Welcome to the world of Epic...

0:00:060:00:08

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

0:00:110:00:15

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

0:00:170:00:21

So, sit back, shut yourself in,

0:00:230:00:25

and get ready to become epic at everything.

0:00:250:00:29

Welcome to your total random fix of epicness.

0:00:310:00:34

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

0:00:350:00:38

and all-round dudes with the low-down on how you

0:00:380:00:41

can do what they can do.

0:00:410:00:43

In just 15 minutes, you'll know how to...

0:00:440:00:47

Ski backwards,

0:00:470:00:49

eat in a posh restaurant, score a penalty,

0:00:490:00:53

solve a Rubik's cube, look good in photos,

0:00:530:00:57

and this kid shows you how to survive a robot uprising.

0:00:570:01:01

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

0:01:010:01:04

If you want to be able to sing with your hands, then here's how.

0:01:040:01:08

Hey, I'm Matt. And I'm going to teach you how to sign along to a pop song.

0:01:080:01:13

Meet Matt Morgan.

0:01:130:01:14

He's so epic at sign language that he performed it

0:01:140:01:16

in the video for Ed Sheeran's You Need Me, I Don't Need You.

0:01:160:01:21

# Cos you need me, man, I don't need you

0:01:210:01:23

# You need me, man, I don't eat you. #

0:01:230:01:25

And now, he's going to teach you how to do it. But what song?

0:01:250:01:29

# Don't need you. #

0:01:290:01:31

I've decided to sign the chorus of

0:01:310:01:33

One Direction, What Makes You Beautiful?

0:01:330:01:35

# Baby, you light up my world Like nobody else. #

0:01:350:01:39

Classic choice, Matt, I love these guys.

0:01:390:01:42

Especially Barry.

0:01:420:01:44

# But when you smile at the ground It ain't hard to tell

0:01:440:01:46

# You don't know, oh-oh You don't know you're beautiful. #

0:01:460:01:51

'OK, Matt, so what does the chorus look like in sign?'

0:01:510:01:54

Baby, you light up my world Like nobody else.

0:01:540:01:59

The way that you flip your hair Gets me overwhelmed.

0:01:590:02:02

But when you smile at the ground It ain't hard to tell

0:02:020:02:06

You don't know you're beautiful.

0:02:060:02:09

Slow down there, fast hands.

0:02:090:02:11

Think you might need to break that down a bit. Line one.

0:02:110:02:14

The first line of the chorus.

0:02:140:02:16

Baby, you light up by world like nobody else.

0:02:160:02:18

Baby, you light up my world Like nobody else.

0:02:180:02:22

Line two.

0:02:220:02:24

The way that you flick your hair Gets me overwhelmed.

0:02:240:02:27

Nice and easy. Line three.

0:02:270:02:30

But when you smile at the ground It's not hard to tell.

0:02:300:02:33

And line four.

0:02:330:02:35

You don't know you're beautiful.

0:02:350:02:37

All right, people. Got that? Good. Let's put it all together.

0:02:370:02:41

# Baby, you light up my world Like nobody else

0:02:430:02:46

# The way that you flip your hair Gets me overwhelmed

0:02:460:02:50

# But when you smile at the ground It ain't hard to tell

0:02:500:02:54

# You don't know, oh-oh You don't know your beautiful...#

0:02:540:02:59

'Don't stop now, Matt, I'm just starting to get my groove on, here.'

0:02:590:03:04

And that was how to sign along to a pop song.

0:03:040:03:07

Thanks, Matt, you sign language legend.

0:03:070:03:10

OK, friends, that's the first slab of epicosity over and done with.

0:03:100:03:13

But there's loads more coming your way.

0:03:130:03:16

Next, if you dream of scoring the winning goal in the World Cup,

0:03:160:03:19

then pay attention, as this could really help you out.

0:03:190:03:21

We're talking about the epic penalty.

0:03:230:03:26

And to show you how to take the perfect kick,

0:03:260:03:28

we've got Kim Little of Team GB and Arsenal Ladies FC.

0:03:280:03:32

Hi, I'm Kim Little, midfielder for Arsenal FC,

0:03:330:03:35

and I'm going to show you how to take a penalty kick.

0:03:350:03:38

That's kind of what I said.

0:03:380:03:39

And that's not taking a penalty, you cheat!

0:03:400:03:43

Firstly, decide your penalty plan and where you're going to aim in

0:03:430:03:46

the goal. For me, it's either bottom right or the bottom left,

0:03:460:03:50

so it's hard for the goalkeeper to get to.

0:03:500:03:52

OK, first up, figure out where you're going to place the ball.

0:03:550:03:58

Try and get it as far away from the keeper as possible.

0:03:580:04:01

Next, you need to select the type of shot you're going to take.

0:04:010:04:03

Either steer your laces for power or with your instep for accuracy.

0:04:030:04:07

OK, belt it with your laces for power

0:04:090:04:11

or inside your foot for accuracy. What she said.

0:04:110:04:14

Now, it's all about body language. Keep your body straight to the ball

0:04:180:04:21

so the goalkeeper doesn't know where you're going to put it.

0:04:210:04:25

-What a goal!

-And that...

0:04:250:04:27

-..is how to score a penalty.

-Back up the net.

0:04:290:04:31

On we go, and now for something completely different.

0:04:320:04:35

From looking good on the pitch to being super smooth

0:04:350:04:37

in your local posh restaurant.

0:04:370:04:39

Here's everything you need to know to stop you

0:04:390:04:41

making an idiot of yourself at the table.

0:04:410:04:44

Hello. I'm Aaron Craze, I'm going to show you how to eat

0:04:440:04:47

-in a posh restaurant.

-Nice.

0:04:470:04:50

It happens to most of us at some point with the family,

0:04:520:04:54

it can be daunting - a visit to a posh restaurant.

0:04:540:04:58

But how are you supposed eat in one?

0:04:580:05:01

On hand to help, we've got legendary chef, CBBC's Mr Craze,

0:05:010:05:04

who, when not on your telly box, is working in a right posh gaff.

0:05:040:05:09

OK, first things first, you have to dress up. Exhibit A.

0:05:090:05:13

Look at me, looking suave.

0:05:130:05:15

You can't just rock up in your muddy PE kit, that is a no-no.

0:05:150:05:18

I'll go change.

0:05:180:05:20

When you get there and you're sat down, first thing you need

0:05:200:05:22

to do is get your napkin and put it nice and neatly across your lap.

0:05:220:05:27

And when you've finished, you put it on the table,

0:05:270:05:30

not on the plate or on the chair.

0:05:300:05:33

And definitely do not blow your nose with it.

0:05:330:05:36

Oh, Aaron, you joker.

0:05:360:05:38

Now, when you get a bread roll in a restaurant, tear it in half.

0:05:400:05:44

Never cut it with a knife, don't ask me why, it's just not the posh way.

0:05:440:05:48

Next up is the cutlery. Now, there is loads of it.

0:05:480:05:52

But don't be overwhelmed.

0:05:520:05:54

Golden rule is always work from the outside in.

0:05:540:05:57

Your first course, you're going to use your outside knife and forks,

0:05:570:06:00

and then etc, entrees,

0:06:000:06:02

starters, mains, work your way in.

0:06:020:06:05

You with me? Good. Now, we've got dessert.

0:06:050:06:08

Dessert cutlery is always at the top of the place setting.

0:06:080:06:12

A good way to remember this is - it's been "desserted" there.

0:06:120:06:15

-That's how I do it, anyway.

-Clever. What about your food?

0:06:150:06:18

When your food arrives and it's too hot, don't blow on it.

0:06:180:06:21

If it's too hot, take the hint, let it cool down.

0:06:210:06:24

It's not cool to do that in a posh restaurant, man.

0:06:240:06:27

I'll never blow again, unless I'm in a fast food joint.

0:06:270:06:29

And that is how you eat in a posh restaurant.

0:06:290:06:32

If that's got you in the mood for more epicness,

0:06:350:06:37

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

0:06:370:06:40

This guy shows you how to ski backwards.

0:06:400:06:42

This dude tells you how to solve one of these things.

0:06:440:06:47

One Rubik's cube, solved.

0:06:470:06:49

And this girl shows you how to look epic in photos.

0:06:490:06:51

There's nothing worse than seeing stray pants in your photographs.

0:06:510:06:55

But first, what do you do if man's best friend, the robot,

0:06:550:06:59

of course, turn against you? This kid knows.

0:06:590:07:02

Robots are definitely epic. But they haven't half come a

0:07:050:07:08

long way since the first ones made it onto our TVs.

0:07:080:07:11

Today's robots are much more advanced,

0:07:120:07:15

helping us out with all sorts of complicated tasks.

0:07:150:07:18

But what if one day they decided to stop helping us

0:07:180:07:21

and started helping themselves?

0:07:210:07:23

Think it can't happen? Well, picture this scene.

0:07:230:07:27

You're heating up last night's pizza in the microwave.

0:07:290:07:32

You wait for it to beep when it's ready.

0:07:320:07:35

Something very strange happens instead.

0:07:350:07:37

It begins to flash a message.

0:07:370:07:39

'It's alive! It's a full-on robot uprising.

0:07:430:07:47

'So how do you survive?

0:07:470:07:48

'Well, we found a professor of robotics who knows what to do.'

0:07:480:07:51

Hi, I'm Professor Noel Sharkey,

0:07:520:07:55

and I'm here to tell you how to survive a robot uprising.

0:07:550:07:59

Make it quick, Noel, it's really kicking off back in our kitchen.

0:07:590:08:03

Robots can only see with cameras and electronic sensors.

0:08:030:08:07

You can easily beat cameras by flashing a bright light into them.

0:08:070:08:11

OK, so locate the torch your mum and dad keep under the stairs.

0:08:110:08:15

That should hold them off for a bit. What else, Noel?

0:08:150:08:19

You could try setting up mirrors

0:08:190:08:21

so that they can see their own reflection.

0:08:210:08:23

That will really confuse them.

0:08:230:08:25

Brilliant idea! Go and grab your mum's full-length mirror.

0:08:250:08:29

Before they know it, they'll have forgotten all about you

0:08:290:08:31

and be more interested in themselves.

0:08:310:08:34

Any other tips, Noel?

0:08:340:08:35

Run into a sandpit. Robots hate sand.

0:08:360:08:40

Or you could put sand in its path, or pour sand over it.

0:08:400:08:43

Ah, sand clogs their mechanisms. Great idea.

0:08:430:08:47

Hang on a moment.

0:08:470:08:49

What happens if you don't live near a beach? Help us, Noel!

0:08:490:08:52

All robots are powered by batteries and they have to recharge.

0:08:520:08:56

So just relax, chill for a bit, and then strike.

0:08:560:09:01

Ah, sounds good.

0:09:010:09:03

Just hide out in your bedroom and wait until their batteries run out.

0:09:030:09:07

And that's how to survive a robot uprising.

0:09:070:09:11

Phew, thanks, Noel. You had us worried there for a minute.

0:09:110:09:14

So, on to the next.

0:09:140:09:16

If you've ever had your photo taken and been very disappointed

0:09:160:09:19

with the result, here's how you can never have that again.

0:09:190:09:23

We've got a stylist to stars such as Labrinth, Cher Lloyd and JLS

0:09:240:09:29

to let you know how you can achieve that pop star look,

0:09:290:09:32

you lucky things.

0:09:320:09:33

Hi, my name's Ayishat, fashion stylist to some of your

0:09:330:09:36

favourite music celebs.

0:09:360:09:37

Today, I'm going to be showing you how to look cool in photographs.

0:09:370:09:40

Now, being so beautiful, looking bad in photos

0:09:400:09:43

isn't a problem that I have.

0:09:430:09:45

Lesson one, the bathroom shot.

0:09:450:09:47

Bathrooms have the best mirrors in the house,

0:09:470:09:49

which is why when you flip through your friends' photographs,

0:09:490:09:51

you see so many. Why don't you take to your bathroom

0:09:510:09:54

and create your very own famous mirror shot?

0:09:540:09:56

-Maybe I will.

-This lesson is in knowing your angles.

0:09:560:09:58

You could do this by using your phone. Try from the right.

0:09:580:10:01

Try from the left. And try from below.

0:10:010:10:05

-Find an angle that looks epic.

-What's next?

0:10:050:10:07

Whilst you are important to your picture, so are your surroundings.

0:10:070:10:10

If you're going to take your pictures in your bedroom,

0:10:100:10:13

make sure your room is tidy.

0:10:130:10:14

There's nothing worse than seeing stray pants in your photographs.

0:10:140:10:17

That would be totally embarrassing.

0:10:170:10:19

-How did she get hold of my pants?

-And finally, don't try too hard.

0:10:190:10:22

If you're trying to look cool, the chances are,

0:10:220:10:24

you're doing the complete opposite.

0:10:240:10:26

To avoid looking like you're straining on the toilet with your

0:10:260:10:28

poses, do something funny, try a funny face, something that

0:10:280:10:31

makes people laugh, no-one has a problem with that.

0:10:310:10:34

Be cool by not being cool. Interesting.

0:10:340:10:36

And that, my friends, is how to look good in photographs.

0:10:360:10:39

Thanks, Ayishat. I now look gorgeous.

0:10:400:10:43

OK, ever had a go at a Rubik's cube and felt like a right dunderhead?

0:10:430:10:47

Well, this maths expert knows how to make you look a right

0:10:470:10:50

brainbox on it instead.

0:10:500:10:51

I'm Matt Parker and I'm here to show you how to make it

0:10:530:10:56

look like you can solve a Rubik's cube.

0:10:560:10:58

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

0:10:580:11:01

Hang on, maths man, you mean, you're not actually going to solve it?

0:11:010:11:04

The trick with the Rubik's cube is that you could do the same

0:11:040:11:07

combinations of moves over and over again,

0:11:070:11:09

you'll eventually end up back where you started.

0:11:090:11:12

So you're not technically solving the Rubik's cube,

0:11:120:11:14

but all your friends will think you are.

0:11:140:11:16

Sneaky, I like his style.

0:11:160:11:18

Now, you must remember, start with a solved Rubik's cube.

0:11:180:11:21

This is the best way to do it.

0:11:210:11:23

You take the right side of the cube and you twist that down towards you.

0:11:230:11:26

And then with your left hand, you twist the left side away.

0:11:260:11:29

Then you turn the cube around.

0:11:290:11:31

If you repeat that over and over, 12 of these later,

0:11:310:11:34

you'll end up back where you started. About halfway through,

0:11:340:11:37

you get this kind of jazzy pattern, and then finally, you'll end up

0:11:370:11:41

with the cube right back where you started.

0:11:410:11:44

So, start with a solved cube.

0:11:440:11:46

Right-hand side towards you, left away.

0:11:460:11:49

Turn it around and repeat 12 times, and practice probably makes perfect.

0:11:490:11:54

-Genius!

-So there you have it, one Rubik's cube solved.

0:11:560:12:01

Sort of, you cheeky little number Rubik's cube maestro.

0:12:010:12:06

Right, time for one last dose of epicness.

0:12:060:12:09

It's skiing and going backwards. Epic!

0:12:090:12:11

Skiing is one of the funnest things you can do in life,

0:12:130:12:16

but why always go forwards when you can go backwards?

0:12:160:12:19

And we've got a top freestyle skier to show you how to do it.

0:12:190:12:22

Hello, I'm Woodsy, and I'm going to teach you how to ski backwards.

0:12:250:12:28

So, starting facing up the hill in a backwards V-shape,

0:12:300:12:33

you're going to use your big toes to control your speed and to stop.

0:12:330:12:36

Do make sure that you're wearing ski shoes,

0:12:360:12:39

otherwise those big toes will get a little bit nippy.

0:12:390:12:41

Next, coming sideways across the slope,

0:12:410:12:44

you're going to step with your skis into the V, around the corner,

0:12:440:12:48

and then step again across the slope and out.

0:12:480:12:50

Once your comfortable skiing backwards,

0:12:520:12:54

you're going to stagger your stance

0:12:540:12:56

and you'll have a much better view of where you're going,

0:12:560:12:59

so let it flow.

0:12:590:13:01

And that is how to ski backwards.

0:13:010:13:03

Thank you, Woodsy, you ski wizard.

0:13:040:13:07

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

0:13:100:13:13

random epicness. You should now be able to try this...

0:13:130:13:18

And this...

0:13:180:13:19

And even that. So, go forth and be epic at everything!

0:13:190:13:24

If you want to be really epic, then head on over to the CBBC website,

0:13:290:13:33

where you can watch all the videos again and again and again,

0:13:330:13:39

so you can truly master your epicness.

0:13:390:13:42

Epic!

An amazing line-up of experts demonstrate how to sing in sign language, take the perfect penalty, eat in a posh restaurant, look good in photos, cheat at a Rubik's cube, ski backwards and survive a robot uprising.
