanna's bright young sophisticated beauty--someone
wanted to hurt. To take it with a laugh was perhaps the best
way--but deep down it wasn't funny.
