Some adventurers on Thursday posted a video of them gutting a giant pumpkin and then floating it down the Colorado River near Moab.

How well it went is in the eye of the beholder. The video shows the pumpkin riding low in the water. The final shot suggests the vessel met its end on some rock.

On the other hand, getting a 1,200-pound fruit to float at all is an accomplishment.
