  • Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage made cameos as lab technicians. Specifically, they watch and take notes when Nick tests whether a stun gun can set a perp's shirt on fire after the perp has been maced. Subsequently, the two of them received many requests to put that premise to the test on MythBusters, and in a 2010 episode called Fireball Stun Gun, they did just that. Basing their analysis on the fire triangle, the two of them found that the myth was plausible because some pepper sprays use oil-based propellant, stun guns can create a big spark especially if they get caught in the target's clothing, and acrylic fabric is in itself flammable.
