It's a match made in heaven ... if heaven was a chemistry lab. The day after Breaking Bad premieres the second half of its final season, MythBusters Jamie, Adam, Kari, Tori, and Grant will tackle some of the show's "crystal myths" with the help of creator Vince Gilligan and Jesse Pinkman himself, Mr. Aaron Paul. Check out a few videos from the special, which airs Monday, August 12 at 10 p.m. on the Discovery Channel.

The Intro

Gilligan and Paul visit the MythBusters' blueprint room and lay out the myths they want the team tackle. "Explosives and acid," Jamie says. "Let's party."

Mercury Fulminate

Kari, Grant, and Tory test just how explosive Mercury Fulminate is.


Looks like they had fun filming!
