Man's ice cream plops out onto counter when he tries to prove how thick it is

All Chris Erni wanted to do was prove how dense his ice cream was – but this ended in disaster.

The shop worker in the Philippines had bought some ice cream from a stall around the corner and started joking around with his friends.

"We tried to turn the ice cream upside down as the advertisement says that it's so thick it won't drop," he says.

He turns the dessert upside-down several times and it seemingly amazed it stays put – before the ice cream plops our onto the counter.

He immediately scoops it back into his cup while his friend howls with laughter.

The video was filmed on October 10 and went viral on Facebook the next day, picking up 2m views.
