The Nat Geo Contraption…Entertain Your Brain

What happens when you combine nine globes, three tires, one billiard ball, one VW Beetle, a set of bowling pins and a variety of everyday objects?

You get a cool way to promote Nat Geo International’s “Entertain Your Brain” line of science-minded shows (Brain Games, Science of Stupid and Street Genius) that are returning to TV in 2015.

Inspired by Rube Goldberg (whose awesome contraptions turn me on…FYI) the spot was filmed outside Mexico City at the Otomi Ceremonial Center, a center that promotes and preserves the culture of the indigenous Otomi people. The Entertain Your Brain stunt plays upon viewers’ fascination with the incredible workings of science and the human mind, from the origins of the Otomi tribe to present day. It also underscores National Geographic Channels International’s commitment to delivering engaging and thought-provoking programming to audiences.

So watch the advert after the break…why is all the good stuff made for those who live outside the U.S.?
