The science entertainment series, Mythbusters came to our screens in 2003 and had their final episode on 7 February 2018. The aim of the show was to entertain people by uncovering the truth behind popular myths and legends, mixing scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to create their own signature style of explosive experimentation.
And there were definitely some fascinating explosions on the show, but who will ever forget Buster the dummy who had to take part in all the hard tricks to represent us humans?
However, after many years of entertaining the world by testing random theories of physics and the human body, it’s time to say goodbye to some of their best props and memories. Some of the team’s most famous props used in the show are now up for auction with all funds raised going to The Grant Imahara STEAM Foundation.
Former co-host Adam Savage explained the rather mysterious and fascinating origins of their beloved crash test dummy “Buster”, while he was going through the inventory from MythBusters to put up for auction.
Savage talks about how the show obtained Buster, in which experiments Buster participated, what Buster taught the crew about the human body, what role Buster plays in the show history and what remains of Buster to this day.
“One of the most beloved MythBusters cast members is Buster, the crash test dummy, and he has a somewhat mysterious original story.”
In the video Savage points out some of Buster’s left over body parts. “I think these are some of the rarest pieces in MythBuster history.” He also added that each cast member took home a piece of Buster after the show to remind them of the good times.
Continuing his story, Savage elaborated on how the MythBuster team decided to get a crash dummy but discovered how expensive one can be, and how they then came across the Hybrid 2 crash dummy Buster, and what they had to do to get him.
