Video: Woman Goes Viral After Checking Pool Noodle On Flight

Sydney Fowls is going viral right now and it’s all thanks to a $20 bet.

Fowls and her cousins were planning a girls’ trip from Columbus, Ohio to Tampa when they offered her $20 to see if she could get away with checking a pool noodle on their Southwest Airlines flight. The airline allows your first two bags to fly free, but it appears noodles also count.

Fowls managed to get a video of everything from her handing it to the check-in desk, to the ramp guys loading it onto the plane, and the noodle cruising around baggage claim until she picked it up.
