CHEMISTRY LAB — If you love science, fire, tornadoes or just really cool things, watch this video.

The video comes from Dustin Skye, an artist who lives in Oregon and specializes in bubbles. Yes, bubbles. Like the ones you blow with a little wand and a bottle of soap. But Skye's bubbles are significantly cooler because his involve fire tornadoes.

In the short, 61-second video, Skye blows a bubble, and then fills it with "butane gas, smoke and mouth-blown currents," according to Gizmodo. Slowly, a tornado shape forms inside the bubble, which Skye then lights on fire, creating the "fire tornado" that eventually destroys the bubble.

It's very cool, and probably not something you'd expect from a video that starts out with a soap bubble. There's not much to it, but it's a little science lesson for the day, and if you have a free minute, I think you'll enjoy the video.
