A tiny catapult for throwing pies at bees.

I assume it's all CGI, since it turns into a phone commercial at the end. But -- ha ha, fuck you bee!


Update: Apparently it's not faked. Details here, including recipes.

    That throws never ending PI-ES
    On Jake's ugly FA-ACE
    and he won't know what hit him
    Cause the pies are

    It's never ending pie throwin' time!

        oh... duh.... follow the link. it's explained. mostly.

        "Even with the specialist equipment, the depth of field was literally never more than a few millimetres, meaning that the insects only had to move minutely before going out of focus, or for the pies to miss."

        The specialist equipment is at least expensive high-speed cameras and may or may not (doesn't say) include the motion tracking robots sold by the same company.

    Is there a Nobel Prize we can give to these people? Do they have a Nobel for Comedy, or Awesomeness or something?
