Could a copious amount of cotton candy dissolving in a tank of water represent your life? On the internet, anything is possible.
A now-viral video features two people hurling a ridiculous amount of cotton candy into a tank with water. The fluffy delicacy simply dissipates as soon as it hits the water. The clip is so oddly satisfying to watch that it has attracted over 13 million views on Twitter.
The video is not even accompanied by a funny or genius caption. It simply reads, “This is what happens when you put cotton candy in water.” Nothing special, right?

Yet, Twitter users saw meme potential in the water’s ability to serve as a never-ending cotton candy pit.
“This is what happen with your money when you play Yugioh,” one Twitter user wrote.
