The Motherboard TV 'Higgs Boson' clip takes viewers around Brooklyn, where the creators interviewed bystanders about their knowledge of the 'God Particle.'
Purposely meant to highlight the cluelessness of the interviewees, this is a cringe-worthy video to watch, especially with the immense media coverage since the breakthrough. More than just misunderstanding the complex ideas behind the particle, those interviewed have seemingly never heard of the Higgs Boson at all. Granted, the interview does not make it clear whether this was conducted before or after the huge and nearly inescapable media coverage.
Bound to humiliate many and set off a few tempers on the web, this is a clever idea by Motherboard TV highlighting some embarrassing Brooklyn-based ignorance.
