Do you know what you're actually putting into your body when you take a gulp of your favorite carbonated sugary drink?

Sugar does not have that consistency when burned. What he is showing you is not real coca cola. He's showing you supermarket coca cola (or a knockoff) that uses corn syrup. That's why it has a tar-like consistency. Sugar will burn and harden very quickly at those temperatures.

I don't care, I'm drinking it anyhow, in moderation of course. And there's no substitute, gotta have the real Coca Cola.

Not too surprised. There are many other examples of high sugar content (some without the chemicals)
like home-made frosting.

You would get he same result with maple syrup, apple juice, orange juice, and nearly any other organic material.

When someone is incapable of making an argument, they make a video like this.

What's next, incinerate meat to ashes and post, "would you eat this?"
