What happens when a slingshot hobbyist and YouTube video maker named Joerg Sprav–who has the accent and diabolical cackle of a James Bond villain–takes on the Oreo separation challenge that Nabisco commissioned a few scientists and inventors to undertake as projects a few weeks ago?
Awesomeness, that's what!
this unsolicited video, Spray doesn't actually answer the challenge of
separating the Oreo so much as he just weaponized the cookie and the
cream. He's constructed a slingshot shotgun which can hold up to 14
cookies at a time and shoot them to make Oreo-shaped holes in things,
like the Amazon box the Oreos came in (why he needed to have a box of
Oreo cookies shipped to him is something I'll ask another day).
goes to show that in the YouTube Age, the greatest inventions are not
spurred by necessity or corporate sponsorships, but the "I can do better
than that" gene.
