"MythBusters" host Adam Savage already built one moaning Duck Army "duck bomb." Now he's enlisted more ducks, and a few flamingos, to kick it up a notch for the Ultimate Duck Army Bomb.

"When you mix these all together it sounds like the third level of Dante's Hell," Savage says in the latest episode of his Web series "Tested."

Duck Army, for the unacquainted, refers to a viral video of a guy pressing down on a bin of honking plastic rubber ducks. The video, posted at the end of August, has received more than 9.5 million views.

Savage made his own Duck Army from the same kind of same plastic toys back in September for "Tested."

His latest contraption, the Ultimate Duck Bomb, is made from 16 moaning dog toys called Squawkie Talkies. By getting his "ducks in a row," or more accurately by hanging the toys upside down together, Savage manages to find the best way to prolong the horrible sound that is meant to entice dogs but really just makes us all cringe.

It's hard not to giggle every time a weird sound sneaks out of the Squawkie Talkies whenever Savage tries to move the toys around. It's like they're agreeing with everything he says to his "Tested" co-host Will Smith.

Watch the video to see how you too can create the kind of sound bomb that will confuse your pets and make your neighbors pray for your hell-bound soul.
