In the new pop science series, Duck Quacks Don’t Echo, we test some of the most outrageous facts you’ve never heard. Premiering tonight, Jan. 13, at 10 & 10:30 p.m., co-hosts Michael Ian Black (@michaelianblack), Tom Papa (@tompapa) and Seth Herzog (@Thezog) assess the validity of these and other weird, unusual and over-the-top hypotheses through a series of interactive, original and often hilarious scientific tests.
Michael, Tom, and Seth challenge each other by presenting their best theories — ranging from “Is it possible to stretch a bathing suit cap so far that an adult can fit inside it?” to “When singing the same song, will choir members’ heartbeats synchronize?” The guys put these questions to the test with real, in-studio experiments filmed on a warehouse-style set straight out of a gearhead’s fantasy, with every possible piece of technology you could need. They build hovercrafts out of household appliances, attempt to scale walls using vacuum cleaners and suspend themselves upside down using just superglue. These guys are willing to do just about anything in the name of science!
During remote experiments, scientific experts weigh in to explain the why and the how behind some of the surprising results. Why exactly does wearing red make a woman appear more attractive? What makes the temperature of our noses rise when we tell a lie? We break down the unbelievable facts to reveal the science behind the outrageous theories.
Once each host has defended their honor by carrying out their experiments, the studio audience weighs in. Whose fact is the most impressive, outrageous or interesting? In each episode, only one host can be awarded the coveted “Golden Quack” trophy and of course, more importantly, bragging rights.
Tune in to the series premiere of Duck Quacks Don’t Echo tonight at 10P and be sure to follow the hosts on Twitter as they’ll be live tweeting throughout tonight’s premiere!
