MYTHBUSTERS May 11th Blow Your Own Sail Sneak Peek Clips

In the May 11 episode, “Blow Your Own Sail,” Jamie and Adam travel to Los Angeles to examine some of Hollywood’s acoustic secrets. The guys attempt to compare sounds fabricated for the silver screen with actual sounds that occur outside of production studios. In true MYTHBUSTERS fashion, the pair seizes the opportunity to extract sounds from rattlesnakes, punches, silencers and, of course, explosions. Back in Northern California, Kari, Tory and Grant take on both Newton’s Law of Motion and cartoons that depict characters being propelled forward by electric fans. The crew puts this myth to the test by attempting to use fans to power small- and large- scale vessels, as well as an awesome jet powered skateboard.
