MythBusters (2003) s16e08 Episode Script

The Reddit Special

1 [ CHUCKLING ] WHAT ARE YOU LAUGHING AT? JUST THE FRONT PAGE OF THE INTERNET.
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS ONE? UH, YEP.
READ IT.
HOW ABOUT THIS ONE? READ IT.
YOU KNOW, THEY REALLY SHOULD CONSIDER GOING DIGITAL, DON'T YOU THINK? -- Captions by VITAC -- CAPTIONS PAID FOR BY DISCOVERY COMMUNICATIONS JAMIE, DO YOU KNOW WHAT REDDIT IS? OTHER THAN THE SOUND A FROG MAKES? NICE.
UH, NO.
REDDIT IS ACTUALLY AN ONLINE COMMUNITY DISCUSSING PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING EVERY SINGLE DAY.
THEY CALL THEMSELVES THE FRONT PAGE OF THE INTERNET.
AND THAT'S NOT FAR FROM THE TRUTH.
I WAS KIDDING.
I KNOW WHAT REDDIT IS.
BUT, UH, WHAT'S THAT MEAN TO US? OBVIOUSLY, YOU KNOW, WE COULDN'T DO THIS SHOW WITHOUT THE SUBMISSIONS WE GET FROM FANS.
AND SEEING AN OPPORTUNITY BECAUSE WE'RE VERY POPULAR ON REDDIT, I WENT ON THE SITE A FEW MONTHS AGO AND SOLICITED IDEAS THAT WE COULD TES ON A "MYTHBUSTERS" REDDIT-BASED EPISODE.
-DID IT WORK? ACTUALLY GANGBUSTERS, WE GO OVER 7,000 RESPONSES.
NOW, ONCE WE WEEDED OUT THE ONES THAT WERE NOT FAMILY-FRIENDLY, NOT GOOD FOR TELEVISION AND WERE JUST PLAIN GROSS AND DISGUSTING, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, WE WERE ACTUALLY ABLE TO GET SEVERAL THAT ARE EMINENTLY TESTABLE BY US.
-LIKE WHAT? -WELL, LATER, WE'LL BE THROWING BUSTER FROM A HELICOPTER Jamie: HO, THERE IT GOES! TRYING TO PUNCH OUR WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG AND FANS WANTED A GRATUITOUS EXPLOSION.
AND I THINK WE SHOULD OBLIGE.
-NATURALLY.
BUT FIRST, REDDITORS WANTED US TO TES WHETHER A FART IS VISIBLE USING THERMAL IMAGING TECHNOLOGY.
THERE'S A VIRAL VIDEO THAT PURPORTS TO SHOW THIS.
AND THEY WANT US TO TES WHETHER IT'S TRUE.
-CAN WE SAY "FART"? -IT'S OUR LAST SEASON.
WHAT ARE THEY GONNA DO, FIRE US? Narrator: FROM THE VERY BEGINNING [ LAUGHS ] THE MOST POPULAR FAN SUBMISSIONS I ALLOCATE MYSELF TO SIX GAS PASSINGS PER DAY.
HAVE BEEN MYTHS ABOUT GAS EMISSIONS.
FLATUS.
HEY, WE GOT ONE! Narrator: SO STAND BY FOR ANOTHER DETOUR DOWN UNDER BECAUSE REDDIT WANTS TO KNOW IF THIS IS A VIRAL VIDEO FAKE OR FLATULENT FACT.
AND ADAM'S STARTING AT THE BOTTOM.
THE LAST TIME, ON "MYTHBUSTERS," WE ATTEMPTED TO CATCH A FLATUS ON FILM, IT WAS DEVILISHLY DIFFICULT.
-HEY, YOU GOT ONE? -I THINK SO.
NO.
NOTHING.
WE STILL HOPE TO DO THIS EXPERIMEN WITH A REAL HUMAN FLATUS, WHICH IS WHY I'M DRINKING ALL THIS LOVELY CARBONATED SELTZER WATER.
BUT JUST IN CASE THAT DOES NOT WORK OH, WAIT.
NO, I GOT TO PEE.
I AM PLANNING TO BUILD A MACHINE THAT CAN ALSO EJECT A FLATUS.
THAT'S WHA ALL THIS EQUIPMENT IS.
IT WILL SOON BE A MACHINETHAT CAN FART.
THE BASIC GIS OF MY FLATUS GENERATOR DESIGN IS THAT IT NEEDS TO BE AT BODY TEMPERATURE.
THAT'S THE TEMPERATURE OUR HOME-BUILT FLATUSES ARE.
SO I'M GOING TO GENERATE THE FLATUS FROM INSIDE A GAS CHAMBER FLOATING IN A WATER BATH THAT WILL BE KEP AT HUMAN BODY TEMPERATURE.
THAT MIGHT NOT BE CLEAR RIGHT NOW, BUT IT WILL ONCE I START TO BUILD IT.
OH [BLEEP] THAT WAS A COMPLETE AND TOTAL DISASTER.
Narrator: ADAM'S DEMO MAY BE A WHILE LONGER THAN EXPECTED.
OH! Narrator: MEANWHILE, HERE'S OUR HOTSHOT HYNEMAN TALKING TECH.
SO THE STORY HERE GOES THAT YOU CAN USE A THERMAL IMAGING CAMERA TO SEE A FLATUS.
NOW WE'VE ENDED UP USING THESE QUITE A BIT ON THE SHOW TO TELL WHETHER THINGS ARE HOT OR COLD.
Jamie: LIKE SOME DEMENTED ELF.
AND YOU CAN SEE BY LOOKING AT THE IMAGE OF MY FACE THAT THE BRIGHT YELLOW AREAS ARE THE HOT ONES, THE DARKER BLUE ONES, LIKE MY HAT, ARE COLDER.
SO GIVEN THAT, UH, GAS COMING OUT OF MY BODY SHOULD PROBABLY BE ABOUT THE SAME TEMPERATURE AS MY BODY, YOU WOULD THINK THAT IT WOULD SHOW UP.
Narrator: YEP.
A THERMAL CAMERA MEASURES INFRARED LIGHT JUST PUTTING MY HAND DOWN.
Narrator: CALCULATES TEMPERATURE AND RENDERS A SCALED IMAGE FROM THE DATA.
OLDER TECHNOLOGY DOES SO IN BLACK AND WHITE.
MODERN, ULTRA-SENSITIVE CAMERAS LIKE OURS HAVE A FULL RANGE OF COLOR.
BUT CAN IT REALLY PICK UP HOT AIR? WITH NO NATURAL FLATUS FORTHCOMING [ ADAM BELCHES ] OH, YEAH.
OH, WRONG END.
Narrator: ADAM I'M GONNA BUILD A FART MAKER.
I'M GONNA MAKE A FANCY FART MAKER.
[ LAUGHING ] Narrator: FAST-FORWARDS PRODUCTION ON HIS MAGNIFICENT MACHINE TO PRODUCE HUMAN-TEMPERATURE FLATUS.
HA! PERFECT.
ALL RIGHT.
OKAY.
HERE'S HOW THIS WORKS.
CLEARLY, INSIDE, I'VE GO AN AIR CHAMBER.
THAT'S WHERE THE FARTS ARE FORMED.
AROUND THAT, I HAVE A WATER BATH, WHICH I WILL KEEP TO A CONSTAN HUMAN BODY TEMPERATURE.
I ALSO HAVE AN AMBIENT THERMOCOUPLE INSIDE THE AIR CHAMBER TELLING ME WHAT THE TEMPERATURE IS INSIDE THERE.
WHEN THAT GETS TO 98.
6, I'M GOING TO LET FLY, LITERALLY LET FLY, WITH THIS.
[ FARTING NOISE ] UH-HUH.
AND WE'RE GONNA SEE IF THAT'S VISIBLE ON OUR THERMAL IMAGING CAMERA.
Narrator: WHILE ADAM WAITS FOR HIS WIND MACHINE TO WARM TO THE OCCASION ARE WE ALLOWED TO SHOW THIS ON TELEVISION? I CAN'T BELIEVE WE ARE.
Narrator: IT'S ON TO YOUR SECOND SUGGESTION.
SO WHAT'S NEXT? NEXT UP IS A BAD DAY FOR BUSTER.
BASICALLY, REDDITORS WANT TO KNOW WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO BUSTER IF WE THREW HIM OUT OF A HELICOPTER WHILE HE'S INSIDE OF ONE OF THOSE GIANT, INFLATABLE HAMSTER BALLS.
-A [BLEEP] -RIGHT.
BUT THAT'S A BRAND NAME.
SO WE CAN'T SAY [BLEEP] SO WE CALL I A HAMSTER BALL.
REDDITORS WANT TO KNOW IF THE INFLATABLE BALL WOULD BREAK BUSTER'S FALL AND ALLOW HIM TO SAFELY LEAVE A HELICOPTER WITHOUT A PARACHUTE.
IF IT TURNS OU TO BE SAFE, CAN I DO IT? KNOCK YOURSELF OUT.
Narrator: IN THIS FINAL-SEASON FLING, BUSTER'S BEING CHUCKED FROM A CHOPPER IN STYLE.
THIS IS GONNA BE BIG.
Adam: ALL RIGHT, REDDIT.
YOU ASKED FOR IT.
AND WE ARE GOING TO DO IT.
SHUT UP.
I'M STANDING IN A RUNWAY IN HALF MOON BAY, CALIFORNIA, ABOUT 30 MINUTES SOUTH OF MYTHBUSTERS' SHOP.
IT'S ONLY GONNA HUR FOR A LITTLE BIT.
JUST FOR AN INSTANT.
AND SOON, BUSTER WILL PERFORM ANOTHER IN A LONG LINE OF DARWIN AWARD-TYPE STUNTS.
HE'S GOING TO FIGURE OU IF THIS IS A VIABLE METHOD OF SURVIVAL WHEN YOU'RE THROWN FROM A HELICOPTER.
BUT FIRST, OF COURSE, I'M GONNA NEED TO TAKE IT OUT FOR A SPIN.
OH! Narrator: IT WAS ONE OF REDDIT'S MOST POPULAR SUGGESTIONS.
AND OPINION IS DIVIDED ON THE POTENTIAL RESULT.
THE MATH SAYS THA THE BALL'S LARGER SURFACE AREA WITH SLOW BUSTER'S TERMINAL VELOCITY BY MORE THAN HALF.
AND IT WILL ALSO CUSHION HIS IMPACT LIKE AN AIR BAG.
BUT WILL IT MAKE THE 1,000-FOOT FALL SURVIVABLE? TO FIND OUT, BUSTER'S RIDE ARRIVES -- THE BIG DAWG.
Adam: SHARP-EYED "MYTHBUSTER" FANS WILL RECOGNIZE THIS HELICOPTER.
IT'S BEEN ON OUR SHOW BEFORE.
OVER 10 YEARS AGO, I ACTUALLY SAT IN THE OPEN DOOR AND DROPPED BUSTER IN AN INFLATABLE RAFT.
Narrator: THE SIKORSKY WILL BE DOING THE HEAVY LIFTING.
BUT IN THIS FINAL SEASON EPIC, HE WON'T BE FLYING SOLO.
Jamie: SO THAT WE CAN GIVE YOU REDDITORS THE BEST POSSIBLE FOOTAGE OF WHAT HAPPENS HERE, WE'VE HIRED A SPECIALIZED SEPARATE HELICOPTER WITH ITS OWN CARBON FIBER, GYROSTABILIZED, UH, CAMERA THING-A-BOBBY.
IT'S GONNA BE GREAT.
Narrator: MAYBE NOT FOR BUSTER, WHO GETS TO BE THE FALL GUY NOT ONCE BUT TWICE, ONCE IN THE BALL AND ONCE AS A CONTROL WITHOUT.
BUT HOW WILL HIS INJURIES BE MEASURED? WE'VE USED ELECTRONICS IN THE PAS TO MEASURE SHOCK LOADS TO THINGS THAT WE'RE TESTING.
BUT THERE'S AN INHERENT PROBLEM WITH THEM IN THAT A LOT OF THIS STUFF THAT WE DO IS SO VIOLEN THAT WE BREAK THE INSTRUMENTATION IN THE PROCESS.
AND WE DON'T GE OUR MEASUREMENTS.
SO WE'VE GOTTEN IN THE HABI OF USING THESE THINGS.
THEY'RE SHOCKWATCHES.
AND THEY'RE PRETTY BASIC AND FOOLPROOF.
I'M PUTTING 50-G SHOCKWATCHES ON THE HEAD.
AND I'M GONNA BE PUTTING 100-G SHOCKWATCHES ON THE CHEST, WHICH IS WHAT IT TAKES TO KILL SOMEBODY THERE.
Adam: HERE'S HOW THIS IS GONNA WORK.
ALL RIGHT, BUSTER.
THERE YOU GO.
THREE, TWO BUSTER AND I, IN THIS HELICOPTER, ARE GONNA FLY TO 1,000 FEET.
HAVE A NICE FLIGH THERE, GUY.
UH, THANK YOU, OR DID YOU MEAN BUSTER? -I MEANT BUSTER.
-OKAY, COOL.
YOU, I DON'T CARE SO MUCH ABOUT.
WHEN WE GET TO 1,000 FEET, I'M GOING TO DROP THAT SANDBAG TO MAKE SURE WE'RE AIMED CORRECTLY.
WELL, HERE WE GO.
I WILL THEN CU BUSTER'S SEAT BELT, KICK HIM OUT OF THE HELICOPTER AND DROP HIM ON THE TARGET.
THAT'S OUR CONTROL TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN BUSTER FALLS WITHOU ANYTHING BREAKING HIS FALL.
THAT IS SO COOL.
AND WE'RE 500 FEE ABOVE THE GROUND.
LOOK AT THAT.
THE VIEW FROM UP HERE IS ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFICENT.
WE'RE AT 800 FEET.
Narrator: UNPREDICTABLE WINDS WON'T AFFEC THE VELOCITY OF BUSTER'S IMPACT.
BUT TOO MUCH SIDEWAYS DRIF COULD BE A DANGER FOR THOSE BELOW.
-AND WE'RE AT 1,000 FEET.
-ALL RIGHT.
WE ARE IN PROPER POSITION TO MAKE SURE OUR AIMING IS GOOD.
I'M ABOUT TO DROP THE SANDBAG.
HERE WE GO IN 3, 2, 1.
Jamie: AND SANDBAG AWAY.
HERE COMES THE SANDBAG.
GOT TO REPOSITION HERE.
OKAY, ADAM.
I'M READY.
COPY THAT.
IT'S TIME TO DROP BUSTER.
FIRST I'M GONNA CUT HIS SEAT BELT.
THERE WE GO.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS IS A MYTHBUSTERS' CONTROL.
[ LAUGHS ] THERE HE GOES.
THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL.
MAN, THAT LOOKS TERRIFYING.
ALL RIGHT, REDDITORS.
Narrator: STILL TO COME ARE YOU READY? THIS IS A GREAT DAY FOR AN EXPERIMENT.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, LET'S CRUMPLE! ALL RIGHT, REDDIT.
HERE WE GO.
WE'RE GONNA PRODUCE A HUMAN-BODY-TEMPERATURE POOT.
WHOA! Narrator: THE INTERNET CALLED.
"MYTHBUSTERS" DELIVERED.
Adam: THAT WAS AWESOME.
I LOVE MY JOB.
-"DEAR MYTHBUSTERS" -"DEAR MYTHBUSTERS" Narrator: FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, FAN FEEDBACK HAS BEEN INTEGRAL TO THE MYTHBUSTERS' M.
O.
NO MORE CAR! IN THIS FINAL SEASON, IT'S COME FULL CIRCLE WITH A REDDIT SPECIAL.
Adam: WE ARE STARTING WITH WHAT'S CALLED AN A.
M.
A.
, AN ASK ME ANYTHING, IN WHICH I LOG INTO REDDIT THAT'S THE BEST QUESTION EVER! AND TAKE OPEN QUESTIONS FROM THE ENTIRE USER BASE.
Narrator: THE RESULT -- CAN AN INFLATABLE HAMSTER BALL SAVE BUSTER FROM A 1,000-FOOT FALL? I THINK HE MIGH HAVE POOPED HIMSELF.
Adam: UH, ALL RIGHT.
SO FOR OUR CONTROL, BUSTER'S DEAD.
UH, MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE SENSORS WORKED.
AND IF THEY WORKED IN THIS CASE, THEY'LL WORK INSIDE THE INFLATABLE.
EVERY SINGLE SHOCKWATCH WAS TRIPPED, WITH A RED LINE INDICATING A LETHAL IMPACT.
AND NO WONDER.
THE MATH SAYS BUSTER HIT THE GROUND AT AN ESTIMATED 120 MILES PER HOUR.
SO BRING ON THE BALL.
Jamie: WE'RE GETTING BUSTER INTO THIS INFLATABLE AND GETTING HIM ALL HOOKED UP AND RIGGED ON THE HELICOPTER.
TURNS OUT THERE'S NOTHING I CAN'T FIND A LAZIER WAY TO DO.
A LITTLE MORE INVOLVED THAN JUS CHUCKING HIM IN THE CHOPPER.
IT'S GONNA BE TRICKY.
THAT'S THE COOLEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN HIM DO.
Narrator: NOW TO INSERT BUSTER, WHO IS ONCE AGAIN COVERED IN DATA-COLLECTION SHOCKWATCHES.
Jamie: THERE ARE A COUPLE THINGS TO CONSIDER IF YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE POTENTIAL FOR ONE OF THESE INFLATABLE BALLS TO SAVE YOUR LIFE.
-COME ON, BUSTER.
-HOLD ON.
OH.
THE FIRST IS THE CUSHIONING.
IT'LL HELP.
THE SECOND IS ITS TERMINAL VELOCITY.
AND THAT'S DETERMINED BY ITS SURFACE AREA AND ITS WEIGHT.
YES.
COME ON, BUSTER.
-OKAY.
WAIT.
-OH, OH.
A FEATHER HAS MORE SURFACE AREA THAN A BALL BEARING OF THE SAME WEIGHT.
AND SO IT'S GONNA FALL SLOWER.
I THINK -- OH.
STOP.
-YEAH? -STOP.
-OKAY.
JUST SEEMED LIKE TOO MUCH FUN TO NOT KEEP DOING THAT.
Jamie: WE KNOW THAT BUSTER BY HIMSELF IS GONNA FALL AT ABOUT 120-SOME MILES PER HOUR.
WE'D ESTIMATE THAT THE BALL, HOWEVER, IS GONNA FALL AT ABOUT 50 MILES PER HOUR.
-THERE WE GO.
-AND THERE WE GO.
WOO! WHETHER IT'S ENOUGH OR NO TO SAVE YOUR LIFE, WE DON'T KNOW YET.
THAT WAS AWESOME.
WHO KNEW THAT THAT WAS GONNA BE ONE OF THE HARDEST PARTS OF THIS STORY TO DO? THERE WE GO.
-RIGHT FOOT.
Narrator: WITH BUSTER POISED, ADAM TAKES HIS BIRD'S-EYE SEAT.
HEY.
WE'RE IN.
ALL RIGHT.
AWESOME.
THE BALL IS RIGGED TO BE RELEASED FROM THE COCKPIT.
THERE WE GO.
STAND BY FOR LIFTOFF.
Adam: ALL RIGHT.
THIS IS HOW THIS IS GONNA WORK -- BUSTER, INSIDE THE HAMSTER BALL, WILL BE HANGING BELOW THIS HELICOPTER ON A TETHER.
NOW, BECAUSE THIS BEAUTIFUL MACHINE IS MADE FOR LIFTING AND HAULING, IT'S GOT A QUICK RELEASE ON ITS UNDERSIDE.
Man: ALL RIGHT.
HERE WE GO.
SO ONCE WE FLY UP TO 1,000 FEET, WE'RE GOING TO PULL THAT QUICK RELEASE, DROP BUSTER.
AND I'LL BE ABLE TO WATCH HIS FALL FROM RIGHT HERE, LOOKING DOWN.
WHAT A LOVELY DAY.
WHAT A LOVELY DAY.
Jamie: THIS MAY SEEM LIKE ALL FUN AND GAMES.
BUT ACTUALLY, WE'VE GO SOME SERIOUS CONCERNS HERE.
WE'VE GOT A LOT OF WIND.
WE'VE GOT A LONG ROPE AND A HELICOPTER.
YOU KNOW, IF SOMETHING GOES WHERE IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO GO, WE COULD BE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE.
Narrator: ONCE AGAIN, DRIFT IS A DANGEROUS LOGISTICAL FACTOR.
BUT EXPERIMENTALLY, THE KEY VARIABLE IS SPEED ON IMPAC AND THE DROP CONDITIONS ARE IDENTICAL TO THE CONTROL.
3 2 THERE IT GOES.
-AND AWAY HE GOES.
Adam: OH.
BOOM.
[ LAUGHS ] WELL, I TELL YOU ONE THING -- BUSTER SEEMS LIKE HE'S A LOT BETTER OFF THAN HE WAS WITHOUT THAT BALL.
LET'S GO SEE HOW HE TURNED OUT.
Narrator: HERE IT IS, REDDIT.
DID THE REDUCTION IN TERMINAL VELOCITY AND A GIANT AIR BAG SAVE BUSTER? DEAD, DEAD, DEAD, DEAD, DEAD.
OH, VERY DEAD.
WOW.
THAT'S THE LAST TIME I JUMP OUT OF AN AIRPLANE WITH ONE OF THESE THINGS.
-YEAH.
Man: 3, 2, 1, RELEASING.
AND AWAY SHE GOES.
Jamie: WELL, BUSTER DIDN'T SURVIVE.
AND WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT, THE THICKNESS OF THE CUSHION HERE IS, WELL, IT'S KIND OF LIKE A NICE, SOFT MATTRESS.
AND IF YOU WERE DROPPED FROM 1,000 FEE TO LAND ON YOUR MATTRESS, I DON'T THINK YOU'D SURVIVE EITHER.
SORRY, BUSTER.
Narrator: EVEN AT 50 MILES PER HOUR, THE CUSHION OF AIR COULDN'T SLOW HIS DECELERATION ENOUGH TO PREVENT A FATAL IMPACT.
BUT THE GUYS CAN'T LEAVE IT THERE.
THEY HAVE ONE MORE SLEEVE AND ONE MORE TRICK.
I SEEM TO REMEMBER BACK IN THE DISTANT PAST, BUBBLE PACKAGING DID A PRETTY GOOD JOB OF BREAKING MY FALL.
I'M OKAY.
HMM.
Narrator: YEP.
USING THEIR EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE WITH CRASH-TESTING DUMMIES AND BUSTER, THE GUYS HAVE A BIG JOB AHEAD FILLING THE BALL WITH THEIR FAVORITE SHOCK-RESISTANT MATERIAL.
MEANWHILE, IT'S BACK TO THE SHOP TO FIND OU IF A THERMAL CAMERA REALLY CAN CATCH A REAR-GUARD ACTION IN ACTION.
WELL, I JUST POLISHED OFF MY FOURTH PIN OF CARBONATED WATER.
AND NOTHING IS HAPPENING.
BUT THIS IS WHY I STARTED BUILDING THE MACHINE IN THE FIRST PLACE.
ALL RIGHT.
MR.
HYNEMAN, I GO THE CORRECT TEMPERATURE.
Narrator: WITH ADAM'S MACHINE AT BODY TEMPERATURE [ FARTING NOISE ] THAT THING LOOKS LIKE A BIG [BLEEP] THAT'S FARTING.
REDDIT, STAND BY TO HAVE YOUR CURIOSITY CURED.
ALL RIGHT, REDDIT.
HERE WE GO.
WE'RE GONNA PRODUCE A HUMAN-BODY-TEMPERATURE POO ON THE THERMAL IMAGING CAMERA AND SEE IF IT REGISTERS.
HERE WE GO.
3, 2, 1.
[ FARTING NOISE ] ANYTHING? THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME.
NOTHING.
NOTHING.
-NOTHING? -NOTHING.
-IT SOUNDS GREAT, THOUGH.
-I KNOW.
I'M JUST SAYING.
Narrator: IT MIGHT BE MUSIC TO JAMIE'S EARS, BUT EVEN IN CLOSE-UP THERE WE GO.
THIS MYTH IS LOOKING BUSTED.
NOTHING AT ALL.
I CAN SEE THE NOZZLE'S ACTUALLY HEATING UP QUITE A BI FROM THE AIR GOING THROUGH IT.
-RIGHT.
-BUT THERE'S NO INDICATION OF ANY KIND OF GAS COMING OUT OF IT.
OKAY.
Adam: SO JUST TO RECAP, WE BUILT WHAT I CONSIDER TO BE THE MOST ADVANCED ARTIFICIAL FARTING DEVICE YET DEVISED BY NATURE AND THE SKILL OF MAN.
OH! AND IF WE CAN'T SEE A FAR COMING OUT OF THIS THING, WELL, IT'S JUST NOT GONNA HAPPEN.
Narrator: YEP.
AND IT'S DOWN TO DENSITY.
LOW-DENSITY GAS EMITS ALMOST NO INFRARED LIGHT.
SO HOW EXACTLY WAS THE ORIGINAL FAKED? ADAM FIRES UP AN OLD BLACK-AND-WHITE CAMERA FOR A DEMO.
A TUBE AND SOME FREEZING-COLD COMPRESSED AIR, OFTEN USED ON ELECTRONICS FOR MAKING CIRCUITS COLD.
WATCH WHAT IT DOES HERE.
THERMAL IMAGING CAMERA, HERE WE COME.
OH, YEAH.
LOOK AT THAT.
THAT LOOKS EXACT-- OH.
WOO! HEY, THAT'S COLD.
HOO! DON'T TRY THAT AT HOME.
Narrator: OF COURSE, EAGLE-EYED VIEWERS WILL HAVE NOTED THE FLAW IN THE FAKE.
Jamie: LIKE ADAM JUST SHOWED, THE GAS IN THE VIRAL VIDEO WAS COLDER THAN THE SURROUNDING ATMOSPHERE.
THAT'S BECAUSE IT WAS DARK.
SHOULD BE WARMER THAN THE SURROUNDING ATMOSPHERE.
SO IF YOU'RE GONNA CHEAT IT, YOU NEED STEAM LIKE THIS.
SO, SORRY, GUYS, I GOT TO TELL YA -- YOU GOT IT ALL BASS-ACKWARDS.
Narrator: UP NEXT, LET'S GE READY TO ROCHAMBEAU.
IT'S ROCKY VERSUS PAPER.
YOU LOOK HOT, I MEAN, AS IN, WARM.
WELL, I JUS FINISHED MY WORKOUT.
YEAH.
SO WHAT'S NEXT? WELL, YOU KNOW, ON "MYTHBUSTERS," WE'VE DONE A WHOLE BUNCH OF IDIOMATIC PHRASES, RIGHT? MORE THAN YOU COULD SHAKE A STICK AT.
NICE.
I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE.
WELL, ONE OF THE BEST SUGGESTIONS TO COME THROUGH OUR REDDIT INBOX WAS THE PHRASE, "YOU CAN'T PUNCH YOUR WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG.
" SO THE MYTH IS THAT IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO PUNCH YOUR WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG.
MM, NO, BECAUSE THE PHRASE IS ALWAYS SPOKEN IN CONTEXT.
IT MEANS, WHEN YOU SAY TO SOMEONE, "YOU CAN'T PUNCH YOUR WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG," YOU MEAN THA THEY'RE A WEAKLING.
ERGO, THE MYTH IS THAT PUNCHING YOUR WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG SHOULD BE TRIVIALLY EASY.
WELL, YOU'RE NOT GONNA FI INTO A PAPER BAG.
WELL, SO YOU GOT TO MAKE ME A MAN-SIZED PAPER BAG TO BOX MY WAY OUT OF.
YOU COULD STILL RIP YOUR WAY OUT, THOUGH.
RIGHT.
YOU'VE GO TO MAKE IT BIG ENOUGH WHERE ONLY A PUNCH IS GONNA GET ME OUT OF THAT BAG.
OH, I'M TOTALLY FEELING IT.
BRING IT ON.
COME ON, PAPER.
OH, YEAH.
OH, YOU WANT A LITTLE? WHERE'D JAMIE GO? COME ON.
Narrator: JAMIE? HE HIT THE SHOP FOR SOME SCIENCE ON WHY THIS IDIOM MAY NOT BE AS CUT-AND-DRIED AS IT SEEMS.
WELL, THE THING IS THAT A PUNCH INVOLVES TWO COMPONENTS.
ONE IS THE FIST, WHICH IS MOVING.
AND THE OTHER IS THE TARGET, WHICH IS NOT.
NOW IF THE TARGET ACTUALLY STARTS TO MOVE, THEN EVERYTHING'S DIFFERENT.
THAT'S A GAME CHANGER.
Narrator: TO DEMONSTRATE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A STATIONARY AND A MOVING TARGET, ADAM SETS UP A LOAD CELL, A DEVICE THAT REGISTERS FORCE IN POUNDS.
3, 2, 1.
LOOK AT THAT, ABOUT 35 POUNDS' FORCE TO PUSH THROUGH THAT.
YEAH.
MY FIS COULD'VE TOTALLY DONE IT.
Narrator: YEP.
ANYONE CAN APPLY THAT AMOUNT OF FORCE, BUT LOOSE PIECE OF PAPER, LOAD CELL 0.
5 POUNDS OF FORCE.
Narrator: IF THE PAPER IS ABLE TO MOVE, ADAM CAN'T REGISTER ANYTHING CLOSE TO THE REQUIRED 35 POUNDS.
Adam: THAT IS THE KEY.
THE PAPER HAS TO BE ABLE TO MOVE.
ALLOW ME TO EXPLAIN.
GRAPHICS, PLEASE.
IF THE BAG IS TOO SMALL, LESS THAN AN ARM SPAN, IT WOULD BE WAY EASY TO JUST HOLD IT IN PLACE AND RIP IT.
BUT IF THE DIAMETER IS GREATER THAN MY ARM SPAN, SAY 6 FEET, THEN THE PAPER COULD THEORETICALLY ACCELERATE OUT OF THE WAY OF MY PUNCH.
AND IT MIGHT NOT BE POSSIBLE FOR ME TO APPLY THE REQUISITE 35 POUNDS OF FORCE.
Narrator: YEP.
FOR THIS MYTH, SIZE REALLY DOES MATTER.
Jamie: OKAY.
TIME TO BUILD OUR OWN GIANT SHOPPING BAG.
I'M GONNA KEEP IT IN EXACTLY THE SAME PROPORTIONS OF THIS BAG.
IT'S JUST GONNA BE MUCH BIGGER.
THERE WE GO.
THAT'S ONE BIG-ASS GROCERY BAG.
YEAH.
Narrator: THE PAPER OPPONENT IS PREPPED.
BUT NOT ONLY DOES ADAM HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO THROW A PUNCH AFTER REMOVING THE MUSCLE SUIT, IT'S CLEAR HE'S SERIOUSLY OUT OF SHAPE.
CUE THE TRAINING SEQUENCE.
Adam: NOW IF I'M GONNA PUNCH MY WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG, IT BEHOOVES ME NOT TO UNDERESTIMATE MY OPPONEN AND LEARN ABOUT PUNCHING FROM A PROFESSIONAL STANDPOINT.
LOOKS GOOD.
LET'S GET GLOVED UP.
-ALL RIGHT.
-LET'S SEE WHAT YOU GOT.
COOL.
THIS IS TERRIFYING.
Adam: AND MY GUIDE IN THIS WILL BE PAUL WADE.
HE'S A FORMER NORTHERN IRELAND KICKBOXING CHAMPION, SAN FRANCISCO GOLDEN GLOVES CHAMPION.
AND HE'S THE OWNER OF THE THIRD STREET BOXING GYM RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER FROM THE MYTHBUSTERS' SHOP.
THAT'S IT.
PAUL IS GOING TO SHOW ME A LITTLE BI ABOUT WHAT PUNCHING IS REALLY ABOUT.
LET'S SEE WHAT YOU GOT.
COME ON.
BUT FIRST, HE NEEDS TO GET A GAUGE OF JUST HOW GREEN AND USELESS I AM IN THE RING.
OH.
I HAVEN'T TOLD HIM YE THAT THE LAST FISTFIGHT I HAD, I WAS IN THE THIRD GRADE.
SORRY, JP.
TIME.
WHAT WE GOT TO DO IS GE A BIT OF A SETUP.
1, 2, 3.
Narrator: BOXING, LIKE ANY MARTIAL ART, IS HIGHLY TECHNICAL.
HIP ROTATION.
EXACTLY.
GOOD BALANCE.
AND DELIVERING A POWERFUL PUNCH POW.
GET INTO IT.
IS AS MUCH TO DO WITH FORM ALL RIGHT.
AS IT IS WITH SPEED AND STRENGTH -- KNOWLEDGE ADAM DIDN' HAVE UNTIL TODAY.
STRAIGHT ARM, BEND YOUR KNEES.
GOOD.
TURN YOUR HIP.
JAB, SLIP LEFT.
GOOD.
NOT BAD.
NOT BAD.
NOT BAD.
IT'S BEEN A LONG, HARD SESSION.
BUT NOW ADAM CAN AT LEAST STAR THE EXPERIMEN WITH THE ABILITY TO THROW AN ENTRY-LEVEL PUNCH.
A WEAPON COMING THROUGH.
YES.
GOOD JOB.
SO IT'S BACK TO BASE TO SEE HOW HE MEASURES UP.
REMEMBER, IT TOOK 35 POUNDS OF FORCE TO PIERCE STATIONARY PAPER.
NICE.
PAPER -- 593 POUNDS FORCE.
THAT'S WHAT YOU'VE GOT COMING TO YOU.
[ BELL DINGS ] Narrator: QUESTION IS, WILL PAPER BEAT ADAM'S ROCKLIKE FISTS SIMPLY BY FLOATING AWAY? [ BELL DINGS ] BUT BEFORE THE BIG FIGHT, IT'S ROUND THREE FOR BUSTER'S BALLS.
Jamie: BOOM.
[ LAUGHS ] YES.
IT'S A SECOND INFLATABLE HAMSTER BALL READY FOR A THIRD DROP FOR A SOMEWHAT WILLING BUSTER.
EXCEPT THIS TIME INSTEAD OF BEING ALONE INSIDE THE BALL, HE IS GOING TO BE PROTECTED WITH INFLATABLE BUBBLE PACKAGING.
THAT'S IT.
COME ON.
WE'RE GONNA STUFF A BUNCH OF THIS IN THERE WITH BUSTER TO SEE IF IT WILL PROTECT HIM FROM A VERY HIGH FALL.
I ACTUALLY THINK IT KIND OF MIGHT.
OKAY.
SO BUSTER HAS A NICE, LITTLE CUSHION OF INFLATABLE PACKAGING.
AND, UH, HE'S READY TO SHIP.
Adam: OUR WORKHORSE OF A HELICOPTER'S ABOUT TO TAKE OFF AGAIN.
THIS TIME IN THE PASSENGER SEAT, MR.
HYNEMAN.
FUN FACT -- THAT HELICOPTER HAS ONLY EVER HAD THREE NON-PILOTS IN THE PASSENGER SEAT -- KARI BYRON WE'RE NOW HEADING OVER TO THE DROP ZONE.
ADAM SAVAGE, THAT'S ME, AND JAMIE HYNEMAN.
Man: ALL RIGHT.
WE'RE LIFTING.
IT'S A "MYTHBUSTER" PARTY.
Narrator: THE BIG DAWG IS UP.
THE HYNEMAN IS RIDING SHOTGUN.
AND BUSTER, COVERED IN SHOCKWATCHES, ONCE AGAIN WISHES HE'D NEVER APPLIED FOR THE JOB.
GOOD.
OKAY.
IT'S LOOKING NICE AND STABLE.
THAT'S THE COOLEST VIEW EVER! LOOK AT THAT! DUDE, WE'VE GOT TWO HELICOPTERS IN THE AIR.
BUSTER IS WRAPPED IN BUBBLE PACKAGING IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INFLATABLE HAMSTER BALL.
AND WE'RE ABOUT TO DROP HIM 1,000 FEET ONTO A RUNWAY TO FIND OUT IF HE SURVIVES.
HELICOPTER IS AT HEIGHT.
OKAY.
WE'RE GONNA COUNT DOWN.
3, 2, 1.
-HERE IT GOES.
-RELEASING.
AND AS -- OH, THERE IT GOES.
IT'S DROPPING.
OH, IT'S BEAUTIFUL.
OH.
OH.
OH.
OH, THAT IS AWESOME.
COME ON, BUSTER.
LET'S SEE HOW YOU DID.
OH, OH.
THE NEWS IS BAD.
THAT ONE'S TRIPPED.
THAT ONE'S TRIPPED.
OH.
[ SIGHS ] TRIPPED, TRIPPED, TRIPPED.
HE'S DEAD, JIM.
HE'S DEAD.
ALL RIGHT.
IT'S JUDGMENT TIME.
AN INFLATABLE HAMSTER BALL AS A METHOD FOR SURVIVING FALLING OU OF THE SKY, HOW DO WE FIND? HMM, NOT SO MUCH.
IT'S BUSTED.
IT'S TOTALLY BUSTED.
LET'S GET OUT OF HERE.
Narrator: UP NEXT THAT BAG IS NOTHING.
AH! IT'S THE THRILLA IN A MANILA ENVELOPE.
[ BELL DINGS ] LADIES AND GENTLEMEN WELCOME TO THE PAPERWEIGH CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WORLD.
IN THE RED CORNER, WEIGHING IN AT 175 POUNDS, ADAM "THE KILLER WHO'S VANILLA" SAVAGE! AND IN THE BLUE CORNER, WEIGHING IN AT2 1/2 POUNDS IS THE REIGNING CHAMPION, PAPER BAG! LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, LET'S CRUMPLE! Narrator: FOR THE MYTH TO HOLD UP, ADAM HAS TO EASILY PUNCH HIS WAY OUT OF THE BAG.
-THAT BAG IS NOTHING.
-IT'S NOTHING.
GET OUT THERE AND RIP THAT UP.
DO YOU HEAR ME? YEAH! AH.
TO MEASURE SUCH A SUBJECTIVE PARAMETER, ADAM WILL BE TIMED AND REPEAT THE EXPERIMEN OVER THREE ROUNDS GO GET HIM, KILLER.
BEFORE ASSESSING EFFORT VERSUS EXPECTATION.
ALL RIGHT.
ALL RIGHT, JAMIE.
I'M READY.
ROUND ONE.
[ BELL DINGS ] Narrator: 20 SECONDS IN, DESPITE TAKING A POUNDING, THE BAG'S STILL STANDING.
Adam: LOOK, PAUL SHOWED ME HOW TO PUNCH.
AND I AM NOT HOLDING BACK.
I AM GIVING IT EVERYTHING THAT I'VE GOT.
AND IT IS SURPRISINGLY DIFFICULT.
Narrator: ADAM IS PUNCHING WITH ALMOST 600 POUNDS OF FORCE.
BUT SO FAR, EACH PUNCH IS NOT APPLYING ENOUGH PRESSURE TO PIERCE THE PAPER.
Jamie: IT'S SURPRISINGLY VIOLENT.
Adam: OH! Jamie: EVERY TIME ADAM HITS THE BAG, IT MAKES THIS THUNDER-LIKE NOISE.
IT'S A SHARP CRACK, A LOT OF REVERBERATION.
IT'S FRIGHTENING.
Adam: OH! [ LAUGHING ] WOO! IN YOUR FACE, BAG! [ BELL DINGS ] THAT WAS HARDER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE.
Narrator: YEP.
THE MYTH SUGGESTS THA IT SHOULD BE A TRIVIAL TASK.
BUT ADAM FOUND IT REASONABLY DIFFICUL UNTIL JUST OVER THE MINUTE MARK, THE PAPER WRINKLED, FATIGUED AND RIPPED.
WITH A BENCHMARK LAID DOWN -COME ON.
-CUE ROUND TWO.
Jamie: AWESOME.
ONCE AGAIN, IT'S CLEARLY NO A SIMPLE MATTER.
Adam: HOLD ON.
WHERE IS MY I LOST MY GLASSES.
HANG ON.
GOT 'EM.
Narrator: AND ONCE AGAIN, IT TAKES JUST OVER A MINUTE BEFORE THE CREASES AND CRUMPLES ACCUMULATE TO THE POIN WHERE A SINGLE PUNCH CAN BREAK THROUGH.
A-HA! [ LAUGHING ] YES.
[ GROWLING ] WOO! Narrator: AND WHEN ROUND THREE YIELDS AN ALMOS IDENTICAL RESULT WAH! Narrator: THE FINAL TALLY IS Adam: BAG ZERO, ADAM THREE.
BUT HERE'S THE THING, IT TOOK ME ALMOST A MINUTE EACH TIME TO PUNCH MY WAY OU WITH THE GLOVES ON.
SO AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED, THE MYTH IS KIND OF ON THE FENCE RIGHT NOW.
I'M NOT SURE EXACTLY HOW TO CALL IT.
BUT FOR DUE DILIGENCE, THERE'S ONE THING WE HAVEN'T TRIED, WHICH IS WHAT I IF I TAKE THESE GLOVES OFF? THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO NEXT.
Narrator: THE GLOVES ARE OFF.
AND THE VARIABLE IN THIS EXPERIMENT IS SURFACE AREA.
THE CONTACT AREA OF ADAM'S KNUCKLES IS CONSIDERABLY SMALLER THAN THE LARGE, PADDED GLOVE.
Adam: ALL RIGHT, JAMIE.
[ BELL DINGS ] OH.
A-HA! A GOOD BARE-KNUCKLE BROWN-BAG BEATDOWN! Narrator: THE SAME FORCE APPLIED OVER A SMALLER SURFACE AREA EQUALS A MUCH GREATER PRESSURE.
AND IT'S PRESSURE THA ULTIMATELY PIERCES THE PAPER.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE NEW PAPERWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD, ADAM SAVAGE! Adam: WOO! THE PHRASE MEANS PUNCHING A WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG SHOULD BE EASY.
AND GLOVES OR NO, IT IS, IN FACT, REASONABLY EASY.
THEREFORE, IT'S MYTH CONFIRMED.
Narrator: WITH THREE REDDI REQUESTS IN THE BAG IT'S BACK TO BASE FOR THE FINAL FAN SUGGESTION OF THE FINAL SEASON.
SO WHAT DO THE REDDITORS HAVE NEXT? WELL, AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, THERE WERE HUNDREDS UPON HUNDREDS OF SUGGESTIONS OF THINGS THAT WE COULD BLOW UP ON THIS SHOW.
BUT THE MOST POPULAR VOTES WERE FOR TWO MAIN CATEGORIES.
HALF THE PEOPLE WANTED US TO MAKE A GLITTER BOMB.
THE OTHER HALF WANTED US TO BLOW UP A SNOO.
I FIGURE WE KILL TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE AND DO BOTH -- MAKE A BOMB THAT BLOWS UP A SNOO WITH GLITTER IN IT.
GREAT.
WHAT'S A SNOO? THIS IS THE SNOO.
AND REDDIT HAS REQUESTED THEIR LOVABLE LOGO GO OU IN A GLITTER BOMB OF GLORY.
ADAM AND JAMIE ARE ONLY TOO HAPPY TO OBLIGE.
BUT WILL IT BE THE EPIC BIG-BANG ENDING EVERYONE WANTS? THERE'S ONLY ONE PLACE TO FIND OUT.
Adam: REDDITORS, IF YOU'RE FANS OF "MYTHBUSTERS," YOU ARE EVEN DEEPER FANS OF THE LOCATION IN WHICH I AM STANDING.
CLEARED OF BRUSH FOR 20 OR 30 ACRES AND NESTLED INTO THE HILLS OF DUBLIN, CALIFORNIA, THIS IS THE ALAMEDA COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT BOMB RANGE, WITHOUT WHICH, IT'S NOT TOO MUCH TO SAY, "MYTHBUSTERS" WOULD NOT BE "MYTHBUSTERS.
" WE HAVE BEEN BLOWING UP STUFF ON THIS SPECIFIC RANGE FOR MORE THAN 10 YEARS.
AND IT'S THE PERFECT PLACE FOR US TO DETONATE YOUR BELOVED SNOO.
ALL RIGHT.
ISN'T IT KIND OF IRONIC THAT WE JUST HAD THIS BUILT? IT WAS, LIKE, BORN YESTERDAY.
AND TODAY WE'RE KILLING IT? THAT'S OUR USUAL STYLE, ISN'T IT? -YEAH.
-QUESTION IS SNOO COMING THROUGH! Narrator: HOW DO YOU MAKE A GLITTER BOMB OUT OF A 2-D DIGITAL CARTOON? WELL, BEFORE YOU BLOW IT UP, YOU BLOW IT UP IN ORDER TO FILL IT WITH GLITTER, PAIN AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE.
-WOW.
-THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.
Narrator: IN THE FINAL SEASON COUNTDOWN, YOU, THE AUDIENCE, HAVE RACKED UP SOME IMPRESSIVE NUMBERS.
IN THE U.
S.
ALONE, YOU'VE WATCHED THE SHOW MORE THAN 2 BILLION TIMES.
SEEN IT.
IT'S BEEN BROADCAS IN 194 COUNTRIES IN 116 LANGUAGES.
[ SPEAKING SPANISH ] Narrator: BUT THE MOS IMPORTANT NUMBER IS 240 [ SPEAKING FRENCH ] C-4.
Narrator: THE MYTHS SUGGESTED BY YOU.
WELL, THERE'S YOUR PROBLEM.
THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT.
WE LITERALLY COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU.
Narrator: THE MYTHBUSTERS KNOW HOW TO ART-DIRECT AN EXPLOSION.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN SO IF REDDIT WANTS TO BLOW UP AN INFLATABLE CARTOON AND FINISH THIS FINAL SEASON SPECTACULAR IN STYLE OKAY.
I'M IN THE SNOO.
THEN ADAM AND JAMIE Jamie: OKAY, GUYS.
BRING IN THE EXPLOSIVES.
ARE JUST THE MEN TO DELIVER -I'M READY TO BE BORN.
-ALL RIGHT.
Narrator: TAILOR-MADE MAYHEM.
YES.
BORN FROM A SNOO.
Narrator: WITH THE SNOO HELD IN PLACE Adam: THAT SEEMS GOOD.
IT'S TIME TO GET CRAFTY.
HI, EVERYBODY.
NOW, THIS IS A PERFEC "MYTHBUSTERS" CRAFT PROJECT.
I HOPE EVERYONE AT HOME IS FOLLOWING ALONG.
YOU'VE GOT YOUR GLITTER, YOUR SPARKLES.
I'VE ALSO GO TEMPERA PAINT AND 300 FEE OF EXPLOSIVE 50-GRAIN DET CORD.
YES.
FOLLOW ALONG AT HOME WHILE I MAKE THIS ONE HERE.
SERIOUSLY, THIS IS 300 FEE OF DET CORD.
I LOVE MY JOB.
THIS IS WHAT'S CALLED A STABLE EXPLOSIVE.
NOTHING WILL MAKE THIS GO OFF EXCEPT FOR A BLASTING CAP.
AND ONLY WHEN THE BOMB SQUAD CAP'S IN DOES IT BECOME ACTUALLY DANGEROUS.
AND BY THAT POINT, WE'LL BE NICE AND FAR AWAY.
NOW FOR THE TEMPERA PAINT.
Narrator: TO MAXIMIZE THE SPECTACLE, ADAM BEGINS BY WRAPPING THE EXPLOSIVE IN PAINT-FILLED BAGS.
[ LAUGHING ] I'M LAUGHING BECAUSE THE ABSURDITY IS SINKING IN.
I'M USING MY MORE THAN DECADES' WORTH OF EXPLOSIVE ORDNANCE EXPERIENCE TO BLOW UP A SNOO IN THE MOS COLORFUL WAY POSSIBLE.
ALL RIGHT.
I'M READY FOR THE GLITTER WHEN YOU WANT TO STAR HANDING SOME OF THAT.
GOT 'EM.
EXCELLENT.
AWESOME.
THAT'S GREAT.
KEEP IT COMING.
AWESOME.
ALL RIGHT.
IT'S TIME FOR THE INSTALL.
Narrator: WITH THE EXPLOSIVE POSITIONED CENTRALLY, ADAM HANGS AS MANY BAGS OF PAINT AND GLITTER AS THE INTERNAL STRUCTURE OF THE SNOO CAN SUPPORT OH.
OH.
IT'S HOT IN HERE.
Narrator: BEFORE MAKING A QUICK EXIT.
Adam: LET'S GO.
OOH.
THERE WE GO.
OW.
[ LAUGHING ] IT LOOKS HILARIOUS IN THERE.
EVERYTHING SEEMS NICE AND SECURE, THOUGH? IT'S BEAUTIFUL.
HERE, TAKE A LOOK.
AH.
IT LOOKS LIKE A BUNCH OF FRUI AND VEGETABLES HANGING.
I KNOW.
IT'S LIKE A PARTY IN THERE.
YEAH.
ALL RIGHT, REDDITORS! ARE YOU READY? WE HAVE OUR SNOO.
HE'S FULLY INFLATED.
INSIDE HIS HEAD, 2 1/2 POUNDS OF HIGH EXPLOSIVES WRAPPED IN TEMPERA PAIN WITH EXTRA BAGS OF PAIN PLACED ALL INSIDE HIS HEAD, PLUS BONUS BAGS OF GLITTER! I DON'T SEE ANY REASON WHY WE SHOULD WASTE ONE MORE MINUTE OF YOUR TIME.
LET'S GE BEHIND THE BLAST SHIELDS AND BLOW THIS SUCKER UP.
Narrator: THIS IS IT.
SO I'M READY.
SNOO'S READY.
HYNEMAN READY? ADAM AND JAMIE RETREAT TO SAFETY FOR THE FINAL SEASON'S FINAL FAN SUGGESTION.
I'M READY.
STRAIGHT FROM YOUR KEYBOARD TO SUMPTUOUS 25,000 FRAMES A SECOND SLOW-MOTION DETAIL.
REDDITORS, FOR YOUR GRATUITOUS ENJOYMENT WE'RE PAINTING BY NUMBERS.
AND THE NUMBERS ARE 3, 2, 1.
WHOA! [ LAUGHING ] OH, THAT WAS AWESOME.
-THAT WAS FAST.
-THAT WAS FAST.
THERE WAS GLITTER.
THERE WAS PAINT.
THE HIGH-SPEED SHOT'S GONNA BE AWESOME.
YEAH.
Narrator: BRACE YOURSELVES.
THE HIGH-SPEED IS COMING.
THANK YOU, REDDIT.
IT'S BEEN A BLAST.
YOU KNOW, I THINK THAT'S THE FIRST TIME WE'VE EVER BLOWN UP AN INFLATABLE SOMETHING OR OTHER? I'VE BLOWN UP LOTS OF 'EM, WHAT DO YOU MEAN? -REALLY? -YEAH.
I DON'T WANT TO KNOW.
