how not to perform a scientific experiment

My #3 Ajumma just linked me to this video, which purports to test the effectiveness of several face masks that are on the market. I was mentally comparing this video to how the Mythbusters would test the same scenario, and as a result, I weighed this video and found it very, very much wanting. I can easily write up a list of at least twenty flaws with the TV segment's "methodology," if that term even applies here. I'm sure you can come up with your own lists, so have at it in the comments section if you wish.
