Why Would You Eat That? - Buzz Buttons

YouTube Description: Imagine a mouthful of pop rocks plus Novocaine plus dandelions and you'll have an idea of what buzz buttons are like! Big in Brazil, the buzz buttons inspired us to call on our favorite music-making, stop-motion animating YouTuber, MysteryGuitarMan!! Watch Joe Penna feed the office the jambu flowers to the beat of his own drum.

Buzz buttons aka Szechuan buttons aka jambu aka paracress is an herb that originates in South America that is used for both flavoring in foods like stews, curries, rice dishes and even fancy cocktails. Jambu is also used as an herbal remedy for toothaches and indigestion. Like Mother Nature's edible cocaine, the buttons "buzz" because they literally make your mouth numb and give your taste buds a shake, rattle and roll. Which brings us to MysteryGuitarMan! He ducks inside the Why Would You Eat That edit bay to make some beats with super random items that Michael Truly and the gang keep in there for some reason... like why do they still have a GIANT bag of Death Wish Coffee?! Did they need that much for the Challenge?!
