0:00:170:00:21

Welcome to your total random fix of epicness.

0:00:230:00:26

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

0:00:280:00:31

and all-round dudes

0:00:310:00:33

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

0:00:330:00:36

In just 15 minutes, you will know how to

0:00:360:00:38

make a rain cloud...

0:00:380:00:40

find one of these things...

0:00:400:00:42

act innocent...

0:00:420:00:43

draw a 3D hand...

0:00:430:00:44

erm, sew a banana...

0:00:440:00:46

and this kid shows you how to live like a caveman.

0:00:460:00:49

But before all that,

0:00:510:00:52

it's time for your first course of brilliance

0:00:520:00:54

at the restaurant of epicness.

0:00:540:00:56

If you've got a scooter knocking about in your shed,

0:00:560:00:58

then dig it out quick!

0:00:580:00:59

Scooters, they're just toys for toddlers. Right?

0:00:590:01:03

I mean, look at them. Seriously.

0:01:030:01:06

Scooters are definitely not epic.

0:01:060:01:08

Right?

0:01:080:01:10

Wrong!

0:01:100:01:11

Scoot over, skateboards,

0:01:110:01:13

there's a new wheel board-based kid in town.

0:01:130:01:15

So, want to learn how to do some awesome tricks?

0:01:150:01:18

Of course you do.

0:01:180:01:19

And we've got one of the best scooter riders in the world

0:01:190:01:21

to show you how.

0:01:210:01:23

Hi, I'm Lewis Williams and I am a pro scooter rider.

0:01:230:01:25

Today, I'm going to teach you how to tailwhip.

0:01:250:01:27

A tailwhip? Mm, nice.

0:01:270:01:29

Right, let's do this. Safety gear on, everybody.

0:01:290:01:32

First of all, you need to get comfortable on your scooter

0:01:320:01:35

so we're going to learn how to jump.

0:01:350:01:36

All you need to do, you need to bend your arms and knees and jump up.

0:01:360:01:39

But make sure every time you land, bend your knees.

0:01:390:01:42

Just like this.

0:01:420:01:43

Ta-da!

0:01:450:01:47

Jump, knees bent. Got it. What's next?

0:01:470:01:50

To practise doing the tailwhip,

0:01:500:01:52

you can hold your scooter out in front of you and spin it round.

0:01:520:01:54

Just like this.

0:01:540:01:57

Whoa there, Lewis!

0:01:570:01:58

Easy!

0:01:580:01:59

When you get the feeling of it,

0:01:590:02:01

you can kick it with your back foot and learn to catch it.

0:02:010:02:03

Just one more time for me, Lewis.

0:02:040:02:06

Thank you.

0:02:060:02:07

Now you're ready to put them both together to do the tailwhip.

0:02:070:02:10

First of all, you've got to gather some speed, like this.

0:02:100:02:13

Once you've got some speed, you need to jump,

0:02:130:02:15

bending your arms and knees and kicking the tailwhip round.

0:02:150:02:17

Like this.

0:02:170:02:19

Truly epic.

0:02:190:02:20

So, let's have a look at that again.

0:02:200:02:22

Whoa! Cool moves, Lewis.

0:02:220:02:25

Totally awesome.

0:02:250:02:27

Eat that, three-year-olds.

0:02:270:02:29

And that is how you be epic at a tailwhip.

0:02:290:02:31

Thanks, Lewis.

0:02:310:02:33

Where did he go?

0:02:330:02:35

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

0:02:350:02:39

But chill out, there's loads more coming your way.

0:02:390:02:41

From super scooter skills to amazing art,

0:02:410:02:43

here's a drawing trick that will really impress your mates.

0:02:430:02:47

Art is brilliant.

0:02:470:02:48

Brushes, crayons, paint - you know the score.

0:02:480:02:52

And this girl knows how to make your art really stand out.

0:02:520:02:55

Hi, I'm Michelle Ackerley

0:02:560:02:58

and I'm going to show you how to be epic at drawing a 3D hand.

0:02:580:03:02

Amazing! I love my hands in 3D.

0:03:020:03:04

To do this, you're going to need a large piece of white paper

0:03:040:03:08

-to fit your hand on...

-Uh-huh.

0:03:080:03:09

-..a pencil...

-Yeah.

0:03:090:03:10

-..and some different coloured marker pens.

-Got it.

0:03:100:03:13

So first of all, you need to get your white paper,

0:03:130:03:15

place your hand on it and with a pencil,

0:03:150:03:17

draw all the way around.

0:03:170:03:19

OK, done it.

0:03:190:03:20

Once you've got the outline of your hand,

0:03:200:03:22

you need to grab yourself a thick black marker pen.

0:03:220:03:25

Draw straight lines

0:03:250:03:27

until you get to your pencil drawing,

0:03:270:03:30

then do a curve,

0:03:300:03:31

and a straight line at the end.

0:03:310:03:33

You're going to repeat this all along your hand.

0:03:330:03:36

Yeah, I guess I should have moved my hand first.

0:03:360:03:38

Major fail!

0:03:380:03:40

And then when you get to the fingers,

0:03:400:03:42

do an individual curve for each of your fingers.

0:03:420:03:45

Once you've drawn all your lines on the paper,

0:03:450:03:48

get your different coloured marker pens

0:03:480:03:50

and fill all the white gaps with your colours.

0:03:500:03:52

Oh, looking pretty.

0:03:520:03:54

And that's how you can be epic at drawing a 3D hand.

0:03:540:03:58

Ah. It's coming at me!

0:03:580:04:00

Thanks, Michelle. On we go.

0:04:000:04:03

From magical art to a marine biologist.

0:04:030:04:05

Michelle Ackerley doesn't live in a rock pool but if she did,

0:04:050:04:08

this man would show you how to find her.

0:04:080:04:11

-Hi, I'm The Blowfish and I'm going to teach you how to rock...

-Eh?

0:04:110:04:14

-..a rock pool.

-Oh, I see!

0:04:140:04:17

Low tide is the best time to go rock pooling.

0:04:170:04:20

You'll find loads of weird creatures.

0:04:200:04:22

But the low tide changes from beach to beach

0:04:220:04:24

so you must check before you go out.

0:04:240:04:26

You don't want to get stranded by the high tide and have to be rescued.

0:04:260:04:30

Always go out wearing decent footwear

0:04:300:04:32

and take a bucket with you,

0:04:320:04:34

filled with some seawater and some seaweed.

0:04:350:04:37

It'll allow you to examine your finds.

0:04:370:04:39

Right, let's rock...pool.

0:04:390:04:41

There's some amazing life to be found

0:04:410:04:43

hiding under the rocks of a rock pool.

0:04:430:04:46

So don't be afraid to get in there

0:04:460:04:48

and start checking them out.

0:04:480:04:50

But be careful, some rocks are big and heavy.

0:04:500:04:53

If in doubt, get an adult to help you.

0:04:530:04:55

Adult - check.

0:04:550:04:57

Now, what I'm going to show you now

0:04:570:04:59

is a classic inhabitant of the rock pool.

0:04:590:05:01

You'll find these guys everywhere.

0:05:010:05:03

This is a green shore crab.

0:05:030:05:05

What a looker.

0:05:050:05:06

Oh, Blowfish!

0:05:060:05:08

Lastly, and most importantly,

0:05:080:05:11

always put them back.

0:05:110:05:13

These creatures live here, this is their home.

0:05:130:05:15

So you must put them back safely

0:05:150:05:18

before you go home to yours.

0:05:180:05:20

And that's how to be epic at rocking a rock pool.

0:05:200:05:23

O-o-o-o-o-oh!

0:05:230:05:25

Thanks, Blowfish.

0:05:250:05:26

Let's...leave him to it

0:05:260:05:28

and find out what is still to come.

0:05:280:05:30

Our resident king of uselessness shows you how to do this...

0:05:310:05:35

an acting legend reveals his secrets...

0:05:350:05:37

and this girl does this.

0:05:370:05:39

But first, want to live like an epic caveman?

0:05:390:05:42

Well, this kid will show you how it's done.

0:05:420:05:45

Being a caveman was pretty epic.

0:05:450:05:48

Imagine having to live like that!

0:05:480:05:50

Luckily, you'll never have to.

0:05:500:05:52

Or would you? Picture the scene...

0:05:520:05:55

You're on a scouting trip.

0:05:550:05:56

You've been walking for hours and you desperately need to pee.

0:05:560:05:59

You nip off round a bush.

0:05:590:06:01

But when you come back,

0:06:010:06:03

Akela and your fellow scouters have become cavemen.

0:06:030:06:06

-Huh?

-You've gone prehistoric!

0:06:060:06:08

So how do you live like a caveman?

0:06:080:06:10

We've got top actor and history fan Stephen Graham

0:06:100:06:13

to show you how to go from a scaredy scout

0:06:130:06:16

to a courageous caveman.

0:06:160:06:17

Firstly, to be caveman...

0:06:170:06:20

or woman, or cavekid,

0:06:200:06:21

you had to know how to live in the wild.

0:06:210:06:24

Otherwise, you probably wouldn't even last a day.

0:06:240:06:27

First thing any caveman needs is a place to sleep.

0:06:280:06:32

Yay! Bed!

0:06:320:06:33

-Now you're talking.

-Ah!

0:06:330:06:35

Oh!

0:06:350:06:37

But finding a place to sleep -

0:06:370:06:39

it's not an easy task. You see,

0:06:390:06:42

if the cave was too wide-open,

0:06:420:06:44

you could be attacked by wild animals at night,

0:06:440:06:47

while you slept.

0:06:470:06:48

GROWLING

0:06:480:06:51

The best place to call home

0:06:510:06:52

would be on the side of a cliff.

0:06:520:06:54

The harder to get to, the safer.

0:06:540:06:58

-HE SCREAMS

-Or maybe not!

0:06:580:07:01

Now, once you're settled,

0:07:010:07:03

you need to start thinking about food.

0:07:030:07:05

A burger for me, please.

0:07:050:07:07

-HE SCREAMS

-Before you can eat,

0:07:070:07:09

you need to catch something and kill it.

0:07:090:07:12

But to do that, you need tools and weapons.

0:07:120:07:15

Ooh!

0:07:170:07:18

Right, let's say we've got our animal.

0:07:180:07:21

Now what?

0:07:210:07:22

Cavemen were very resourceful.

0:07:220:07:25

They wouldn't waste any of the animal.

0:07:250:07:27

The meat would be used as food.

0:07:270:07:30

-The bones would be turned into sharper tools.

-A-a-ah!

0:07:300:07:33

And the fur would be used as blankets and basic clothing.

0:07:330:07:37

It's like winning the lottery.

0:07:370:07:38

Not!

0:07:380:07:40

And finally, the last thing to do

0:07:400:07:43

is to find yourself a caveman family.

0:07:430:07:46

Aw-w, I do like a happy ending.

0:07:460:07:48

-Thanks, Stephen!

-Eh!

0:07:540:07:56

So on to the next.

0:07:560:07:58

Don't think that you need to know how to act?

0:07:580:08:00

Wrong!

0:08:000:08:01

Acting is an epic skill that can seriously help you out.

0:08:010:08:04

And to show you how to do it,

0:08:040:08:06

we've got a top Hollywood actor and everything.

0:08:060:08:09

He's been in movies, massive American TV shows

0:08:090:08:12

and now he's going to show you how to use acting

0:08:120:08:15

to get out of a tricky situation.

0:08:150:08:17

I'm David Harewood and I'm going to show you three techniques

0:08:170:08:20

that will help you act your way out of anything.

0:08:200:08:22

Awesome!

0:08:220:08:23

Picture this - you've broken your mum's best vase,

0:08:230:08:25

she's just come home.

0:08:250:08:27

-Uh-oh!

-You need a straight face.

0:08:270:08:29

Give nothing away.

0:08:290:08:30

Good plan, David.

0:08:300:08:32

Now, you do this by clearing your mind

0:08:320:08:34

and staring straight ahead, like this.

0:08:340:08:37

He knows nothing. Look at him!

0:08:370:08:39

Then, your mum asks you right out,

0:08:390:08:42

-"Did you break my vase?"

-Yes.

0:08:420:08:44

Now, at this point, you need to master the innocent look.

0:08:440:08:46

Well, how do I do that?

0:08:460:08:48

You need to keep your nose, your mouth and your brow

0:08:480:08:50

perfectly still but you have to open your eyes wide, like this.

0:08:500:08:53

Eyes wide open, got it.

0:08:530:08:55

"No, Mum. Maybe the dog did it."

0:08:550:08:57

He's definitely innocent.

0:08:570:08:59

And at this point, your mum reminds you

0:08:590:09:01

that the dog is at the vets.

0:09:010:09:02

You need to look confused, fast.

0:09:020:09:05

Now, furrow your brow and squint your eyes,

0:09:050:09:06

as if you're thinking really hard about something.

0:09:060:09:09

I'm thinking I shouldn't have smashed that vase in the first place.

0:09:090:09:11

And if that doesn't work,

0:09:110:09:13

well, you should just come clean and fess up.

0:09:130:09:16

And that is how to act your way out of a tricky situation.

0:09:160:09:20

Thanks, David. You're the best.

0:09:200:09:22

From epic actors to a man who is epic in his own unique way.

0:09:230:09:27

If you want to learn a quick trick then get a load of this guy.

0:09:270:09:31

He's the prince of pointlessness, the emperor of the absurd,

0:09:310:09:35

the saint of silliness.

0:09:350:09:36

He's Max Byrne and he's always got a trick

0:09:360:09:39

that's totally useless but brilliant.

0:09:390:09:42

And this time, you're going to need a banana.

0:09:420:09:45

Guten tag.

0:09:460:09:48

My name is Max Byrne.

0:09:480:09:49

Tss!

0:09:490:09:50

And I'm going to show you how to slice a banana

0:09:500:09:53

without even peeling it.

0:09:530:09:54

-Impossible!

-Watch this.

0:09:540:09:57

Mm-hm.

0:09:570:09:59

-Mm-hm...

-There, it's done.

0:09:590:10:00

Let's have a look.

0:10:000:10:02

So, how did you do that, Max?

0:10:020:10:05

Now, the secret to this trick is a needle and thread.

0:10:050:10:09

Of course.

0:10:090:10:10

OK, so you need to get your needle,

0:10:100:10:12

and you see the ridges all over the banana?

0:10:120:10:14

You're going to place your needle into that first ridge

0:10:140:10:16

and bring it out as close as possible

0:10:160:10:18

to the next ridge on the banana.

0:10:180:10:19

And then you're going to place the needle

0:10:190:10:21

as close as possible to that hole,

0:10:210:10:23

bringing it out the next ridge.

0:10:230:10:25

And you're going to keep going around the banana

0:10:250:10:27

till you get to the last hole.

0:10:270:10:28

And you're going to bring the needle out

0:10:280:10:30

the exact same hole you started on.

0:10:300:10:32

Then grab the two pieces of thread...

0:10:320:10:34

..and pull like that.

0:10:350:10:36

Continue to do that alongside the banana, about 1cm apart,

0:10:360:10:39

and you've got yourself one sliced banana.

0:10:390:10:42

Let's see what we got.

0:10:430:10:45

Useless but brilliant.

0:10:470:10:49

And that's how you slice a banana without peeling it.

0:10:490:10:54

-Now, split!

-Thanks, Max.

0:10:540:10:56

OK, time for one last blast of epicness

0:10:560:10:59

and this is a big one.

0:10:590:11:01

We're going to show you how to make a cloud!

0:11:010:11:04

Clouds are epic.

0:11:060:11:08

I mean, what are they? Look at them!

0:11:080:11:11

They're weird but how cool would it be to make your own one?

0:11:110:11:14

You don't think it's possible? Uh-uh!

0:11:140:11:17

Science genius Fran Scott

0:11:170:11:19

has mastered the elements like some sort of crazy science wizard.

Hi, I'm Fran Scott

0:11:230:11:25

and I'm going to show you how to make the perfect cloud.

0:11:250:11:28

Yes, please.

0:11:280:11:29

You'll need a fizzy drinks bottle, a foot pump,

0:11:290:11:32

some nail varnish remover, some scissors,

0:11:320:11:34

-an old inner tube...

-Classic.

0:11:340:11:37

-..and something to cover your eyes.

-Safety first!

0:11:370:11:40

Take your bicycle inner tube...

0:11:400:11:42

And you want the valve from your inner tube.

0:11:420:11:44

So just snip it out,

0:11:440:11:46

like that.

0:11:460:11:48

Cos what you want to do is put your valve through your bottle top.

0:11:480:11:51

Now, make sure that it fits nice and snugly in your lid.

0:11:510:11:56

Because when this lid is on your bottle,

0:11:560:11:59

you want it to be as airtight as possible.

0:11:590:12:01

Got it. What's next?

0:12:010:12:02

What we're going to do

0:12:020:12:04

is pour a little bit of nail varnish remover into the bottle.

0:12:040:12:08

Pop your lid on and shake your bottle!

0:12:080:12:12

Yeah, shake your bottle!

0:12:120:12:13

So this is evaporating the nail varnish remover,

0:12:130:12:16

turning it into a gas.

0:12:160:12:18

# Ba-ba-ba-ba-ra-ba! #

0:12:180:12:20

Oh, back to clouds.

0:12:200:12:21

Pop your pump on the bottle

0:12:210:12:24

and then you're going to pump air into it.

0:12:240:12:26

Now, get an adult to help you with this bit

0:12:260:12:28

cos it can be pretty dangerous.

0:12:280:12:30

Mum!

0:12:300:12:31

Oh, as you go on, it gets more and more difficult,

0:12:320:12:35

as you go on.

0:12:350:12:36

Then, you want to take your lid off your bottle.

0:12:360:12:39

Like...

0:12:390:12:41

Whoa!

0:12:410:12:44

And that is how to make a cloud in a bottle.

0:12:440:12:48

Pretty good, Fran.

0:12:480:12:49

But do you have anything more epic up your sleeve?

0:12:490:12:52

Now we are going to make a massive rain cloud.

0:12:520:12:55

And even make it rain.

0:12:550:12:58

Yes, let's do this. What do we need?

0:12:580:13:00

To make this happen, I'm going to need a friend.

0:13:000:13:02

-Meet Dr Nate...

-Hi!

0:13:020:13:04

-Hi, Nate.

-..and his liquid nitrogen.

0:13:040:13:06

Hi, liquid nitrogen.

0:13:060:13:08

And to that, we're going to add some really hot water.

0:13:080:13:10

And when the hot water hits the liquid nitrogen,

0:13:100:13:13

that's when you'll see a cloud.

0:13:130:13:15

And this is going to be really epic.

0:13:150:13:18

Oh, I can't wait.

0:13:180:13:19

-Are you ready, Nate?

-I'm ready.

0:13:190:13:21

Three, two, one...

0:13:210:13:23

Go.

0:13:230:13:24

Epic!

0:13:270:13:29

Again please! And the slower, the better.

0:13:290:13:31

It is actually raining.

0:13:330:13:35

Fran. Where are you, Fran?

0:13:350:13:37

Fran?

0:13:370:13:39

And that is how you make an epic cloud!

0:13:390:13:42

Thanks, Fran.

0:13:420:13:44

Now, how do you make it sunny?

0:13:440:13:46

Right, that brings us to the end

0:13:460:13:48

of 15 minutes of totally random epicness.

0:13:480:13:51

You should now be able to try this...

0:13:510:13:53

..and this...

0:13:550:13:57

that...

0:13:570:13:58

and that...

0:13:580:13:59

this...

0:13:590:14:00

this...

0:14:000:14:02

and even that.

0:14:020:14:03

Now, go forth and be epic at everything!

0:14:030:14:07
