  • (jazzy music)

  • - Welcome to our lab-beaut-ory.

  • - I'm Chrissy. - And I'm Cissy.

  • - Some people do crazy shit in the name of beauty,

  • but most of the time it's more fiction than fact.

  • - And we're here to find out what's real and what's bogus.

  • - Today, we're going to see if we

  • can outrun a T.rex, in heels.

  • (triumphant orchestral music)

  • (dinosaur growling)

  • Dude, I was watching Jurassic World last weekend.

  • I was holed up in my tiny-ass apartment, on my tiny-ass

  • little couch and I was eating my nacho cheese-flavored

  • tortilla chips watching this beautiful film.

  • And there's a part in it, you know the really cute girl,

  • Claire, the fashiony one.

  • - [Cissy] Oh my goodness, I love her style.

  • - She's so cute.

  • A fuckin' T. rex comes out through those fuckin' gates,

  • and she's like, oh shit dude I gotta run.

  • And then, instead of just running like a normal human,

  • she runs in three and a half inch stilettos,

  • patent leather, nude heels.

  • Not even round-toe, it's like a slight point.

  • Do you think that shit's real?

  • - It's not that bad girl, get you.

  • You get your work done and you get your heels done.

  • - I don't know, I'm still shook by this,

  • and I think that we should go to a paleontologist

  • and figure it out and see if it's real or not.

  • - I wanna figure this out, too.

  • - Okay, take that pallet it's cute.

  • (electric rap music)

  • All right, Cissy, so we got our dope-ass Jurassic Park Jeep,

  • our dope-ass clipboard, we are on our way

  • to The Natural History Museum

  • so we can get some fucking answers.

  • My hypothesis is that this ain't happening, we dead.

  • Why wouldn't you take that shit off?

  • - She probably started her day not

  • realizing that everything was gonna hit the fan.

  • Plus, there's broken glass everywhere.

  • Without heels she would've died.

  • - Died?

  • I think we're giving that dude a lot of credit.

  • He is just a big-ass lizard with tiny arms.

  • Aren't like runners all about the arms or something?

  • I don't know, I never run.

  • You physically can't carry that much weight that quickly.

  • See, hippos, those things aren't that fast,

  • or maybe hippos are fast, I don't fucking know.

  • Let's go look at some dinos, Let's look at some bones.

  • (singing Jurassic Park theme song off-key)

  • Hi! - Hello.

  • - Who are you? - I'm Nate Smith,

  • I'm associate curator here in the Dinosaur Institute at

  • The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

  • - So tell me more about the T. rex, what's his deal,

  • why is its head so big, why is its arms so small?

  • - [Nate] T. rex lived around 66 million years ago.

  • They're growing throughout their life, and like us,

  • they had a kind of teenage years where they're

  • growing much more rapidly. - Teenz.

  • - Most of us were pretty awkward at 17,

  • but at 7,000 pounds it would've been even worse.

  • Some dinosaurs might've lived in social groups

  • and been friendly with each other,

  • but certainly there were also predator/prey interactions.

  • - This is big news for me.

  • I didn't know there was like dino drama.

  • How fast does a T. rex run?

  • - Well this has been a question that's

  • garnered a lot of debate in the paleontological community.

  • T. rex could probably run between 11 and 24 miles per hour.

  • Evidence would suggest that he's probably not a marathoner.

  • - That's how I run, just for like five seconds, then I stop.

  • Could you recreate what a run would look like from a T. rex?

  • - We can, scientists can actually model that type of motion.

  • - Can you do it? - Can I do it?

  • - Maybe just a little.

  • - You'd have your arms up here.

  • I can't actually bend my legs in that fashion.

  • - Oh okay, okay (bleeping)

  • So, have you ever worn heels? - I look great in heels.

  • - Do you think I could outrun one?

  • - Absolutely not. - Oh.

  • - The speeds that we have from people like Ussain Bolt

  • are faster than the upper boundaries

  • of what's been estimated for T. rex,

  • so they would no problem getting away.

  • - Do you think I, or anyone should try this experiment?

  • - I think you might wanna consult

  • with your podiatrist first.

  • - Hey, Sam, I just have a little quickie question.

  • Would you advise running in three and half inch heels

  • on a treadmill from a T. rex?

  • - So you wouldn't recommend it?

  • - Okay, love you, bye.

  • - Okay, let's get this test started.

  • Treadmill that replicates running

  • through the jungle: check.

  • Nude, patent leather heels that are precisely

  • three and half inches: check.

  • Person that doesn't wanna get eaten: check.

  • Big-ass T. rex:

  • check.

  • (ominous music)

  • This treadmill gets up to 12 miles per hour, which means,

  • Chrissy, if you're able to hit a consistent 11 miles per

  • hour or above, you have outrun a T. rex in heels.

  • How do you feel?

  • - I'm very stressed.

  • I'm sweating and haven't done anything yet.

  • Also, what's my safe word?

  • - Nate. - It's Nate.

  • - Let's get started? - Yeah, let's do this.

  • - Treadmill activated. (treadmill beeps)

  • This is casual, he hasn't even come out of the gate yet.

  • - Just going about my day at work, I'm Claire.

  • Oh my god, T. rex, hey girl.

  • - There's panic in Jurassic World, all you hear

  • is people screaming. (synthesized screaming)

  • Look around.

  • Is there something coming? - Is there a T. rex around?

  • - He's coming.

  • You're at five, you're at six,

  • you're at six, you're at seven.

  • It's coming, Chrissy!

  • (screaming)

  • - Nate.

  • That sucked.

  • Well, it's clear that I absolutely failed.

  • So let's bring in someone who is

  • a wee bit more athletic than I am.

  • Welcome, Krishna Curry, an elite track athlete.

  • - Hey, you guys.

  • - Hi! (applauding)

  • - Thank for having me.

  • - Oh my god, thanks for coming.

  • Do you think that you could outrun a T. rex?

  • - Yes.

  • - In those heels? - For sure.

  • - Let's do this, because if you can't do it

  • no one fucking can.

  • - Treadmill activated.

  • This is like a chill Jurassic World walk.

  • You're like hanging out in the park.

  • It's a good-ass day.

  • Two. - Feel the two?

  • - I feel the two.

  • - Uh-oh, people are screaming.

  • Out of the cage!

  • We're at eight, he's coming for you!

  • We're at nine, guys, we're at nine!

  • She's at eleven!

  • She's outrunning the dinosaur!

  • Twelve, twelve, twelve, twelve!

  • He's in the dust.

  • Are you good?

  • (hip-hop music)

  • Seriously?

  • - I think I can go a little bit faster.

  • - What?

  • - If wasn't on a treadmill, I could go faster.

  • - I'm shook.

  • - Why did it look so easy when she did it?

  • - Since Krishna killed it,

  • we're gonna add in some extra elements.

  • All right, let's do it.

  • (treadmill beeping)

  • - Eleven.

  • And she's at twelve!

  • The unit's coming.

  • You're going in the jungle!

  • - Oh, what's that, it's raining?

  • - Oh, it's pouring!

  • She's unfazed, unfazed!

  • We made it again, guys, we made it!

  • (cheering)

  • - Holy shit! - She did it!

  • - That was insane.

  • - Heels, human, T. rex, gone.

  • - Our final, final conclusion is that yes,

  • a human can outrun a T. rex in three and a half inch heels,

  • under the circumstances that they are athletic, unlike me.

  • So if Claire was a good runner,

  • she absolutely could have outrun a T. rex.

  • Yeah?

  • - Yeah. - Yeah.

  • - Do you guys think something's bogus

  • that you want us to figure out for you?

  • Leave it in the comments below and we'll

  • try to figure it out because we're scientists kind of.

  • - Back to lab, guys. - Bye.

  • (singing Jurassic World theme song offkey)

  • This is not right.

  • (laughing)

  • - [Cissy] That was my dinosaur.
