Pass The Pepper is an astonishing, social distancing-themed, Rube Goldberg machine that promises a “fool-proof method for completely safe, germ-free passing of condiments across the table.” A two-month collaboration between Joseph Herscher of Joseph’s Machines and Lyle Broughton of JackofAllSpades98, this screen-linked video is chock-full of intricate chain reactions. Many of them look like catastrophic mistakes, only to reveal that they were in the plan all along.
It’s a sequel to Herscher’s Pass the Salt video. Watch that next.
