Each episode, the MythBusters, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, two special effects experts with more than 30 years of experience, methodically set out to bust three urban legends. And they don't just explain if something's true or false: through trial and error, they demonstrate it. Sometimes they crash things, sometimes they blow things up -- all in the name of science.
Adam and Jamie are trying to figure out the theory behind the chaos when diet cola and mentos mix. Inspired by an Internet phenomenon, The Mythbusters take on the controversy surrounding these fizzy fountains.
