Jake from Vsauce3 and I test scenes from Home Alone, Elf and A Christmas Story using only the Scientific Method... and some cow eyes.

I made an unlisted vid to explain why the snowball test is valid since the physics is a bit counter intuitive and enough people brought it up: https://youtu.be/1xEVByU6pyM

Thanks to Lowe's Home Improvement for letting me come out and use the set. Check out their behind the scenes: https://youtu.be/-3fZJv8VIyk


Summary:
We real life tested actual scenes from three Christmas classics in a replica of the Home Alone house:

1) A Christmas Story- Can you really shoot your eye out with a Red Ryder BB gun?
2) Elf- What happens if you actually get hit with a snowball at 95 mph?
3) Home Alone- What really happens if you put a blow torch on your head for 7 seconds?

The winner got to keep the awesome leg lamp and the loser had to wear Ralph's pink bunny suit
