    Where did they find the magic empty soda cans that have no air resistance?

    Try throwing an empty can and see if you can get it to travel in a perfect arc like that.

    MAGIC!

    Either that or it is fake and the cans are added in after the fact.

    looked fake...wait it is. Everyone, drink a pop. Back about 10 ft away from a garbage can and see if you can make it...do that outside. Inside, i can understand if you can do that. And notice how no liquids at all come out. Theres always one drop left at the bottom.

    yea ryan 14 i saw that it hit a forcefield and then fell in, notice how some landed at full speed the suddenly went in a diferent direction and slowed down, i hate to say it but i think certain frames are edited like in flash, they put the movie in flash and move the cans around or something like, i dont know if you can do that in photoshop but it was edited in some way

    Alright so here`s how you do it. You take a pop can. Drill a small hole in the bottom or side. Take a string and knot it. Pull the other end of the string through wherever you want the can to go to. Throw the can, and have someone else pull the string. Get the speed and distance right, it looks like you threw it right in.

    Ha--talk like you know, Irish. That`s the most ridiculous theory I`ve ever heard.

    Of course it was edited. They edited out all the misses. I still thought it was pretty darn cool, though.

    They just posted another one on youtube BTW, if anyone cares:
    http:// www.youtube.com/ watch?v=Z5lICK6JR5E (take out the spaces, of course--the link function here seems to be broken.)

    That one has some outtakes.

    Magnets would not help at all. You would still have to get it really close for it to make a difference and at that point it is still in the trash can
