Challenge to explode a pumpkin with rubber bands

The challenge of blowing up a watermelon with rubber bands is already well known. I wondered what would happen if we did the same challenge but with a pumpkin. So I invited my friend Oli Duclos with his big deep voice to come and try it with us in my kitchen! Was I going to "trash" my apartment with pieces of pumpkin everywhere or is this challenge just not working? We were quite stressed to receive pieces of pumpkin in the eyes!
