Episode Summary
Hang on, because on this episode of Mythbusters the team have a killer cocktail of lethal littering and high-flying action movie action.

In Cup vs. Car Adam and Jamie tackle a tall tale of trash and crash. Can a Styrofoam cup of soda, thrown from a car at highway speeds, penetrate the windshield of an oncoming car and seriously injure the unfortunate driver? It sounds far fetched but Adam and Jamie, our very own yodas of soda start by firing cups out of a cannon, and it's clear the forces at play are fearsome. Then out on location, in what can only be described as lethal litter jousting, our dynamic duo discover exactly how much damage a drink can do.

And to wrap it up Jamie builds a shoulder mounted soda can cannon. Naturally.
