    Episode 74 – Viral Video Contraptions

    Several internet videos featuring strange contraptions and creations have popped up in Christine's social media feed over the last few months, but we haven't managed to slip them into an episode. Then last week, a painting by the mysterious street artist Banksy sold at auction for $25 million. The crazy story of its creation features an epic prank, a hidden contraption, and a viral video, giving us the perfect excuse to pull all these wild inventions into one goofy episode. The original videos discussed in this episode can all be found on YouTube.  For Bansky's video about the painting Girl and Balloon, check out:https://youtu.be/vxkwRNIZgdYFor the the Rube Goldberg Machine called The Page Turner, go to:https://youtu.be/GOMIBdM6N7QAnd for the world's longest musical model railway from the Miniature Wonderland in Hamburg, Germany, head to:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNvZY6cOijoSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/TalkDescriptionToMe)
