How Not To Make Sparkling Wine At Home

sparkling-wine

If you’ve ever wondered how to make sparkling wine at home — and who hasn’t — then you’ll want to watch this video, and then do the complete opposite.

Let’s review what goes wrong here… They’re using a SodaStream to create the carbonation — which should only be used to make seltzer and New Coke-quality sodas. Second, red wine and sparkle just doesn’t go together. Thirdly, it’s a kid, well-below drinking age, at the helm.

Needless to say, the experiment ends badly. Badly, in that a lightly-carbonated red wine ends up on the ceiling. Enjoy.

Your Brain On Coffee, An Educational Video

caffeine-video

Have you ever wondered why coffee has the ability to both keep us awake, and make us feel less stabby in the morning?

Your Brain on Coffee, brought to us by AsapScience, explains what caffeine is actually doing to our mind grapes. Most importantly, we discover what not only makes us crave caffeine, but why we eventually need more and more to remain functional.

The best part… AsapScience also explains why it’s physically impossible to overdose on caffeine. So, throw back all the mocha-choca lattes you’d like, and have fun trying to sleep this week.

What If Fast Food Restaurants Had To Make The Food Look Like It Does In Their Ads?

fast-food-reality

It’s no secret that the ads put forth by fast food companies, don’t accurately represent the food that the customer receives. So, what if the fast food eater fought back, and wanted the more edible-looking version of their food item?

Fast Food Ads vs. Reality Experiment is brought to us by Greg Benson of Mediocre Films. Greg, armed with a hidden camera, confronts the fast food workers that are just doing their jobs — asking if they could modify the food to look more like the misleading photo.

The best part… The fast food workers, for the most part, are very courteous and accept the challenge. And, with that little bit of motivation, they get the food pretty darn close to the one in the picture. Please enjoy.

Realistic Popeye Shows Us What Really Happens When You Eat A Whole Can of Spinach

realistic-popeye

Popeye, the squinty-eyed large-forearmed sailor man, is probably best known for his love of spinach. However, in this video from The Pete Holmes Show, we’re given a realistic take on what would happen if someone ate an entire can of pre-cooked spinach.

We won’t give the ending away… But let’s just say that the outcome is definitely easier to believe than Popeye being able to beat up Bluto, or when Popeye turns his corncob pipe into a blowtorch. Please enjoy.
