I have seen the reaction. This is another demonstration that widely circulated. I was a bit surprised to see where the video hit the "popular" press. This video is on a bit larger scale than the one that typically gets circulated. I have seen a smaller "snake" version that usually shows up around Halloween.

Of course anything that gives off SO2 should be done in a hood. Besides that I should report that a colleague who did this as a demo rinsed the residue and disposed of it in a wastebasket--which later caught the paper on fire. Surprise, surprise! Guess it wasn't rinsed enough.
