Photographer boils camera to get footage of poaching an egg (VIDEO)

A photographer has captured oddly captivating underwater video of what an egg looks like as it is poached.

The video was posted on YouTube a few days ago and had racked up 32-thousand views by Monday morning.

“Yes, it is true I boiled my GoPro to get you this footage,” wrote the photographer on reddit.

After watching the video several viewers asked whether the camera survived the boiling experience.

The photographer said yes.  Then explained it this way on reddit:

I placed the gopro in the standard underwater case it comes with and when the air inside the case got too hot it expanded causing the case to fracture creating a leak, this was towards the end so as soon as it happened I pulled it out before much water could get in, anyway when I took it out the case the LCD screen was blacked out and the camera was very hot and unresponsive.... honestly thought I broke it, once it cooled down though it started to work again and to my surprise it now works fine and saved the video footage!
