It’s a well-documented fact at this point that plenty of Americans don’t want to wear masks to protect themselves and others from COVID-19. But maybe they’d change their tune if it was possible to fire a “gun” that shoots a mask on to someone’s face?

That’s the idea YouTuber Allen Pan came up with and worked to invent. He prefers to think of it as a “mask launcher,” and as you’ll see in the above video it’s definitely still a work-in-progress. But it’s at least a fun idea, using a CO2 cartridge and weights attached to each of the mask strings to get it secured.

Is it a perfect invention? Nah. But do you get to see it in action in this delightful video, in which Pan takes his creation to the conservative California town of Huntington Beach? Hell yeah.
