This guy fixed his sink with ramen—so just how healthy can it be?
Who knew instant noodles were so multi-functional?
Typically one has to whip out ramen after they burned a hole in their pocket. The internet just found out that ramen can also be a good fix for when you have a literal hole in your sink or car.
In the video, a man shoves the instant ramen into the sink’s crack, pours some kind of adhesive on the salty mass, chisels it to a smooth finish, and then paints it white to match the sink. He also takes a moment to sprinkle on the seasoning that comes with the noodles.
An Instagram account for Brazilian company Maria Fernanda Interiors shared the video on Tuesday, citing the architecture and humor account Arquitettando as its source. Someone then shared the clip to Twitter.
Between the two platforms, over 10 million people have viewed the video. The internet was baffled.
“Is this video real? What happens when you try to run hot water? And, why did he use the seasoning packet?” Twitter users asked.
So the flavour could sink in😂

The video was enough to make some Twitter users swear off ramen altogether.

The buck doesn’t stop there. Apparently, ramen is something everyone should keep in their toolboxes.
On Wednesday, Aj Strub posted a video on Facebook of someone using ramen to fix a ding in their car.

What else can ramen do? Give the internet enough time, and we’ll be sure to find out.
