Putting Weird Things Through A Water Filter (TEST)

– Today we're using filters for something other than water and Instagram – Let's talk about that

(upbeat music) (flames roaring) Good Mythical Mornin'! – We've got an action-packed show for you today We're gonna be ranting about the hassles of travel while sucking on helium and we're gonna be sampling a bunch of discontinued candies, including one that is 50 years old – Oh But, first, we're going into experiment mode with water filter pitchers Yes, they're made for water, but what happens if we put other liquids through them? It's time for "Will This Water Filter, "Make Things Taste Off Kilter?" – That's right

We're gonna push water filters past their limit by sending non-water substances through them and noting, for science, and posterity, what happens – In case you're curious, we're going to be using the Zero Water Pitcher, not a sponsor because the Mythical crew did some tests and it showed that that was the best one to use for what we're going to put through it Let's keep the situation fluid and start filtering (suspenseful music) – If you're an avid listener to our podcast, "Ear Biscuits," it comes out every week, then, you know that I'm an avid family man RV-er Yeah, I like to load up my family and

– You've done it one time – Yeah (Rhett laughing) I have plans to take my family on an RV to Mountain Dew

– Oh – It's beautiful this time of year and I wanna bottle our Mountain Dew at the source Now, we're gonna find out, once I bring it back for the kids, what happens once we filter it, get out all the? I don't know if the mountain is gonna come out or the dew? – I think the mountain's gonna stay in the filter and the dew's gonna come out in the wash (blowing raspberry) – It's ringing like a cellular telephone (blowing raspberry) – All right, let's see what happens (clock ticking) – Okay – It looks blue but that's just the color of the pitcher

It's a teeny bit cloudy Let's pour it next to the real thing (liquid pouring) – [Link] There's no fizz – [Rhett] There's no carbonation and there's very little color That's the dew

That's the dew, bro! Bro, that's just the dew – Hey! It completely filtered out all of the mountian – Now we just have mountain in this filter We could sell mountain filters – Yes! – You want a filter that's just got mountain in it? (crew laughing) – There it is

– I'd buy that – 80 dollars – Oh, good price Take a swig You know what mountain dew tastes like

Not as good as Mellow Yellow – I'm gonna hold my reaction until – I can still taste Mountain Dew

– I can't because I tasted Mountain Dew right beforehand – Yeah I think that put me in the perfect It put me right in the- – I thought it freakin' just straight up water – Next to Mountain Dew, you probably thought that but – I was freaking out inside and just waiting for you to join me

I thought we were gonna have a mountain top celebration – Something made it through A little piece of the mountain made it through You can taste a little It actually tastes like flat La Croix at this point

(crew laughing) It tastes like a lemon-lime La Croix – I get it I get it – You get it? – That's flat – That's what I said

– Yeah – Yeah – So, if you're into that flat, tepid La Croix, then you know what you need to do (suspenseful music) – If you love a burning sensation in your mouth but you're afraid of eating fire, then ask your dentist if Listerine is right for you – Oh! – Whoa! – That wasn't as cool as

Cool as I thought it would be – Accidents do happen Let's start filtering some mouth wash

– I was trying to do this and it was gonna be awesome – That was cool the second time – Okay Now, this stuff right here – I mean, this has got some strong flavors It's also very difficult to open (crew laughing) – There we go – Oh, okay

– Glug, glug, glug, glug, glug, glug, glug (clock ticking) – Okay – All right It is filtered and I am gonna predict that the alcohol part of it did make it through because I've heard of people taking cheap vodka and then filtering it – And filtering it

– Multiple times in order to make it better vodka, which, according to my research, which was just reading, it makes it nominally better but not as good as – This is 21 – Top shelf

– This is 216 percent alcohol so, like, 40 proof – Wow – So But it took the green out – [Link] Yeah It's clear – Zero water

Takes the green out of Listerine That's your new campaign You're welcome – That is pleasing to me Okay

– Now, let's both start – Don't drink that first – We know what Listerine tastes like – Yeah – We don't wanna

– It's really strong so – Foul up our mouths Oh, first of all, it smells just like Listerine – It does It smells Well, smell of this Oof, no The flavor is gone It's just freakin' alcohol now

(crew laughs) – I think I can sip a little bit – Well, now that all the mouth-washy part's gone, yeah – I'm just gonna sip a little bit Oh, man I would just think that I was drinking mouth wash

– But taste that now We need to compare because I would think that it's unchanged but since this has to be stronger- – Oh no! (crew laughing) Whoo! Whoo! If you're in the mood for drinking mouth wash, filter it first

(suspenseful music) – They say that chicken soup is good for the soul but is it good for the mouth, post-water-pitcher-filter? – Mmmm Mmmm! Only one way to find out – You're just gonna, I mean, dump the noodles and everything? – I don't wanna get it on myself (crew laughing) Oh Yeah, why not? – [Link] Clump, right there

(clock ticking) – The noodles did not make it through – Nope, look at them Don't cover them up They wanna get some air They're just sittin' there, flat and sad

– Chicken didn't make it through – All right Veggies didn't make it through but something made it through because it is cloudy (soup splashing) (crew laughing) – You gotta have a confidence – Yeah, you gotta do it

You can't – I wanna go in unison – Don't second-guess yourself – 3, 2, 1 (soup splashing) (crew laughing) – [Rhett] There you go That's confidence – Nailed it Oh gosh

Okay You know what? If it's good for the soul, it can be good for the floor – Yeah – Wow Okay

– Go for it – This is like – Chicken noodle soup

– This is chicken noodle soup Yeah, just chicken noodle soup – This is like cheap, sodium-free, noodle-free, chicken-free, carrot-free, chicken noodle soup – I bet you the sodium is one of the things that made it through – It still smells very chicken-y

– Mmm-hmm You no likey? Linky don't likey? – It's weird because it's the consistency of water – Again, it's just an essence of chicken noodle – It's an essence I mean, you would think this would be very flavorful, but it's not, is it? – No, not at all

– It's very mild – I could get through a lot of this before I realized something was wrong You remember like when you would come in from PE and get hold of that water fountain? (gasping) And just suck the whole thing down? I could get a half gallon of this stuff down before I was like, "It's an essence of chicken noodle soup

" (suspenseful music) – We are very excited to announce a new product, "Good Mythical Beer!" – Here it is Look at that label Isn't it great? – Actually, it's just Budweiser in a bottle that says "GMM" on it – [Link] Yeah We're not gonna sell beer

– Okay – But, contrary to popular belief, we are both slightly over 21 – Yep

Mmm-hmm – Okay – It's hard to tell – Oh, that hurt a little (crew laughing) All right

Now, typically, when you pour a beer, you don't wanna over fizz it so you wanna bank shot it There we go – I don't think that's necessarily – I know how to pour a beer! (clock ticking) She's filtered – I can see a little color in there Let's see what it looks like in the open – Because we know that the alcohol's gonna come through, based on the mouth wash Oh man, that's clear! – [Rhett] But where else does flavor come from in beer? – [Link] You're a horrible beer-pourer

– Nope This is how they do it on the commercials, man Big head! – There is none here No froth but it looks like a well-hydrated person peed in a glass (crew laughing) This looks like an under-hydrated person

– Smells like beer But, again, an essence of beer – Does it smell like not as much beer? – Oh, not even close and it doesn't smell like it's got any good flavors in it It kinda just smells like – Yeah, it I don't expect this to be good at all

Of course, I don't know if I expected that to be good – [Rhett] Yeah That is almost nothing It's almost like somebody walked into a party with a Budweiser – Hey! (Rhett laughing) Great party! This is weaker than that

This is weaker than, "Great party!" guy – It's really, really subtle – [Link] But it tastes like something – I kinda like it – [Link] Better than Budweiser

– Super light beer (crew laughing) The lightest We've got the lightest beer – Come to our party (suspenseful music) T-I-L, when people talk about clean living, it has nothing to do with drinking Windex

Hmm No, we're not gonna drink this – We're gonna filter it, – Right and then we're just going to see if it retains its cleaning power post-filter Glug, glug, glug it! It's blue

I mean, it looks just like that daggone mouth wash, man (clock ticking) – Okay Let's pour it back in Again, we're not drinking this, we're actually going to test its actual cleaning properties and see- – Whoa, whoa, whoa if they've changed at all

– Okay, get a nice precision pour on this thing – Okay, okay Oh – Ew – Whoa

– [Link] It's clear! – [Rhett] The blueness is gone That's enough – Maybe all it's taking out is the color? It still smells really strong – Yeah, it smells like it's still got some cleaning properties but we have brought in, this is not just a new decoration, we're going to be cleaning this window We've got tomato paste

hand prints – Hand prints here – [Rhett] So, we've got a couple paper towels back here

I'm gonna spray her down – All right I have the original Windex, Rhett has the filtered Windex (nozzle spraying) – [Rhett] Okay Oh, man

– [Link] Okay – I think there's an initial difference Yours is really dissolving it – Look at that There's like nastiness is running down

Spray some more over there I went pretty heavy – Mine is seriously not dissolving it Yours is breaking it down Yep

– Well, mine's breaking down a little bit but not to the degree that yours is Now, let's just – Some magic missing in yours that's been filtered out

– Let's wipe easy You wiping from the front or the back? (crew laughing) – [Link] Always wipe from the front to the back – [Rhett] Well – [Link] Any? – [Rhett] We sprayed so much – [Link] Mine should look great

There's no doubt about that Does it? – [Rhett] Mine's smearing quite a bit – [Link] So is mine though I got some smear-age – No, not to the degree that mine is

– [Link] Let's come out here and take a look, see about the difference I'm gonna tell ya right now, it look looks the same! (crew laughing) It doesn't look any different You still cleanin', see? Look, you're gettin' down to perfection – The blue in Windex is just lie? (crew laughing) – We've been lied to It could be any color

– It could be any color – It could be dookie brown! – It should be dookie brown because of the – Windex! Now in dookie brown! – Deception! Let's do it

Let's have a party where we drink some ultra light beers – And a little hint of chicken noodle soup water – And then we just wash everything down with the dookie brown! (crew laughing) – Oh gosh All right We learned some stuff, hopefully, you did and, once again, we have saved real scientists tons of effort, like we always do on this show

– You're welcome, scientists Stick around to watch us do our helium balloon rant about traveling Breakfast just got better with the GMM mug, in orange and black, available at mythicalstore
