If You Give Jimmy Fallon a Pool of Hi-C Ecto Cooler, He's Gonna Jump in It

Thanks to the new Ghostbusters movie, Hi-C recently resurrected the alarmingly green '90s snack time staple and Slimer's beverage of choice, Ecto Cooler. Although the drink is probably meant to cool you with a sweet wave of nostalgia, Jimmy Fallon has come up with a decidedly different approach: canon-balling into a giant pool of the stuff.

During a Wednesday taping of the Tonight Show, audience members dared Fallon to perform a canon ball jump into a pool in the middle of Rockefeller Center. Watch as Fallon initially pretends to chicken out when faced with the challenge, before ditching the studio to join a cheering crowd of spectators surrounding a pool outside. In the pool? Gallons and gallons of bright green Hi-C Ector Cooler. He hardly hesitates before plunging right in -- lapel microphone and all. 

Welp. That's one way to beat the heat wave.
