About the Show

Using Tim Shaw’s engineering knowledge and Buddy Munro’s gutsy physicality, the duo recreate some of the world’s most amazing internet videos. Clips of people spinning on office chairs propelled by petrol powered garden equipment inspire Tim to build a world-beating swivel chair that poor Buddy must road test. The duo then tackle the chaotic force of a fire-hose rodeo ride after seeing a champion holding tight as it whips and bucks. Finally in Tbilisi, Georgia Tim must determine if a German soccer team executed a mind-boggling trick shot from a bus at high speed, or if the players are part of a conspiracy to perpetrate an elaborate internet hoax.
