Can anyone explain this?
I'm no science-whiz, but let me take a shot at it. When the water bottle is undisturbed, still from the factory, the oxygen is totally separated from the water at the top of the bottle. The near instant freezing has something to do with breaking the bonded water molecules and re-introducing the oxygen (in it's gaseous form) back into the water. I don't know if this is actually correct, it's just a guess.
Ok, after reading the video comments, it seems I was right. Cool (no pun intended).
