Skillful gum bubble blower


Amy Crehore found this video of a girl blowing a gum bubble in a bubble in a bubble in a bubble.

  1. I don’t know what sort of malleable polymer concoction she has in her mouth, but it’s certainly not the bubble gum I’m familiar with.

  2. Never mind all that, does anyone else find the whole thing vaguely creepy? I can’t help but feel like I’m being tricked into watching some sort of fetish video.

  3. Never mind all that, does anyone else find the whole thing vaguely creepy?

    That tingling sensation in your bathing suit area is a normal healthy response.

  4. This is, of course, a fake. Real multiple bubble-blowers vanish from our space-time continuum upon completion of the fourth bubble.

  5. The Internet has always had loud dumb people, but I’ve never seen anything quite as bad as the people who comment on YouTube videos.

    xkcd

  6. …The real surprise so far is that this hasn’t degenerated into an innuendo contest. That must make Teresa’s job a lot easier for once :-)

    …That being said, if she really wants to impress *and* stimulate me, then she needs to tie a cherry stem into a knot and have it appear in the middle bubble.

  7. I would feel SO much better about watching this video at work if the girl looked like anything except an *exact* replica of Lolita.

  8. “I’ve never seen anything quite as bad as the people who comment on YouTube videos.”

    The average YouTube commenter is a jack jolly young male of an as yet unclassified species.

  9. The outer bubble should grow when the inner bubbles expand inside, but they do not. Something ain’t right in sexy bubble physics land…

  10. Strike that. Upon further examination, the outer bubble appears to grow proportionately. All is well in sexy bubble physics land. Go about your business.

  11. When I was 10 I did that sort of thing but managed to get 5 bubbles. The outer bubble wasn’t near as big as that one and the fifth bubble was only a couple inches across. I think it took 3 pieces of Bubble Yum. Didn’t have digital cameras or youtube back then so I have no proof.

  12. Given that I never managed to figure out how to blow gum bubbles at all, I’m suitably impressed.

    And, yeah, there’s something sensual about the whole thing, but of course that’s part of the appeal of gum generally. The short skirt and the hand along the flank take the video over into slightly suggestive, though I’m not sure that was intended. And on the Internet, lewd comments will be made at any opportunity… so I’m not surprised by the reported responses.

    (Let’s be honest; most male humans over the age of puberty are going to be somewhat turned on by the sight of a reasonably attractive young lady breathing heavily/carefully, and some will respond to a young lady doing just about anything. Basic ape instincts. Luckily, most of us also have the common sense to just sit back and appreciate.)

  13. I like to think of all the lewd and crass comments on the internet as coming from Gary Larson-esque matrons with horn-rimmed glasses and beehive hair.

  14. I am not aroused by this video at all (though I am quite impressed!) and yet even I immediately thought to myself “with skills like those it should be easy for her to get a blowjob.” I am a bad, bad person.

  15. Wait, was this porn? I think it was porn. It sure looked like porn to me. No, that can’t be right, BoingBoing wouldn’t direct me towards porn. It can’t have been porn. But sure felt like porn …

    (It was porn.)

  16. Yo dawg I know how you like gum so we put a bubble in your bubble so you can blow bubbles while you blow bubbles

  17. My first thought was Cheech’s line from the beginning of Up in Smoke, “Hey, Double Bubble! Hop in baby, I’ll give you a ride!”

    Then, as she kept blowing, I just thought, “whoa! the more the merri- wait, why am I aroused right now??”

  18. Whoa… on the second time I played this (yes, I played it more than once, darnit!) the video lagged and then suddenly went through in double time for a few seconds… suddenly got a whole lot more erotic.

    @ 27 Akheloios: +5 internets for you, sir!

  19. “…The real surprise so far is that this hasn’t degenerated into an innuendo contest. That must make Teresa’s job a lot easier for once :-)”

    Yes, indeed, I am impressed with the restraint shown by the commenters, here.

    Now, if anyone needs me, I’ll be in my bunk.

  20. Remember Groucho’s observation that “Love flies out the door when money comes innuendo.”

    And, yeah, I’ve gotta admit my second thought was “About three seconds after the end of that vid, she’s going to have to remove gum from some combination of face, hair, clothing, couch, and/or camera…”

    My third thought was “OK, what are the odds this is a nice bit of video magic?” I’ll believe nested bubbles, but I’m having trouble believing she isn’t having more trouble with gravity. Unless she’s inflating them with a heliox mixture, or they’re one heck of a lot thinner and/or carry one heck of a lot more surface tension than any gum bubbles I’ve seen…

  21. I’m torn.  The girl might be cute behind there, but I can’t tell because there’s a thoroughly chewed bolus slowly being ejected from her face.  Is this some kind of bizarre threat display?
