Anyone who has seen Discovery Channelâ€™s Smash Lab show can probably agree on one thing: It sucks!
Despite being an attempt by Discovery Channel to duplicate the success of their very popular MythBusters show, the combination of terrible projects, awful hosts, and lackluster to simply non-existent science content means itâ€™s one of the worst shows on television.
For most, Smash Labâ€™s suckiness simply equates to an hour of their day when they canâ€™t watch the Discovery Channel (or two hours if for some god forsaken reason they decide to do re-runs) but for two guys named Eric, it means much more.
Thatâ€™s because the two Erics run a design studio out of Canada called smashLAB, and now, whenever anyone Googles the name of their company, the results are filled with website after website decrying that â€œSmash Lab sucks!â€
To combat this problem, they decided to not go after Discovery Channel for taking their name, but instead to create a website where they could openly request that Discovery Channel make Smash Lab suck a little less so that positive reviews can start to replace the negative ones:
It might not be enough to save the show, but hopefully their rather funny plea will get the two Erics enough business to survive Smash Lab’s downfall.
