The paparazzi asked "MacGyver"
star RICHARD DEAN ANDERSON
what his favorite invention from the show was . . . and he had one.
It was the time MacGyver built an ultralight plane out of bamboo, garbage bags, duct tape, a fan, a cement mixer, and some wheelbarrow tires, in just a few hours.
Richard admitted that it wouldn't work in real life, and even noted that the "Mythbusters" guys once tried to make it work and failed. It was close, though.
But he did say that he thinks MOST of the inventions on the show would work . . . except for the explosives, because they purposely left out ingredients on those so that kids wouldn't try it at home and blow themselves up.
(Here's video of Richard talking to the paparazzi . . . amusingly, as he's loading some groceries into his car. MacGyver does his own shopping! Of course, he does!)
