Remember the Lexus commercial I railed about a couple years back? The one where they drop a car from 4000 feet while another car on the ground moving at top speed tried to out run it? The one that didn't seem right and I tried (miserably) to prove it wouldn't work that way? Well, fortunately for me, Mythbusters is the greatest show on TV, and proved this past week on their Demolition Derby super-episode that this commercial is impossible. The dropped car fell more-or-less wheels down most of the way (highest possible drag) and still hit the ground a full 2 seconds before the car on the ground reached the same point. Simulations are no match for real-world experimentation and the Discovery Channel just made Lexus look like chumps.
