David Letterman’s Late Night Suits of Physics

Watch more with these video collections:

This late night talk show video suggestion from a dad and his five year old takes us back to 1984, an era when David Letterman wore suits that got us grinning and wondering, “WHAT is going to happen this time?” Each suit celebrated physics in some way, from suits of sponges, to rice crispies, to potato chips, to alka seltzer — with the help of an oxygen mask to shield him from the carbon dioxide being released from the tablets.

Two of our favorites: Dave hanging around in a suit of velcro, above, and a suit of magnets, below:

Thanks, @jimbrayton (and thank you, Dave).
