The world’s craziest viral videos have arrived in Asia with the premiere of pop-science program, You Have Been Warned Asia (YHWBA), on Discovery Channel.
Fronted by science enthusiasts, Ramon Bautista, aka “Internet Action Star,” writer-director RA Rivera, actor and comedic performer Jun Sabayton, author and social commentator Lourd De Veyra and journalist Angel Rivero, YHBWA deconstructs the science behind these experiments and tells us exactly why it shouldn’t be tried at home because you have been warned.
“More than our funny antics, we are able to provide relevant information that we believe is worth sharing to our viewers. We aim to roll public safety and entertainment into one with the facts and concepts we share to the audience. Each video is broken down to showcase that there is logic and science behind every clip,” Bautista shared.
Every episode is a themed countdown of the world’s top 13 viral videos. The panel goes through the countdown, showing mind-blowing clips, describing the science behind them, and adding witty commentary with their own blend of humor. Viewers can expect to laugh, learn, and cringe at the incredible and reckless things the human mind and spirit are capable of.
