United States of America.
Various shots of a man standing at a laboratory bench and demonstrating the effects of liquid oxygen on different objects. A steak is frozen solid, a rubber ball breaks like an eggshell after being dipped in the liquid.
The man puts his bowler hat on a vat of the liquid oxygen, then 'drinks' a small amount of it. He blows the oxygen out onto the hat, then bangs it on the table - the crown comes off and the brim disintegrates. The man puts what remains of the hat on his head and walks off.
