Watch the 'Mythbusters' duo trade places using masks so realistic they're scary

March 29, 2011 |  6:25 pm

Adamjamie Discovery Channel's "Mythbusters" returns with original episodes next week, and if the new video released Tuesday is any indication, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman have some excellent new tricks in store. 

In "Mission Impossible Mask," the pair test whether it's possible to disguise oneself so thoroughly that everyone is fooled -- even a person's dog. The notion here is for the longtime partners (and frequent comic foils) to see if they can trade places long enough to dupe those around them.

In the first clip, Adam and Jamie try out super-lifelike masks created by a special-effects whiz. In the second, Adam takes acting lessons to get pointers on portraying the ever-excitable and loquacious Jamie.
