  1. I don’t know about this particular product, but there was a similar one that caused a lot of problems. As you noted, kids would eat those beads. The problem was the adhesive compound the beads used transformed into methamphetamine in the stomach. Yeah…that one was pulled.

    • I don’t think it was meth, I read that they turned into GHB in the stomach, a few kids basically roofied themselves.

      • So, what you’re saying is…
        Beados are roofying kids?

        • I don’t know if it was Beados itself or another similar brand of self adhering pixel beads, but I did find them on a google search for discontinued/recalled toys for that reason. It was the same list that included metal spiked lawn darts, exploding clackers, and a science kit that had actual radioactive material in it. If it was Beados then they must have changed the formula because they ended up back on the shelves eventually.

    “See if my snake stiffens up.” I see what you did there.

    Bit of a disappointment though, if you left it ten minutes longer than recommended and it still didn’t work properly then there must be a flaw in the design. I don’t see how you could have sprayed it with water incorrectly.

  3. I don’t get the joke of this video. Is it a Beatles joke? Also, it sucks that this didn’t work. D:

    • The joke is that “Beado” kind of sounds like “Pedo”, as in pedophile, although here in the U.S. the word is pronounced “pehd-o-file” with the short sound of the ‘e’. I’m guessing this is a UK thing.

  4. It’s pronounced PEHD-uh-file over here you unwashed plebeian.

  5. Few things i noticed may have been the problem, were the balls tightly squeezed together? Maybe wait a little longer as you may have sprayed a little to much water (minimum was 20 mins)

    Also, those templates look like they sit under the bead holder thing to make it easy for you to follow.

    Give it another whirl mike, u know u wanna 😉

  6. Do these ones turn into meth with water or in the stomach? Inquiring minds want to know!

  7. I thought he couldn’t do worst than months worth of ”dumb and/or dump diet(s)” videos… I was apparently terribly wrong.

    Here’s a video, where his main ”gag”… is pedophilia jokes and references. Really. -_-
    Next, what is he going to do ? Yell ‘RAPE’ like a demented youtuber ?
