Scottish actor Ewan McGregor decided to give us a lesson in science- but it might not be accurate lesson.

But, according to many comments, the local man was tricking the celebrity. According to commenter OrgyMeyer "Apparently this guy was tricking them by flicking the edge of the funnel before putting in the toothpick to make it spin the desired direction. And being very careful to evenly place the funnel when standing on the equator." So, what do you think? Is this real, or fake?  See the hosts' reaction. View Now
