Diet Coke and Mentos guys switch to Post-it notes

The famous duo Eepy Bird has released a new set of videos showcasing the artistry that can come from 280,000 of the sticky pieces of paper.

As reported by my colleague Greg Sandoval in July, the Eepy Bird guys--you know, the fellows who have gained worldwide fame by dropping Mentos into Diet Coke--have decided to move on from explosive sweets.

Instead, the pair have decided to work in the Post-it notes milieu for now, and as such, they've released a couple of new videos showcasing exactly how the little sticky pieces of paper can be transformed into what amounts to colorful Slinkys.

And frankly, I never knew that the utilitarian notepads could be so much fun.

The new videos have been released as part of a promotion in conjunction with the ABC Family network show, Samurai Girl.

What the connection between the two is, I have no idea. Suffice it to say that the Eepy Bird guys--Stephen Voltz and Fritz Grobe--who I can attest from personal experience are very nice, despite their fame, have used 280,000 of the little pieces of paper to take the Post-it notes community by storm.

And while this isn't quite as fun as bouncing hundreds of thousands of bouncy balls down San Francisco hills, it's still a kick.

And now? We wait for the inevitable imitators. You know, like, "Leave Post-it notes alone!"
