Alton Brown Made A Handwashing Video And People Are Split Over The Dark Ending
Well, *that* took a turn.
By now, you already know that one of the most important things you can do during ~These Times~ is wash your hands. 👏
Lots of people have shared ways to help us remember and do that effectively.
Alton Brown is one of the latest to chime in with a tutorial on how to properly wash your hands — and leave it to him to get technical.
He starts off with some important background — and talks about why hand sanitizer (over actual washing) just doesn't cut it.
Then, the main event: the Handwashing How-To.
As with all things Alton — it's ~involved.~ (But informative!)
Alton explains that his go-to technique is multi-step. First part? Get your hands wet.
Then, he instructs: Lather up your palms for five seconds...
Then five seconds of the back-and-forth hook... 🤝
And five more of the interlaced clasp...
Then rinse for five seconds, dry, and you're done.
TBH, it's a pretty great and useful breakdown! But in what won't surprise anyone who's ever watched a Good Eats ep, Alton keeps things going.
Spoilers ahead, friends.
He goes from drying his hands — to an overhead cleaver shot...
Fair to say that some viewers weren't expecting the twist ending.
And that maybe Alton wasn't expecting THEM to not expect it.
Some weren't into it:
While others saw no issue:
Still, the next day, Alton uploaded an uncut version (if you will) — one that ditches the gory ending and sticks to its clean PSA roots.
