To pull off the stunt, which Barker says he has never attempted before, he created his own concoction of beans, starch flour and seasoning and filled an inflatable pool with it. He also developed some technology, specifically for bathroom breaks, to help him weather the 24 hours in a pool full of bean dip.READ MORE: Historic Flight Of NASA's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter Postponed Several Days Due To Technical Issue
“I just think we have a golden opportunity to grab the bull by the horn and support local businesses in a big, explosive way, ’cause why not?” Barker said.
