Ever tried to break open an egg underwater? Well, these divers did and had the time of their lives as a result. Trust these guys to turn an activity as mundane as breaking an egg into so much fun!

In this video filmed by the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences as part of their ‘Water Moves’ series, watch what happens when a raw egg is cracked open underwater at 60 feet below the surface. A diver cracks open an egg and carefully releases its content into the sea water. Lo and behold! The egg white and the yolk remain intact and maintain their ovoid shape!

The egg looks like a mini tennis ball and does not disintegrate even as the diver gently bounces it on his palms. How does this happen? When broken underwater, the water exerts pressure on the egg white and yolks helping to maintain its shape.

Ever wondered what would happen if you cracked an egg 60 feet under the water?
