    I know the motivational parts of this video were just a joke, but damn, this legitimately gave me some good vibes. Just like Emily says at the end: "I know you're bein sarcastic, but it still feels good."

    i fully believed it would flush
    it was almost certain to flush (unless it clogged before all the cake went down)
    the reason is because the cake got soggy from sitting in the water. it would then break more easily and go down the toilet. it most likely flushed because it was weakened from sitting in water.
    it probably could have gone down in one flush if it sat in the toilet ten to fifteen minutes prior
    the cake did flush and that gives me motivation
