What movie's characteristic sound effect was caused by using a tube to blow bubbles in a toilet?

I remember watching a "Making of" type short piece about a popular movie, probably back in the 80s or early 90s (before DVDs) where they created the big important characteristic sound effect by blowing bubbles in a toilet with a tube. Anyone know what it was?

I remember seeing the video on the making of Myst that had a segment like that. Not a movie of course, but a video game.

Hmmm, maybe that was it! I'mma go see if I can find that on Youtube.

That was totally it. Thanks! Isn't it funny how the weird little details stick with you over the years?

And, just for posterity's sake, it's in this video, The Making of Myst Part 2, at the 1:08 mark.
