Science behind funny home videos

New Delhi: Floundering and falling while skateboarding backwards can be an apt can become the subject for a funny home video but demystifying the science behind the back flip can make it more enjoyable, says a new TV show.
'Science of Stupid' and 'Brain Games' two of the best rated shows have been combined into 'Brain Booster @ 9' that began airing recently and is hosted by anchor Manish Paul.
"My role in all of this is to mix the crazy and canny and add to the entertainment quotient of an already entertaining package! The dubbing experience for Science of Stupid is amazing. While there is an amazing team of writer who give me a lot of clever lines, there is a lot of impromptu stuff that we do alongside," says Paul.
The Science of Stupid (SOS) show puts together hilarious home shot videos and then goes on to explain the science behind it.
"I am doing what I do best in the show- bring craziness and mad fun! Add to that science and knowledge and it?s a potent mix of entertainment. I will be presenting the stunts showcasing jaw-dropping stupidity by people around the world and ten will explain the science behind the failed stunt,? says Paul.
The show explains why stunts go wrong when amateurs try to copy them. Each episode examines stunt videos with disastrous endings and explain in scientific terms what factors caused the stunts to fail.
"I wanted to learn about science myself. I actually got to know how to run on a treadmill and do a perfect flip! This is the reason when I got to know about the show and the team showed me a few clips, I found it very interesting," says Paul.
Meanwhile the other show 'Brain Games' host Jason Silva gets inside head and shows what's really going on in there with an intricate series of interactive experiments designed to mess with mind and reveal the inner-workings of brain.
"It shows how money has the ability to blind and activate the brain depending on the situation, how strong their moral fibre is when faced with an ethical dilemma, and whether they are right-brained or left-brained.
