A $20 bet turned into a viral sensation for this Ohio student.

Sydney Fowls, was flying on Southwest airlines this past month when her cousin bet her to check a pool noodle with her. The now viral video is hilarious because it shows the many airline employees and customers reactions to seeing the pool float on the conveyor belts.

The video gained so much traction that when Fowls was coming home from her trip, Southwest Airlines made it a total event! They even gave her her very own Southwest Airlines pool noodle.

My pool noodle made it back home to Ohio! Thank you Southwest Airlines for everything you did for me! @flysouthwest @junebug2433 #viral

This is the type of nonsense hilarious news I love to see when I need a good smile. And good to know, if you don’t want to shell out $3 for a pool float on vacation, you can always check it.
