Welcome to the world of epic!

0:00:060:00:09

The place where you can become a master at everything on the planet!

0:00:110:00:16

No matter what it is, this programme shows you how to do it.

0:00:170:00:22

So sit back, strap yourself in and get ready

0:00:220:00:26

to become Epic @ Everything!

0:00:260:00:29

Welcome to your total random fix of epicness.

0:00:300:00:35

We've got an amazing line-up of experts, hotshots and all-round

0:00:350:00:39

dudes with the low-down on how you can do what they can do.

0:00:390:00:42

In just 15 minutes, you will know how to...

0:00:440:00:47

shred on a guitar,

0:00:470:00:49

do the robot,

0:00:490:00:51

do impressions,

0:00:510:00:53

make the perfect paper aeroplane,

0:00:530:00:55

sign that you need a wee,

0:00:550:00:57

and this kid shows you how to beat a T-rex.

0:00:570:01:01

But before all that it's time for your first taste of epicness.

0:01:010:01:05

We all know that wheelies are cool, so, lucky for you,

0:01:050:01:08

we've got the master of them to show you how to do one.

0:01:080:01:12

This guy is the world record holder for the longest wheelie ever.

0:01:170:01:21

It was eight miles!

0:01:210:01:22

That's, like...eight miles!

0:01:220:01:25

I'm going to show you how to do a brilliant wheelie.

0:01:260:01:29

Make sure your back brake is razor-sharp,

0:01:320:01:34

your back tyre is over-inflated and really hard.

0:01:340:01:38

Choose third or fourth gear. Normally I choose fourth gear.

0:01:380:01:41

It's easier to keep balance point.

0:01:410:01:44

OK, back brake, hard tyre, third or fourth gear.

0:01:440:01:46

But remember, don't saddle up before sticking on your helmet.

0:01:460:01:50

Got to protect that noggin.

0:01:500:01:51

Now you're ready to try a wheelie.

0:01:510:01:53

First thing is you want to choose a flat spot on the ground.

0:01:530:01:56

Mark a line where you're going to start your wheelie.

0:01:560:01:59

Once that spot is reached, pull evenly on your handlebars

0:01:590:02:02

and pedal down at the same time.

0:02:020:02:04

Once you reach balance point, you'll feel weightless.

0:02:040:02:07

Keep your arms straight and parallel. You use your back brake

0:02:070:02:10

and your pedal motion to maintain your wheelie.

0:02:100:02:12

Put your brakes on, Aaron, let's rewind.

0:02:120:02:15

Pulling up while you pedal on the down stroke will push your bike

0:02:150:02:18

up in the air. But remember, take it easy at first.

0:02:180:02:22

You won't be able to do it straightaway.

0:02:220:02:24

Once you've done that you'll do amazing wheelies.

0:02:240:02:26

Don't break my world record!

0:02:260:02:28

Thanks, Aaron. I'll try not to.

0:02:280:02:30

The boy who really should have been bought a unicycle when he was a kid.

0:02:300:02:34

So that's the first part of epicosity done with,

0:02:340:02:36

but hold tight because there's more coming your way.

0:02:360:02:39

Next, time to bust some serious moves.

0:02:390:02:42

And I'm not talking about the hokey cokey! Oh, no.

0:02:420:02:45

We're talking about the robot,

0:02:450:02:47

one of the most epic dance moves ever.

0:02:470:02:50

"But how do you do it?" I hear you ask. Watch and learn.

0:02:500:02:54

Hi, I'm Turbo, a dancer.

0:02:550:02:57

And I'm going to show you how to do the robot.

0:02:570:03:00

Meet Turbo.

0:03:000:03:02

This dude is an expert street dancer

0:03:020:03:04

and one of the judges on Alesha's Street Dance Stars.

0:03:040:03:08

Doing the robot is one of the coolest ways of dancing.

0:03:080:03:11

The best way to learn it is to move three areas of your body

0:03:110:03:13

one at a time.

0:03:130:03:15

Your head, your torso, and your feet.

0:03:150:03:18

You need to get each part of your body used to the robotic movement

0:03:180:03:21

before you can do it properly.

0:03:210:03:22

Starting with the head. First, our face forwards.

0:03:220:03:25

Look over to your left. Look forwards again.

0:03:250:03:29

Look over to your right.

0:03:290:03:31

Then back to the centre. Keeping everything absolutely still.

0:03:310:03:35

After you've done the head, you then need to move your torso.

0:03:350:03:38

Keeping your head and your feet facing forwards,

0:03:380:03:41

you're going to turn your torso to the left.

0:03:410:03:43

Back to the centre, then to the right.

0:03:430:03:46

Then face the front.

0:03:460:03:47

-And now for the feet.

-I think I know what's coming here.

0:03:470:03:50

Keep your torso and your head facing forwards,

0:03:500:03:53

and then shift your feet over to the left,

0:03:530:03:55

back to the centre.

0:03:550:03:57

-Then to the right, back to the centre.

-I knew it!

0:03:570:04:00

Once you've got each body part moving like a robot,

0:04:000:04:03

you can create your own sequence.

0:04:030:04:05

For example...

0:04:050:04:06

Head, torso, feet.

0:04:060:04:09

Head, torso, feet.

0:04:090:04:13

OK, I'm starting to feel this now, Turbo.

0:04:130:04:15

And when you become a pro like me, this is how you do it.

0:04:150:04:19

Oh, yeah! C-3PO, eat your metal heart out.

0:04:210:04:24

This robot has got some smoking moves and hair.

0:04:240:04:27

And that, my friends, is how you do the robot.

0:04:290:04:32

From dancing like a robot to doing impressions of celebrities.

0:04:340:04:38

This next one will have all your mates cracking up.

0:04:380:04:40

Doing impressions is epic.

0:04:430:04:46

I love it!

0:04:460:04:48

But how do you get to be awesome at pretending to be somebody else?

0:04:480:04:53

You're an idiot.

0:04:530:04:55

Who better than the telly queen of impressions herself

0:04:550:04:58

-to tell us how it's done.

-Tell me you are kidding me.

0:04:580:05:01

Hi, I'm Debra Stephenson, and I'm going to show you

0:05:010:05:04

how to be epic at impressions.

0:05:040:05:06

Sounds good to me, Debra. Tell us more.

0:05:060:05:09

You want to do an impression of someone,

0:05:090:05:11

you need to study them really carefully.

0:05:110:05:13

It's not just the voice you're looking for,

0:05:130:05:15

it's all sorts of things, so let's break it down.

0:05:150:05:18

Mannerisms are a really important thing to look for. Stacey Solomon...

0:05:180:05:21

-Ah! Thank you for having me.

-A second time.

-I know!

0:05:210:05:24

All you have to do is this...

0:05:240:05:26

"Ohhh, ohh! I can't believe it!"

0:05:260:05:28

OK, Debra, what else should we be doing?

0:05:280:05:31

Don't forget to look for the accent.

0:05:310:05:33

It seems obvious but if someone's got a regional accent,

0:05:330:05:36

that gives you something very definite to work with.

0:05:360:05:39

So somebody like Cheryl Cole, for instance...

0:05:390:05:41

I played to Newcastle which was always a childhood dream of mine.

0:05:410:05:44

Practise saying... NEWCASTLE ACCENT: Cheryl Cole soul.

0:05:440:05:48

And that was amazing. You totally nailed that.

0:05:480:05:51

Look out for catchphrases, and key words,

0:05:510:05:53

because that makes things easier.

0:05:530:05:55

For instance, Tess Daly always says, "Keep dancing!"

0:05:550:05:59

Keep dancing!

0:05:590:06:02

Finally, look out for any minor speech impediments

0:06:020:06:06

such as a lisp or a lazy R.

0:06:060:06:07

And then if you got a lisp and a lazy R and you just put it back

0:06:070:06:10

in your throat and you've got a northern accent as well,

0:06:100:06:13

with an enthusiastic and bubbly personality,

0:06:130:06:15

and all of a sudden you've got Helen Skelton!

0:06:150:06:17

It's everything rolled into one. Good luck!

0:06:170:06:20

Let me tell you a secret.

0:06:200:06:22

Ah, well done, Debra! You can have a Blue Peter badge for that one.

0:06:220:06:25

And that is how to be epic at impressions.

0:06:250:06:29

Thanks, Debra! Right, feeling epic?

0:06:290:06:31

Then wait until you see what's still to come.

0:06:310:06:34

This girl shows you how to make one of these.

0:06:340:06:37

And there you have it, the ultimate paper aeroplane.

0:06:370:06:40

-This dude tells you how to sign...

-I need the toilet.

0:06:410:06:45

And this guy shows you how to do this. Wow!

0:06:460:06:50

Anyway, do you like T-rexs? Reckon you could take one on?

0:06:530:06:57

This kid shows you what to do.

0:06:570:06:59

Looking for epic dinosaurs?

0:07:030:07:05

Well, look no further than the mighty T-rex.

0:07:050:07:07

ROARING

0:07:070:07:09

They may be extinct, but just imagine

0:07:100:07:13

if things were a bit different.

0:07:130:07:14

Picture the scene.

0:07:140:07:17

Your mum asks you to go and look after your neighbour's pet,

0:07:170:07:20

let's call him Rex.

0:07:200:07:22

But when you go over, you discover Rex isn't a Yorkshire terrier

0:07:220:07:26

but a massive great dinosaur!

0:07:260:07:28

And because he's skipped breakfast, he's pretty mad.

0:07:280:07:31

ROAR!

0:07:310:07:33

Sounds like you'd need some basic dinosaur handling skills,

0:07:330:07:36

and this is the guy to speak to.

0:07:360:07:38

He's a palaeontologist, which means he's an dinosaur expert.

0:07:380:07:42

Hi, I'm Dr Phil Manning,

0:07:420:07:44

and I'm going to teach you how to beat a T-rex.

0:07:440:07:47

Not that it's ever going to happen to you.

0:07:470:07:50

All right, Phil, you've obviously never met next door's pet!

0:07:500:07:54

So what should we know?

0:07:540:07:56

Firstly, don't believe the movies.

0:07:560:07:59

This animal had a great sense of smell and amazing eyesight.

0:07:590:08:03

In fact, their eyeball was bigger than a cricket ball. That's big!

0:08:030:08:08

What?! Jurassic Park lied to us?

0:08:080:08:12

Standing very still definitely won't help.

0:08:120:08:14

A T-rex will be able to both see and smell you.

0:08:140:08:18

But what could we do to stop ourselves getting eaten?

0:08:180:08:21

So, let's say you want to take on a T-rex. Don't!

0:08:210:08:24

These animals are 13 foot high.

0:08:240:08:27

You've got to go on step ladders

0:08:270:08:28

if you just want to take a pop on the nose!

0:08:280:08:31

13 feet? We're not still living in prehistoric times, Phil.

0:08:310:08:35

T-rexs were nearly four metres high.

0:08:350:08:37

That's the same size as a double-decker bus.

0:08:370:08:40

Anyway, just say we had our step ladders. What then?

0:08:400:08:43

T-rex weighs in at 7.5 tonnes.

0:08:430:08:46

So even if you did get a swing in, you wouldn't have much of an impact.

0:08:460:08:50

Right, the odds of actually beating a T-rex

0:08:520:08:54

are starting to look a bit slim. Any secret tips, though, Phil?

0:08:540:08:58

The only chance you'd have of beating a T-rex is by taping its jaws shut.

0:08:580:09:02

But don't forget, the skull is still six feet long,

0:09:040:09:07

with teeth like killer bananas.

0:09:070:09:10

Killer bananas? Doesn't sound that scary to me.

0:09:100:09:14

But I think we know what you're trying to say, Phil.

0:09:140:09:16

If all else fails, my best advice, make friends with the T-rex.

0:09:190:09:23

It might work!

0:09:230:09:25

You know what, Phil, funnily enough,

0:09:250:09:26

I'm not sure these fellas are the making friends type.

0:09:260:09:29

Our advice, if you ever come face-to-face with a T-rex, just run!

0:09:290:09:33

Good luck with that!

0:09:330:09:35

So, on to the next.

0:09:370:09:39

If your paper aeroplanes are taking more of a nose dive

0:09:390:09:41

than soaring through the sky, then this is for you.

0:09:410:09:44

Meet Fran Scott, a qualified scientist

0:09:450:09:48

and professional experimenter.

0:09:480:09:50

She's presented with some of the best science minds around,

0:09:500:09:53

apart from Einstein and Newton.

0:09:530:09:54

Hi, I'm Fran Scott,

0:09:540:09:56

and we're going to look at how to make the ultimate paper aeroplane.

0:09:560:10:00

-Epic!

-Here it is, and here's how you do it.

0:10:000:10:02

Take a piece of A4 paper.

0:10:020:10:04

Fold it in half,

0:10:060:10:08

then fold the two sides

0:10:080:10:10

into the middle diagonally.

0:10:100:10:12

To make the nose of the plane, fold in the short end eight times.

0:10:150:10:19

Then to make the wings of the plane,

0:10:230:10:25

simply fold it in half

0:10:250:10:27

and then fold it back on itself.

0:10:270:10:30

So, fold the paper back about two to three centimetres in...

0:10:310:10:35

..and then do it for the other wing.

0:10:360:10:39

Maybe a little bit neater than Fran's!

0:10:390:10:41

Finally,

0:10:410:10:43

fold the very ends of the wings up.

0:10:430:10:45

So, to finish it off, use small folds on the wings.

0:10:470:10:50

Just like that.

0:10:500:10:52

And there you have it. The ultimate paper aeroplane.

0:10:540:10:58

On we go. Ever needed the loo? Yes.

0:11:010:11:04

Don't want the whole room to know you need a wee? Obviously.

0:11:040:11:07

Well, try some toilet-based sign language.

0:11:070:11:10

Hi, I'm Matt.

0:11:100:11:12

And I'm going to tell you how to sign "I need the toilet".

0:11:120:11:16

This guy is a sign-tastic superstar. Watch and learn.

0:11:160:11:20

Firstly, it's important to know

0:11:200:11:21

in sign language, they drop loads of words.

0:11:210:11:23

-So "I need the toilet" essentially becomes, "Toilet where?"

-OK.

0:11:230:11:27

The first word is toilet and to do this you take your middle finger

0:11:270:11:31

-and rub it on the right side of your chest.

-Understood.

0:11:310:11:33

The next word is where, and all you have to do to sign this

0:11:330:11:36

is put your hands out in front of you and wave them around in circles.

0:11:360:11:40

-Dead easy.

-Put them together and it looks like this.

0:11:400:11:42

And that is how to sign "I need the toilet".

0:11:450:11:47

Yeah, but Matt, I actually do need the loo. Where is it?

0:11:470:11:52

Right, time for one last dose of epicness

0:11:520:11:54

and this is one truly epic guitar trick.

0:11:540:11:57

PLAYS EPIC RIFF

0:11:570:12:00

And luckily for you we've got one of the fastest guitarists in the world

0:12:000:12:03

to show you a quick trick.

0:12:030:12:05

Steady on! You're going to break that thing!

0:12:050:12:08

That definitely will break that thing.

0:12:100:12:12

Hi, I'm Herman Li, guitarist of the band Dragonforce.

0:12:120:12:15

I'm going to show you a cool trick called tapping.

0:12:150:12:17

PLAYS GUITAR

0:12:170:12:19

OK, you're going to take your index finger

0:12:240:12:26

and put it on the smallest string on the guitar,

0:12:260:12:29

which is the E string, on the fifth fret.

0:12:290:12:31

-The frets are the lines across the neck on the guitar.

-OK.

0:12:310:12:35

And with your right hand,

0:12:350:12:36

tap with your middle finger

0:12:360:12:38

on the 12th fret, OK, like this.

0:12:380:12:41

Right hand, middle finger on the 12th fret, got it.

0:12:430:12:46

At the same time, you see little pinky there?

0:12:460:12:49

Press on and off the string on the eighth fret.

0:12:490:12:52

OK, so put your pinky, also known as the little finger,

0:12:520:12:55

-on the eighth fret.

-So let's see how it works.

0:12:550:12:58

PLAYS NOTES

0:12:580:13:00

Ooh, that sounds lovely. But...what's the endgame?

0:13:050:13:08

Start slow, build up your speed,

0:13:110:13:13

and once you're comfortable with it, you can do something like this.

0:13:130:13:16

PLAYS NOTES AT SPEED

0:13:160:13:18

Whoa, hang on, there!

0:13:190:13:21

That is brilliant, but it might take a while to get THAT good, though.

0:13:210:13:24

And that's how you do tapping on the electric guitar.

0:13:270:13:29

Thanks, Herman!

0:13:290:13:32

Right, that brings us to the end of 15 minutes of total random epicness.

0:13:320:13:36

You should now be able to try this...

0:13:360:13:39

and this...

0:13:390:13:40

and even that.

0:13:400:13:42

Now, go forth and be epic at everything!

0:13:420:13:46

If you want to be really epic,

0:13:500:13:52

then head on over to the CBBC website

0:13:520:13:55

where you can watch all the videos again,

0:13:550:13:58

and again, and again!

0:13:580:14:01

So you can truly master your epicness.
