Impotent Inventern Audition

Almost every maker with an appreciation for the advancement of science or explosions wants to work for the Mythbusters. Adam Savage says that he is constantly flooded with requests to work with him, for him, near him… etc. He’s the makersiah. I’m no different. I want to play too.

Finally, Adam heard the pleas of the unwashed masses and opened up a contest to be his intern. His PAID intern. So I, of course, have applied. Unfortunately, being Canadian, I can’t actually win. That’s not a problem, though, it’s not like I’ve let guaranteed failure stop me in the past.

Below is my audition video. and some creepy pictures of my creation.

Neither of these people is Adam Savage.

    Made of 100% pure awesome. Very much a shame you can’t win, you would be awesome. Maybe he could have you on for one show?
