10yr Anniversary of the Nacho Cannon (FAIL?)
Was it an actual FAIL or does it belong in the P&S Stunt Hall of Fame?
Flashback to December 2012: The Chowder Cannon from Camp Out for Hunger 2011 was so successful we decided to bring it back, but this time step it up a notch. Oh.
So, what’s funnier than Clam Chowder or Chili? Nacho Cheese. We also learned from the year before to improve the torque of the cannon and give ourselves extra time for set up (important details for later)
Marc Summers‘ bulls eye shot with the Chili in 2011 confirmed that guest shooters are fun too – and take a little responsibility off of us. Luckily comedian Hal Sparks was was happy to step up:
All that prep, what could go wrong? Everything. Just watch:
Remember when we mentioned getting ready in advance? Well, all that time in the cannon allowed time for the melted cheese to coagulate into a spicy, solid projectile. And poor Pitch. He was checked out and given a clean bill of health, just a little shaken up from the incident.
Once Pitch, aka Intern Rich Liebig, was laughing about the whole situation we knew it would go down in P&S History as one of the greatest stunts EVER… that will never be recreated ever again.
Long live the Camp Out for Hunger 2012 Nacho Cannon!
