In 2006, Fritz Grobe, a juggler, and Stephen Voltz, a lawyer, uploaded a video to their website, EepyBird.com. In it, they dropped Mentos into 101 bottles of Diet Coke to create a complex spray performance meant to mimic the Bellagio fountain in Las Vegas. Two days later the David Letterman show called and their unlikely career began. The Buckfield men travel the world to perform their act, including their latest experiment involving sticky notes. They found a way to capitalize on their Internet fame, unlike Zoe Zanidakis, a female lobsterman from Monhegan Island who has been unable to parlay her stint on "Survivor" into an acting career, or Jeremiah McDonald of Portland, a YouTube celebrity who is trying to launch a film career.
