  • (upbeat music)
  • (rain pouring)
  • - [Narrator] Any outdoor explorer will tell you,
  • if you don't come prepared, you might just get burned.
  • (thundering) (rain pouring)
  • Make sure you don't get hosed (upbeat music)
  • and carry storm-proof matches
  • on your next adventure.
  • A set of fire starters
  • that are truly windproof and waterproof.
  • Like any match, strike them to light.
  • But unlike ordinary matches,
  • they're practically impossible to blow out
  • in the strongest winds or when it's pouring down rain.
  • These amazing matches will remain lit
  • even after you've submerged them in water.
  • You can even bury them in dirt,
  • and they'll remain lit for a full 15 seconds.
  • Of course they're great for surviving in the wild,
  • but they're a lifesaver
  • even if you just want to light up the grill
  • when the wind's not cooperating.
  • Stay high and dry in the windiest and wettest conditions
  • with stormproof matches.
  • Buy the fire starters and hundreds more gifts
  • at vat19.com.
  • - These stormproof matches are almost unbelievable,
  • so stick around to see even more unbelievable upgrades.
  • (crickets chirping)
  • (upbeat music)
  • - [Announcer] Prepare to have your mind blown
  • by the crazy fun magnetic thinking putty.
  • Bend it, stretch it (rock music)
  • and bounce it
  • just like regular silly putty.
  • But set it next to a magnet,
  • and thinking putty comes alive.
  • Its attractive nature
  • comes from millions of magnetic particles
  • infused in the putty.
  • Using the included neodymium iron boron magnet,
  • (laser blasting)
  • meaning super strong,
  • you can charge the particles in the putty,
  • then magnetically pick up objects
  • like paperclips, tacks and staples.
  • This time lapse shot shows the putty slowly engulfing
  • the magnet over the course of half an hour.
  • You may have doubts,
  • but we promise it's not a living organism.
  • Thinking putty takes on different physical properties
  • depending on how fast you interact with it.
  • Apply a slow force,
  • and it stretches and feels rubbery.
  • With a quick force,
  • the putty cleanly breaks like foam,
  • and with an instant impact
  • well, let's just say you might need a metal detector
  • to find all the pieces.
  • Let's see that one more time.
  • Okay, just one more time.
