Probably asked before but I couldn't find it.
Watching youtube and saw the new slime featured in the Nick commercials... It looks gooey but less chunky by far compared to YCDTOTV. Are they using the Methyl-Cellulose slime nowadays for those slimings along with the ones you see at the Kids Video awards?
How do you get ahold of that stuff without spending a fortune if that's the case? is it available in Canada?

From what I've heard it depends on who they're sliming.
If they're sliming their own talent or other celebrities, they'll use a formula which is basically green shampoo (which, I believe, is thickened with methyl-cellulose). When sliming civilians, they apparently use a more edible concoction made from applesauce and yogurt.
The "earwax" on the BrainSurge brain drain is just colored shaving foam.

Do you mean water and Methyl-Cellulose or do you mean something like baby shampoo with methyl-cellulose?

Just looks perfect for an event like this. And it looks easier to clean off compared to flour and water.

That brings up an interesting question that I've always wondered about the slime from yesteryear and now; are audience members warned against consuming the slime? It seems like a general common sense rule of thumb, but with the amount of children that come into contact with the slime, especially in some of the older shows, I didn't know if maybe there was a disclaimer or warning before people who could potentially be slimed entered the stage or studio?

I thought I remembered reading somewhere that the slime Nick used for "Slime Time Live" was basically runny vanilla pudding colored with green food coloring. Not sure if this is true or if it is true, if they still use the recipe.
I know what you mean about the commercial bumpers though... especially the one with the cast of "iCarly." Jennette McCurdy and Jerry Trainor get absolutely plastered in that one. I keep hoping they'll make one featuring the guys in Big Time Rush, if for no other reason that those guys are so annoying (this is 2010, who needs another Backstreet Boys clone?!) that they deserve to get slimed.

I think yes.
They are still using it.
The videos show it all.
