Steve Spangler Toilet Papers The Ellen DeGeneres' Studio

In his 15th appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, Steve Spangler brought a few of his science tricks to the talk show.

Steve Spangler Toilet Papers The Ellen DeGeneres Studio

Steve made yet another colossal mess on Ellen’s set as he rigged 60 leaf blowers with 60 toilet paper rolls to launch at the same time. When Ellen pushed the button, the studio was instantly swallowed up by flying toilet paper as a demonstration of Bernoulli’s Principle.

Ellen also demonstrated centripetal force by swinging a tub of water over her head.
