Mousetraps Used to Demonstrate the Importance of Social Distancing

This video drives home the importance of social distancing. It shows 500 mouse traps placed next to each other, and each one has a ping-pong ball on the trigger. 

When one ping-pong ball is dropped onto a trap, it sets off a wave of bouncing balls and snapping traps that are flying everywhere. 

Then they do a second version where the traps are placed further away from each other, and this time the ping-pong ball goes bouncing past without setting off a chain reaction.
