He also interviews Brent, a dive shop owner, who elaborates on these concepts and emphasizes the importance of clearing ears and avoiding deep breaths with compressed air. The video demonstrates the crushing pressure of deep water through an aluminum can experiment, but the speaker's personal experience with a 20-pound weight in a pool is presented as enjoyable and creative, without addressing the potential dangers of deep diving with heavy weights.
