We’ve seen some magical things happen in the doughnut world lately, including the invention of this intriguing (and artery clogging) doughnut-chicken sandwich. But magician Andy Clockwise’s Krispy Kreme face shield takes doughnut magic to a whole new level. Because the face shield is not only cheap and presumably effective—it’s also a great excuse to buy a dozen doughnuts.
Clockwise, a magician in England, recently posted the Krispy Kreme face shield to his YouTube channel. In the video, via Laughing Squid, Clockwise uses an empty box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and a pair of scissors. (For those unfamiliar with Krispy Kreme doughnuts, please check out these magical chocolate-filled beauties.)
In regards to the actual DIY project, making the face shield looks exceptionally simple. All one needs to do is cut off the top of a Krispy Kreme box, clip a few slips in the creases, and then measure the shield for head fit. Clockwise cuts the corners off the front of his shield too, although that’s obviously more for aesthetics than efficacy.

Speaking of efficacy, it’s hard to say for sure, but it seems like the contraption would work effectively as a face shield. Note, however, there is no evidence of this. Regardless, a big piece of plastic in front of one’s face must block aerosols, and would almost certainly pass
muster custard with Bill Nye.
On top of that, Clockwise’s shield still lets people see his full, expressive face, which seems like a big qualitative bonus. Unfortunately, eating doughnuts through the face shield, even for a magician, still seems impossible.
