By now, just about everyone on the internet has seen the video of the Plinko-like machine that appears to magically sort thousands of colored marbles neatly into a rainbow. We always figured it was fake, and now Captain Disillusion explains how he thinks it was done.

Captain Disillusion takes on yet another internet myth – this time its the guy who claims to be able to aim his tape measure with the precision of a crossbow. With the help of a fan, he yet again illustrates how VFX, camera angles, and editing can make anything believable.
