Sometimes, the best way to work those creative muscles is to… Be curious. What would happen if you… Changed the angle of how you threw a stone on a lake? If you… Wired a AA battery into the slot of a AAA battery? And… Would potatoes fire from a tank?
Obviously, it does, and looks like it survives the experience enough for it to be a real projectile at the end. Did you think that it would just immediately split up into harmless pieces?
It’s a simple video altogether, though the logistics of arranging the whole thing would’ve been difficult. It was great to see that bonus footage after the potato, to see what one of those tanks could do in a Mythbusters sort of way. It does seem that videos that have a short proposition (to show you what happens to ____ when ____ occurs) can tend to reach far enough for us to watch and satisfy our curiousities.
