    I used to have a wooden helicopter back like 2005 and would spin the blades as fast as I could in front of our living room TV. Let me tell you how shocked 5 year old me was when it looked like they were starting to spin in reverse.

    I like the style of this video, it was sort of a debunking video, but also sort of a "how it was done" video like you've been doing lately; hopefully we see more like this in the future. 👍Also, that ending was a real smash ;p

    Guys... if he's an alien, maybe he might show up at area 51?

    Actually, the helicopter just uses jet engines under the body. The blades are just there to improve balance. /s

    When you don't have a ceiling fan but still want to do the experimentguess I'll buy a helicopter now

    How did you do the ceiling fan on head effect? I assume you didn’t use an actual ceiling fan for it. Did you mime the motion and add the fan afterwards or did you use something that looks like a fan?

    Does anyone think captain D's face has gotten wider since his earlier videos? Maybe he could use a fish lens to make his face a normal width lol

    I really enjoy lame jokes in interesting educational videos, the spinning fan bit at the end was great

    The reason why cd doesn’t upload is because he has to do that face paint every time he records

    Why didn't you include an advertisement for ceiling fans and strobe lights?
