You've never seen a Stretch Armstrong like this.

Well, this is an extremely random yet endlessly entertaining video from the, well, The King of Random YouTube channel. If you like to watch your childhood toys experimented on, this one is perfect for you.

You might have never played with one, but might be familiar with Armstrong's stretchy antics thanks to the internet since it is a pretty popular toy that was first introduced in 1976.

Unlike a normal Armstrong, Stretch Armstrong is made of latex rubber filled with gelled corn syrup, which means it can retain shape for a short time before shrinking to its original shape after being stretched a lot.

In the video, they experiment with gallium, which is a non-toxic metal that melts at approximately 85 degrees Fahrenheit, by melting it down and injecting it into a Stretch Armstrong doll by using a large hypodermic needle.

The question they are trying to answer is this: Will the galium take the shape of the doll? Or will it get confined by the gel inside the doll? Well, let's find out.
