Catching a Human With a Giant Glue Trap! | MythBusters Jr.


Narrator:
BACK AT BUG BUNKER HQ… WHAT THE HECK IS THIS? Narrator:
…VALERIE, RACHEL AND JESSE ARE TESTING AN ADHESIVE MYTH
FOR THE AGES. IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUILD
A GIANT-SIZED GLUE TRAP AND CATCH A HUMAN? THIS ONE
IS DEFINITELY STICKY. Adam: AND AFTER TESTING
AND THEN ELIMINATING A BUNCH OF
STORE-BOUGHT OPTIONS, BECAUSE THEIR
MECHANICAL PROPERTIES JUST WEREN’T UP TO THE SCALE
OF A HUMAN BEING, THE MYTHBUSTERS WENT
FOR SOME MID-SCALE TESTS… OH, MY GOD. DEFINITELY STICKY. …AND SETTLED UPON A GLUE
THEY THINK IS PERFECT AND JUST MIGHT SUCCEED AT THIS. Narrator: AND THAT
IS A WHOPPING 60 GALLONS OF OFF-THE-SHELF RODENT GLUE,
A PROPRIETARY FORMULA THAT COMBINES LINSEED OIL
AND POLYURETHANE DERIVATIVES FOR VISCOSITY
AND ADHESIVE POWER. MY FAVORITE PART IS THAT THEY
ENDED UP WITH A GLUE ACTUALLY MEANT FOR
CATCHING ANIMALS — IN THIS CASE, RODENTS. OH, MY GOSH. I CAN’T EVEN TELL YOU
HOW STICKY THIS STUFF IT. IT IS REALLY GROSS, AND I FEEL LIKE
IT JUST MIGHT WORK. AH, I WAS LICKING
A DIFFERENT FINGER. GOT YOU. YOU UNDERSTAND,
IF WE GET STUCK IN THIS, WE ARE STUCK FOR GOOD. SO NOW IT’S TIME
FOR THE FULL-SCALE TEST. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,
WELCOME TO THE BUSTER MOTEL, WHERE MYTHBUSTERS GO IN, AND
THEY MIGHT JUST NOT MAKE IT OUT. Narrator: SUITABLY ATTIRED… WELCOME TO THE GUN SHOW. Narrator: …VALERIE VOLUNTEERS
TO MAKE THE FIRST RUN. -GOOD LUCK.
-THANK YOU. Valerie: I’M ABOUT TO RUN
THROUGH 450 POUNDS OF GLUE. ALL RIGHT.
CUE THE LIGHTS. I’VE HAD NIGHTMARES ABOUT THIS,
BUT IT’S TIME TO FACE THEM. Narrator:
AND WITH CAUTIONARY CONFIDENCE, VALERIE TAKES THE PLUNGE. UGH! RUN NUMBER ONE,
IN THREE, TWO, ONE. YEAH!
AW! NO! Narrator: ONE SHOE DOWN. Adam: UH-OH! TWO HANDS DOWN. -WE HAVE A STUCK BUG.
-CAN YOU STAND UP? Narrator:
AND VALERIE IS OUT OF THE RACE. I AM NOT MOVING. -WHOA.
-COME ON! WOW! OH, MY GOSH.
VALERIE! Valerie: I SWEAR TO GOD.
I CAN’T MOVE. Narrator:
ROUND ONE IS CONCLUSIVE. OH, THERE WE GO,
AWESOME. THE GLUE KNOCKED
VALERIE’S SOCKS OFF. Valerie: I LIKED THAT SOCK. YEAH!
AW! NO! Valerie: THAT CAUGHT ME.
THAT TOTALLY CAUGHT ME. -TOTALLY CAUGHT YOU.
-TOTALLY. WOW. Narrator:
ROUND TWO, RACHEL IS UP. I HAVE A TECHNIQUE —
THE TWINKLE-TOES. I THINK IT WILL WORK BETTER BECAUSE THE SURFACE AREA
IS LESS, AND I’LL BE ABLE TO PULL IT OUT
QUICKER, SO I THINK IT WILL WORK. MARK MY WORDS. ALL RIGHT.
[ CHUCKLES ] HUMAN TRIAL
OF OUR BUG TRAP. IN THREE, TWO, ONE. GO! AAH! AAH! WHOA! [ LAUGHTER ] WE’LL LET THAT ONE GO. NO, DON’T TOUCH
YOUR ARMS DOWN! OH, YEAH.
OKAY. AAH! I THOUGHT THE TWINKLE-TOES
TACTIC WOULD WORK. APPARENTLY NOT, BECAUSE
I’M STUCK LIKE A BUG. WITH A SCORE OF GLUE 2,
MYTHBUSTERS ZIP, IT’S ALL DOWN TO JESSE. JESSE HAS GOT NO SHOT AT THIS. I’M GOING TO TRY
AND JUMP ONTO THE PLATFORM WITHOUT FACE-PLANTING
INTO A BUNCH OF GLUE. Narrator:
IT SOUNDS LIKE A PERFECT PLAN. THIS IS HUMAN BUG TRAP
IN THREE, TWO, ONE. OH! [ LAUGHTER ] ARE YOU ALL RIGHT? I DON’T KNOW. [ LAUGHTER ] -OH!
-OH, MY GOD. Adam: WELL, JESSE TOOK
A HUGE LEAP AT THE BEGINNING TO, HOPEFULLY, GET FARTHER THAN VALERIE MADE IT
ACROSS OUR BUG TRAP. AND HE DID, [CHUCKLES] JUST BEFORE
FACE-PLANTING INTO THE STUFF. AND HE WAS GENUINELY CAUGHT. UGH! [ LAUGHTER ] I’M STARTING TO THINK I SHOULD
GET A PAIR OF SCISSORS AND JUST CUT YOU OUT
OF THIS SUIT FROM THE BACK. I THINK THAT WOULD BE
A GREAT IDEA. ALL RIGHT.
OKAY. [ FABRIC TEARS ] [ LAUGHTER ] HE’S LIKE A CATERPILLAR
TURNING INTO A BUTTERFLY. RISE! SO, WHEN HE EMERGED
FROM THE SUIT, HE WENT, “APOOM!” [ LAUGHTER ] IT KIND OF SOUNDED LIKE A FART
AND AN EXPLOSION IN ONE, JUST LIKE “POOM!”
RIGHT IN YOUR FACE. Narrator: THERE IS NO CONTEST. I WAS STUCK. I WOULD HAVE DEFINITELY
BEEN STUCK. Narrator: THE MYTHBUSTERS ARE
THREE DOWN, ALL OUT. AND AS THEY SAY,
“THAT’S ALL, FOLKS,” EXCEPT TO CALL THE MYTH. I HAVE TO SAY,
I AM IMPRESSED. THIS IS A LOT WEIRDER
AND A LOT FUNNIER THAN I THOUGHT
IT WAS GOING TO BE. BUT THE QUESTION IS,
HOW DO WE CALL IT? IS IT POSSIBLE TO SUPERSIZE
A BUG TRAP AND CATCH A PERSON? IF YOU CAME ACROSS THIS
IN SOME NORMAL STREET CLOTHES, YOU’D BE CRYING
TO YOUR MOMMY. YEAH, YOU GUYS ALL DID TANK
ON THE FIRST ATTEMPT, SO… TOTALLY CONFIRMED.
I AGREE, CONFIRMED. CONFIRMED.
CONFIRMED. ALL RIGHT, LET’S CLEAN
THIS MESS UP SOMEHOW. ♪♪

  2. Ok so you know that girl say that it was funny it was like poof well… when she smiled at the and you see two fangs so that means she not human she a vampire 😯😱😱😱 oh and you dont believe me then haters are going to hate

  3. Honestly in my opinion the creators of this rodent trap is way too sticky and the when they make the glue they went a bit too overboard but at least it will work

  4. Jessie: "Im gonna jump onto the platform with out face planting into the glue like every one else"

    literly jessie jumping tries to run and face plants into all the glue

    Me in real life watching this crap that i'm addicted to:

    YOU DUM You know what… YOUR SLOW

    Luaghs cuase I don't understand what I said

  5. You could Have die if you lick the glue because the glue stick to your neck and you will slowly lose breath and that is one of the worst way to die
