Plunger video: Will be on prime time German TV soon

As you may recall, a German film team visited me a while ago. They filmed me shooting a plunger ("Pümpel") with a slingshot crossbow, for a "science entertainment" show called "Galileo" on the German Pro7 network.


Watch the trailer on youtube

The piece will be a part of a Galileo "plunger" special.

It will air August 25, 7:05 PM. My "turn" will be around 8 PM, truly prime time. The network will make it available worldwide on the web, I will post the link after the show has aired.

  12. Folks, the network will offer the show online for everyone to see after they have aired it on TV. So no matter where you live, you should be able to see it (as long as the web is uncensored).

  19. Josh, yes, your comment qualifies you. If you are a subscriber, you will get an extra spare band set if you win, non subscribing winners will only get the slingshot with one band set mounted. Subscription is free of course.

  30. I really enjoy watching the video demonstrations of your "crafts."Very nice work. I found my way here via gizmodo.com and I'm sure the plunger video will be posted there as soon as it is available.

  31. i saw your recent video on gizmodo.com . Very cool stuff. do you think the blade would have sliced through the meat completely if the meat was thawed, not frozen?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I want a sling shot. My days of yore are in my memories.

    ReplyDelete
  33. This is great, neat sport, beats throwing darts and you can still drink beer later.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Just saw a youtube video if you shooting a spike through a leg of lamb. LOL. I really like the metal slingshot you made. I think it's called the Panther. I don't know what a Cougar is though.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This is such an amazing trailer. Wow!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Man I love all your videos! Thank Gizmodo for making me a subscriber

    ReplyDelete
  37. Heheheh.... Competition for winning one of your sling-shots is getting fierce with new subscribers coming on. But, it's all good. Let the chips fall where they will. Looking forward to the new Plunger show. I even wish they make it a series of you busting crime with your plunger. Heck, it would even make a great cartoon show for the kiddies! (As long as you have a kitty with a sling-shot as a side-kick.) :)

  48. Was really looking forward to the airing of the show. As I do not possess a TV I thought of getting one especially for that purpose (and then send it to you for a massive destruction video with your super slingshot cannon ;-)) Really looking forward to the first shots.
