The Plus production team put me through a lot this year. They got me over my fear of rollercoasters. So for the season finale: I took them to a bobsleigh track. Merry Christmas, everyone.

And that's our show! The Plus channel is taking a break now: thank you so much to all the production team, to everyone at Whistler, and to you for watching. Merry Christmas!
I wish you guys good luck and hope to see more of you when you come back! Have a good break!
Hopefully not a terribly long break! I absolutely love this channel!
Love the channel so many good videos i love the board games with tomska and meeting beardyman the most
Merry Christmas, enjoy your break
I love you Tom
I know the original plan was just to run this channel for a while and see what happened, but I genuinely hope that this becomes a long term fixture.
well... they seem to be the ones also kinda running tom's other channel... and the Deadline is coming... so maybe...
@PrograError deadline? please elaborate!
@PrograError Deadline? :o
@ali akeel Main Channel is moving to irregular uploads
@psyched he has a video out on this - he won’t be giving out regular uploads every Monday - it’s kinda stressful to do what he has done
Tom Scott has overcome all his fears Now it's time for his production team to understand the meaning of terror
Tom Scott is going mad with power.
"I am here at the newest circle of hell and my crew has arrived a bit earlier"
What is terror?
The bobsledder is a really good explainer. Also notice that he says bobsled while Tom says bobsleigh.
finally, the collaboration we've been waiting for: Tom Scott plus Tom Scott Plus！
tom scott plus squared???
@Mercurial Interference Tom Scott++
@BrutalSwede The next programming language
@Fejfo that's what the CS-tv algorithm is programmed in
@BrutalSwede And then Tom Scott#
Philippe is a cool guy "I wouldn't call it less safe, I call it the more fun one" If you crash "You'll have a good story for tonight"
The best experiences are the ones with that little element of danger!!
If I were to go down an extremely dangerous extreme sports track, he's exactly the person I would want on my side.
"Do accidents happen often?" *long pause* -"No"
@Adrian Bik you forgot the super assuring ehhhhhhhhhhh
This looks like fun. Philippe Melun: "The average speed is 135 km/hour, and it reaches up to 155 km/hour." This no longer looks like fun.
Like a waterslide only 4x faster.
For me, that made it sound more fun lmao
It does if you're used to Autobahn speeds ;-)
@Ralf Baechle Autobahn speeds, but with the curve radius of a left turn at an intersection...
Honestly once they mentioned the speed it started to look like *more* fun to me.
Can we appreciate for a minute the incredible work that the production team does??
Stand up for the production team!
You can appreciate whatever you wanna appreciate.
I don't know, can we?
There's nothing like an overused catch phrase on Christmas morning..
the dynamic tom has with his team is actually nice its always good seeing tom interact with other people it feels humanising. This channel feelsl like a mix between qi and top gear
Tom is just gradually becoming the BBC at it's peak.
@Erin2718 it's a shame the BBC isn't the BBC at its peak.
@Erin2718soon he is going to turn into doctor who 😂
Yes it does, you're right 👍
@Erin2718 but less transphobic, thankfully
I recognised an Aussie twang in Chris' speech and Googled him. He was born in Darwin, of all places, and originally competed in the bobsleigh for Australia. Having read his bio, I can see why he was so open about the fact that you can end up on your head: "He was involved in a catastrophic crash in January 2012 during the 2011-12 Bobsleigh World Cup in Altenberg, Germany which put him in hospital for eight days. After having his skin shredded and a piece of wood the size of a kitchen knife embedded in his back, Spring considered retiring but later returned to the track in April 2012."
Not surprisingly, most Australian ski (or bobsled) bums come from states where it snows a lot. So it's strange to see one from a place where it never snows.
Wow. If I were Tom's crew doing the research for that, I would've flaked out right after reading that.
I clocked it too and had to look him up!
I thought I was making up that slight accent, since I’m not even Australian.
Yep, noticed it as well
Jesus, the go-pro footage is incredible. I had no idea how fast it looked like from that perspective
well... the roof is a measurement of sorts... it's hella quick... it's blur...
it legitimately made me motion ill. what a great perspective!
Imagine if it were VR footage.
Look like its speed up the footage ^^
afx in the open, good to see
Tom, I think that it is not only awesome that you share your midlife crisis with the rest of the world by doing all these crazy things, but also that you let your team enjoy it with you to its fullest extent. The human touch of involving them in some of these videos really lifts them up to another level given how 'personal' these experiences tend to be for you.
in a way it is also just sweet sweet payback. the team haze given Tom some very odd things to do this year. now they can experience it the fullest.
"Tom Scott's Midlife Crisis" might have been a better title for the series.
TOM SCOTS MIDLIFE CRISIS 🤣
@sirBrouwer "the team haze given" -- Was that an intentional typo? It calls to mind "hazing" :)
The title sounds so funny yet so ominous at the same time... Tom, your videos are one of the only ones that have remained really good quality. Thanks for making great content!
The thing that makes it sound so ominous to me is the period at the end
Hear HEAR! Thank you, Tom, I've been watching since the eager beginnings! You have one of the best channels on the CS-tv Sir!
They should be scared, it was so fast that an athlete died on it in 2010
@teknokracy Starting further down not only skips the hardest part of the track, it also makes them go a bit slower at any given point since they’ve had less time to accelerate.
this is just an excuse for Tom's production team to have a holiday in canada and writing it off as business expenses
found the IRS agent...
@PrograError i am not, **wink**
You totally have found them out.
Tom and his team: so is this safe or dangerous? Staff: yes.
Haha - that driver is either an Aussie that’s been in Canada a long time or a Canadian that’s been around Aussies in Whistler a long time 😂
His name is Christopher Spring, Australian-Canadian born in Aus but is on the Canadian team. Don't think you could be more bang on mate
Chris Spring is an Australian and so is Heath Spence - Both work in Canada, both have competed in IBSF competitions... but Chris did it for Canada and Heath for Australia
@Dan Arnets Makes sense! TY for the information
@Tera I wondered why I could hear him dip into Aussie!
We were in Whistler in 2011. There was a common saying "Whistler is the highest Australian mountain." It seemed that everyone working around town had aussie accents! It seems to be a must-do stop on the gap year travel list.
congratulations on the medical reason, and merry christmass to you all
"Congratulations on the medical reason" is the best possible way to phrase that.
4:04 love that the Georgian flag is still there 12 years later ❤ Rest in Peace Nodar Kumaritashvili
That was a sad day 😞
what happened? Olympic death?
@PrograError fatal training crash on the opening day of the Olympics 2010
@PrograError Crashed and hit one of the blue pillars near the end of the track during Luge run. Still remember that video.
A horrible day, Whistler does not forget, RIP.
Feel the Rhythm. Feel the rhyme. Get on up. It bobsled time! Cool runnings!!!
Rhyme, not ride.
Fun fact: the programmed hang time on The Griffin, a vertical drop coaster at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, is just long enough to be perfectly timed for this chant
MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY
I rented that VHS so many times as a kid! :D
Some people say you know we cant believe - Tom Scott he has a bobsled team
Tom needs to face the fact that he's no longer a presenter, he's a personality. This kind of content is something plenty of people are interested in!
Confirming once again that this channel just exists for Tom to leave his comfort zone. More power to him for that.
Chris Joel is gonna be jealous. "If you're doing it right there should be a chance of death. I say that about everything. I say that about walking to the shops"
Chris Joel is such an enigma that he may as well be an Olympic-level bobsledder with no one knowing.
Good job by the editors... that slow-mo montage made everyone look like total badasses!
Bobsledding (on that track anyway) is the scariest/most intense thing I've ever done. 300kph on a bike, bungie jumping, skydiving, all were easier than a touristy bobsled run to me.
I haven't done any bungie jumping or skydiving, but i can confirm that bobsledding is brutal, even the touristy bobsled taxi version. Proper race bobsled run must be absolutely insane.
How is 300kph on a bike wasn't scary???
@vitali it's still scary, but bobsledding is next level
300km/h on a bike requires an explanation.
@Boarbot 78 sounds like those crazy people that go straight down a mountain with there mountain bike. And with straight I mean a near wall.
The faces of the crew during the briefing are 100% "we gonna die, omg"
I have to say that the "putting on helmets" sequence was a lot cooler when the camera crew was behind the cameras! (Thanks all for a lovely series, it's been a lot of fun to watch!) Would love to see more from this channel next year!
you can imagine why
Tom, I'm glad you didn't do this six years ago, because GOD DAMN the footage from this was gorgeous. +1 for all those involved in capture and color grading, and for the rest of the team for being willing to put up with this!
Between this and the taxi driver video, your production team is incredible. They've really elevated these last two to be even better than they would've been.
That looked FAST. The alarming thing is that in the footage you can see the pushers aren't giving it half of what they do for competition.
The Georgian Flag hanging outside during the briefing is telling of just how difficult this track is.
Yes, a little bit of irony when it comes to giving the safety briefing with that background (both figuratively and literally).
My only little disappointment is that, just for funsies, the sled team didn't give them the full "Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, get on up, it's bobsled time!" (If you know, you know)
Looks to me like the same track used in the film!
2 things: 1- How did any of you not do the chant from cool runnings? 2-If anything (heaven forbid) happens to Tom, the last thing that said on this show is going to be "that's nuts"... What a fantastic end, and I love that you involved your crew in this. Tom Scott, thank you for everything you and your various teams have done for the internet this year and in years past.
The chant is most likely copyrighted, so they may not be able to show it in the final video if they did do it.
I'm impressed that the editing team cut all the footage perfectly to have the whole trip down around 40 seconds, thats efforts and realism not many would notice, Great job guys and gals !
Hope the team is ready for ski jumping next year.
I've been waiting for this video! You guys were staying at the same hotel we were when we visited Whistler for a mini-vacation, and we saw you guys filming when we stopped by the sliding centre to check it out. Thanks for unintentionally making our vacation memorable with a CS-tv celebrity sighting 😂
I love how Tom travels the world to see interesting things, and while doing that he has visited my home of BC numerus times in these videos. It tells me I picked the right place to live.
Love the growth that we have been able to watch. From terrified Tom before the coasters, to him saying he should have done this six years ago as they are getting ready shows how much ccj he has grown. Movies should review this channel to study how to do natural character growth 👍
Seeing the team getting involved is a real cool concept, it shows that people are really into this project and not just "working". I have to admit I watched it mainly because I was curious about everyone working behind the scenes than the actual thing that happened.
What an awesome team of people Tom has and what a lucky lot they are to have Tom as a boss.
This channel has been absolutely fantastic - have a great break, and I look forward to seeing you back in 2023!
Imagine hearing "it's very easy to crash" and "it's all about the feeling" before somebody pushes you into an irreversible situation.
The production quality of this video is incredible! Awesome recording and editing!
I wonder if the crew knew a bit of the history of their driver , Chris Spring , and his traumatic bobsled accident of January 2012 during a practice run in Germany. Bobsled hit the roof and even took out part of it. Didn't know if he'd be able to work up the nerve to pilot a sled again, be responsible for the crew, but he did just weeks later and he said he feels the accident made him a better driver.
Looks like your production team had an amazing day!
WHY ISNT ANYONE TALKING ABOUT THE COLOURED SUBTITLES
@houari bouhadjeb everyone got used to them, this channel has been using it for a while already
Ive loved watching this series and seeing Tom slowly but surely embrace his inner adrenaline junky
I know you're taking a break now, but if this ever continues into the future, I would absolutely love to see you try fencing. From all of your other videos, you have the exact attitude of every fencer on my team when they concede a point: "Gah! That's what I did wrong!", and then continuing despite bodily harm and pain with just pure determination
Awesome gift to give your crew. I was surprised by the size of the crew. I figured that it was you and two or three others. Keep putting this type of quality production.
Love to see you treat your employees well; taking them for a ride.
What a heck of a holiday gift for the team there Tom! It looks like everyone had the experience of a lifetime. Very glad to see you didn’t blackout. These are the times you’ll talk about 30 years from now when a little in the family is watching the winter games and goes “ohhhh! That’s so cool!” And every one of ya can now say, “ya know! I did that once!” And suddenly be an even greater superhero in their eyes. So freaking cool!
When he mentioned they were going to be pulling 5 to 6 Gs I was worried we were going to get Part 2 of Tom Scott updating on a centrifuge 😂😂😂
That's why he wasn't in the back!
4-5 wasn't it?
3-4 _g,_ which is still quite a lot to someone who passed out at 3.6 _g_ before.
His acceleration tolerance has clearly improved quite a bit.
Between a stunt plane and wrestling, he's gotten a few Gs thrown at him.
Scott, "How do you learn to control a bobsleigh? Driver, 🎶"I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes I feel in my butt, and the numbing of my nose It's written on you faces, let the terror show So if you really want to survive, just never let go"🎶
OK, for that you win teh internetz today.
Tom Scott: The Musical
"I should have done this six years ago." gods. I feel like tom has had the world opened and regrets his fears so truly. It's so odd ot watch but so glad he's gotten to such a comfortable place. Had he never faced up to his fears he'd still never know that it made him happy
As a Canadian, I learned more about my country from your videos than in school! Thanks Tom and the production team - have a happy Christmas!
I really wanna do this :D This seems like SO much fun. Could you post a short with only the POV of the sled going down?? That would be awesome
Hahaha, Phillipe was great!! "There is nothing we can do about it." and "Uhh...... no" had me cracking up!
Nice to finally meet all the folks bringing us so many cool videos. Thank you all! Wish you a merry Christmas and a wonderful new year 🙏
So Tom, it's immediately obvious that your camera team is in the sled at the end 🤣
I think Tom’s favorite phrase is “Oh Wow”
"So it is the less safe one?" "I like to call it the more fun one!" I almost died laughing
I would have cried if one of the camera team got off and then said "Meh! I've had better!" even if it was just a joke.
Happy holiday season, again I cannot get over how much I enjoy these closed captions. Serious serious kudos to the team, I hope you stick around and I get to see your feature laden captions on projects for other content creators! 🥰
UnFun fact: Going down a blobsled track ONCE is enough to cause permeant brain damage. It's not just the big crashes that lead to "sled head" but also micro-concussions from the number and intensity of small jolts that happen on a sled run.
@richcran7975 Sadly, there's only so much padding can do. The only realistic way you can stop these long-term issues with head injuries over time is to just not do those sports in the first place. Plus it isn't just the obvious ones like pro wrestling (where you're literally trained to take bumps on your back as tom showed) or american football, but auto racing, bobsleigh like you see in this video, association football, rallying, BMX, even submission-focused martial arts like BJJ still show athletes who get cte later in their lives. The more we research these long-term mental health conditions the more we're realizing, depressingly, that many of the seemingly innocent sports that exist all lead people down these awful conditions later in life.
I love how from about 11:47 onwards for a little while, if you listen closely to the sound it sounds like something's powering up (presumably because they're picking up speed). Also *kinda* sounds like a rocket launch when listening with headphones and the volume up (could just be my audio enhancer, though). Really awesome stuff!
Its the sound made by moving air, like when you blow on the edge of a bottle hole..... maybe
I love how Tom overcomes his fears it’s really inspiring
And that's a bucket list item now. Great that you took the whole team Tom when you could have done it with just a camera person.
Tom Scott Plus’ season 1’s second special! Thank you very much for this Christmas treat! The season finale was one of my favourites!
Cambria, you're reaction is my favorite! It's exactly what I would be acting like in your place. Thrilled with a slight adrenaline overload 😂❤
The only thing I want more after this is a full length POV video going down that track. Yes please, TYVM.
Hey, can yall make more videos with the whole team?
Cutest part was when the producer called Tom 'mate'. Really shows the relationship Tom has with his crew, and why his videos are so good.
I love that Tom is trying out and experiencing so many of the things I've always wanted to do but sadly can't due to illnesses and disability. Thanks Tom for having this channel be your "I'm curious about trying/checking out..." channel as it seem to be the source of a great sense of joy for you but also because it somehow makes me feel better in times I'm bummed that I'll never have a chance to full fill a particular dream of mine. Happy you're living the life you wish to have.
Ah, I wish I had seen this a couple of weeks earlier. This would've been the perfect present to wish for. Looks like SO much fun!
You have similar experiences available in all of the ¿dozen? professional ice tubes around the World There is one in every recent Olympic venue (Whistler, Sochi, Pyeongchang and Yanqing), one in many older Olympic venues (Salt Lake City, Nagano, La Plagne, Lake Placid and Calgary), 2 originally meant to train commies (Altenberg and Sigulda), 3 more in Germany out of pure obsession (Winterberg, Oberhof and Konigssee) and the granddad of them all in Sankt Moritz, which is the only one that isn't made of concrete and way too many refrigeration tubes
@Dan Arnets The Königssee one would probably be the easiest for me to reach, but the track was destroyed in a landslide earlier this year, which is a shame. Innsbruck could work as well though.
So happy to see the whole crew having fun!
To everyone that works behind the scenes and Tom himself, Merry Christmas!
Thanks for doing another episode in my back yard. Hopefully you guys were able to get out before the snow storm rolled in. Thanks you for keeping up with the amazing content
I totally wanna be on the production team if it meant to do stuff like this lmao

Congrats to everyone on the team, you’ve all managed to create a wonderful channel and amazing content. All the best, merry Christmas and a happy new year!
I can’t believe I’ve been to a place Tom Scott has been. I stayed in the Olympic village, and it was awesome. If you have the money/ time, I would recommend it to anyone who loves winter sports. I did the bobsled, dog sledding, and had the best ski trip of my life. Truly an awesome place
Nice to see the team around you. And the Australian/Canadian accent puts two friendly cultures in one sound.
Vancouverite here, considering the UBC video I was hoping that you'd done a trip up to Whistler as well!! It's a bit morbid but I'm very curious if they told you about the death that occurred on this track just before the Olympics or if it was better that you didn't know.
Is that Nodar Kumaritashvili (Georgia), who died in 2010 just before the Vancouver Games?
@Noah Talks Money most likely. Lost control on a practice run, was launched from the track and struck an unsheilded support column if memory serves. Not sure if it could have been prevented, or if padding support structures is standard for such bobsled runs, and the Whistler track was deficient in some way.
Kumartashvili was a luger; an accident like his would not occur in a bobsled. Plus, the track infrastructure has since been adapted to prevent this, and Tom's team took a lower start point so were going below maximum speed.
@Michael Dayman Wikipedia isn't necessarily the best source, but it's good for getting a quick overview... According to the wiki page on Nodar Kumaritashvili, the lugers on the track were reaching about ten miles an hour faster than the track had been rated for, which was a contributing factor. He left the track at a bend and struck a support pole; despite immediately receiving CPR and mouth-to-mouth, he had sustained serious injury and died in hospital. An incredibly sad story.
Enjoy your well-deserved break team, this channel is great and I’m so glad Tom took the risk with creating it!
Great show Tom and team!! I kinda wanted to see Tom be in a flipped sled so we can hear what the experience was really like. Your descriptions are just so on-point. 😁👍
I love how much fun you all seem to be having together!
Absolutely Brilliant! Thank you Crew for making Tom do this.
Welp, looks like I've got a new item on my bucket list! Thanks for the show, folks!
I guess Tom Scott is just ticking off the boxes of what TechDiff could've done. Bobsled. GoPro on Tom's (not-so-) gurning face. We already got Tom Scott on ice, Garry Brannan in bed (and presumably at night). Tom's almost gone on fire twice now (with Steele and without an active volcano), and Chris almost gone on fire once (with the welding). All we really need now I guess is Matt Gray working with some bees. Also someone doing curling.
Don’t forget the time he (Tom) asked to get set on fire.
Great seeing you push your personal limits Tom!
That forward shot at max speed was surreal, it looks so fun and terrifying at the same time
I am absolutely devastated that I have a shitty heart that doesn’t work so well bc this looks like so much fun 😭
Im absolutely loving the content thats coming from you guys from my hometown! Hope you're all enjoying your say here on the west coast!
Its amazing how far you have come from having your fear of roller coasters to going down in a sled at over 100 km/hour.
Merry Christmas to Tom and all the team! Best wishes from Brum! See you in 2023!👍🏼
i love professional briefings, they add for "safety" but funny enough in return make it more scary because of the different anticipation afterwards no^
Another brilliant video! Thank you Tom and team for all the amazing content this year! Enjoy a well deserved holiday!
Great way to end out the year and this run of videos, including the whole team. That POV shot from the bob is incredible to watch too! Well done for all the work put into this channel, I’ve loved following along. Favourite is the Alton Towers one, that’s a frickin’ masterpiece of a video. I also really liked coffee with James, ice cream with Barry and cycling with Mike.
Thank you Tom, for this video, and for every video on your channels over the years, I haven't commented before, but given how things may be changing I wanted to say a massive thank you for every single video, I have loved the journey and all the learning, I wish you, your family and friends a very Happy Holiday Season and I wish you the very best for 2023.
Thank you Tom, and your crew, thank you for all you do and have done on youtube, fantastic viewing always....but this was really amazing.....

So ive been binging this channels videos wondering why i like them so much, like all the content is amazing and so cool but i was wondering just why specifically. And i realized i was a huge Unus Annus fan when it was out, and i realize now that thi channel really reminds me of it, like doing things that are abit out there, having fun new experiences it really has the spirit of unus annus in like a calmer way and i vibe with it so much :3
hard agee, its like old mellow unus annus :3
It’s always nice to see other Unus Annus fans!
This channel has become one of the greatest delights this year. Love every video, despite them being so varied and unique
I love that Tom has become a straight-up thrillseeker
The glee in Tom's eye as the demonstration is done is the biggest gift of them all, plus shitting the pants of your production team that rode the sleigh is a highlight for us all!
