Good lick finding calcium bicarbonate, suckers.

Sorry. It's a fake.
Look closely and you'll see the "water balls" are actually solid objects that refract light just like water. They are nearly invisible in the water. When he runs his fingers through the solution, you'll see them moving around in there.
They're some type of polymer beads. My nephew got a pack of them in a little science kit I bought for him. They look like little granules but when you put them in water they start to swell to 300 times their original size.
I'VE BEEN BETRAYED

If it makes you feel better, here's a recipe that actually works:
Stuff you need:
- Borax (a laundry booster found in the detergent aisle)
- Mucilage glue* (Found at art supply & hobby stores. Clear is better, but amber works, too)
- Food coloring
- Sealable sandwich bag
- Measuring cup & spoons
- Containers for mixing stuff
* White glue works, too, but the slime comes out very different
1 - Mix one tablespoon of Borax in 1/2 cup of water until Borax is completely dissolved.
2 - Add food coloring to mixture for desired color. (skip this step for clear ectoplasm)
3 - Thoroughly mix 1/4 cup glue with 1/4 cup water.
4 - Combine Borax mixture & glue mixture in sealable sandwich bag. Remove as much air as you can from the bag & seal it.
5 - Knead the bag thoroughly mixing the compound for about five or ten minutes.
6 - Empty out the excess water and remove the remaining goop from the bag. It will be loose & sticky at first, but will become more resilient as it is worked.
The ectoplasm will, in fact, become tougher & tougher as it is played with, just as chewing gum or bread dough becomes tougher as it is worked. The polymer strands get more twisted & tangled resulting in a more rubbery mass.
Store the ectoplasm in the bag or other airtight container to prevent drying. Keeping it in the fridge will also help it last longer. Throw it away when you start to notice mold spots.

This is so cool. It'd be great to make this stuff, then get drunk and mess with it.

The obvious explanation is magic.

5 for cool science, -1 for every other thing about this motherfucking video

Step one: find a liquid material and a solid material with roughly the same colour and refractive index.
Step two: make a joke video using the two items from step one.

LOL @ all the people who will actually try this.
Clever troll is clever.

He kind of shot himself in the foot, though, telling people to use calcium bicarbonate. Maybe he meant calcium carbonate. (stomach antacid) He did, after all, refer to iodized salt as "ionized" salt.
Still, it looks way more convincing than glowing Mountain Dew.
this is fake? i want my stars back :(

water balls contain 0% water

This is the same recipe I use to cook up my meth.

Mine didn't work. :'(

I knew this was fake since he spelled "balls" with an "s". Had it been, "ballz" I might have believed this was possible

Sodium bicarbonate + acetic acid = calcium acetate! Oh wow, it's so obvious, he's discovered how to transubstantiate sodium into calcium!
