Let’s ask ourselves…what exactly is going on here? I mean, I know, it’s a movie, it’s animated, it’s for kids, and SpongeBob lives in a pineapple and wears pants and has bonfires underwater but really, let’s just look at this.
What’s in those bags? What are the bags in? Why would bags of water float in water? How on Earth does that make visual sense to anyone ever in the history of the world! The bags aren’t even taking their natural shape!
THIS IS A DISASTER OF TERRIBLE PHYSICS!
Fresh water in the bags vs. salt water in the ocean. Disaster averted.
