Around the world in 80 flushes! Quirky video reveals what public restrooms look like in different countries across the globe {VIDEO}

Cut.com video reveals what public restrooms look like in different countries

  • A new video by Cut.com tours a variety of toilets in public restrooms around the world 
  • Covering all continents, Blaine Ludy, 26, a producer, visits everywhere from Tokyo, Japan, to Dubai, UAE, and Addis Ababa in Ethiopia

No matter where you go or who you are, there are some things that you just have to do - including the big three: eating, sleeping and going to the bathroom.

And now, thanks to a new video by Cut.com, you can take a unique toilet tour around globe, from Tokyo to Dubai, and see exactly where the rest of the world does their public business.

Soundtracked by Johann Strauss II's The Blue Danube, the video's host Blaine Ludy, 26, takes viewers into the bathrooms of Asian, American, European, Australian and even African countries, showing how the shapes, sizes and even the flushing capabilities of toilets differ the world over.

 All around the world: A new video by Cut.com examines toilets in public bathrooms found around the world, covering cities on every continent

Two bowls: For many of the bathrooms featured, toilet paper doesn't seem to be an option, with bidets and hoses on offer instead

'We sent our producer Blaine around the world to capture footage of public restrooms,' explains the video description, which starts with a shot of a toilet inCut.com's home base of Seattle, Washington.

From there, the journey leaps across the globe, showing an egg-shaped urinal in Adelaide, Australia, and a particularly round toilet in Dubai, with a fully-rounded seat and accompanying bidet. 

Blaine gives the free-standing restrooms found across Europe a go while in Paris, before examining a clean bowl - with a sort of 'shelf' in the German style - in a Spiderman-themed bathroom in Berlin.

Most of the toilets examined in the two-minute video look recently wiped clean - all except one filthy open-air urinal in New Delhi, which appears covered in hundreds of tiny flies and has been improperly used by some passersby.

Leaping over to the Ethiopian city of Addis Ababa, Blaine encounters a soft square-shaped toilet, very similar in look to one he uses in Rome. He also has to face the popular squatting toilets commonly used across Asia.

For many of the bathrooms featured, paper is non-existent, with bidets, hoses or sinks intended for washing over the wiping option. 

Eventually, Blaine is - sort of - seen trying out the toilets as a steady stream of urine appears out from the bottom of the screen going into several of the different toilets in jump cuts. 

Simple: In his travels, Blaine finds toilets of all different shapes and sizes, tests them out and then demonstrates how they are flushed

With the business done, Blaine then shows viewers just how each of the toilets flush or, in some cases, are cleaned by the user themselves.

He pushes a button in Paris, pulls a lever in Bogota and waves his hand over a sensor in Dubai. He also screams when a squirt of water meant to clean the user's rear emits from a hidden pipe in a Tokyo toilet bowl - a function he describes at the end of the video as 'pretty nice'. 

At a squatting toilet in New Delhi, Blaine fills a cup of water in a faucet to perform a manual flush in the toilet, and uses a pistol-topped hose to do so in Bangkok. 

The video is Cut.com's latest of several 'Around the World' videos. They have previously documented kissing and school lunches.

No touch: Some of the toilets, such as this one in Dubai, had sensor-activated flushing mechanisms

Surprise! Blaine was shocked by this toilet in Japan that featured a hidden pipe that popped out to squirt water at the seated person
