How to catch a subterranean catfish using mentos, eggs, and Coca-cola

While I was familiar with the internet art of catfishing, I was not aware of the practice of catching catfish by hand, which is apparently called "noodling." Then I saw this video. And now I question what I've been doing with my life (moreso than usual).

I don't know what this is, or why it works. But I'm honestly surprised I never did this when I was in middle school. And somewhat disappointed with myself.

I desperately want to believe that this horse mask Mentos commercial is actually from a 1992 episode of the Swedish Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as the description says, if only because this is just the kind of baloney that pushes crates of sugar pills. I'd also like to believe that this was made by Mentos's marketing department in a brilliant comeback to the top of the tubed candy industry. However, I think this is actually just some really brilliant independent filmmakers hitting me right in the nostalgia.
