I Tried To Make The "Pringles Wheel" On Snapchat And Failed Spectacularly

Expectation vs reality.

Posted on

TV writer and producer Jane Espenson managed to make a make a ring out of Pringles with absolutely no glue.

I did it! I did it! I built a Pringles ringle! No glue, just physics.

People were very impressed.

And Espenson wasn't the only one who did it.

Amazing!!! RT @jenninat0r: @JaneEspenson right back at ya omg this is unbelievable

So I decided to try making a Pringles ring too, and I thought it would be really easy.
