"Physicists Gone Wild" is a video recorded on Howard's phone at Leonard and Sheldon's talk on their paper, although Leonard was the only one to talk. The video was recorded in the episode "The Cooper-Hofstadter Polarization" and published on YouTube in Howard's point of view.

The Video[]

The video was a physical fight had between Leonard and Sheldon at the talk Leonard was giving about their paper called Paradoxical Moment-of-Inertia Changes Due to Putative Super-Solids in "The Cooper-Hofstadter Polarization". Sheldon refused to go and afterwards said the talk was rubbish. As Howard begins to record, Sheldon tried to blow up Leonard's head or give him an anomerism. Leonard swatted at Sheldon and Sheldon started to complain to the audience about it. Leonard tried to defend himself and they stated into a verbal argument.

Sheldon resumed trying to blow up his head, warning people in the front row that they may get splashed as Raj was also in the video, looking perplexed. Leonard resumed hitting him and pushing him, Sheldon grabs Leonard and pulls him to the floor, resulting in the 2 of them rolling about on the floor. Sheldon tries to pinch Leonard so Leonard grabs Sheldon's hands while Sheldon complains that his fingernails hurt. After seeing the video, Leonard comments on his suit and Sheldon complains that his arms were waving about a lot.


  • The video was actually recorded on Simon Helberg's phone.
  • The phone was the same one used to take Howard's Facebook profile picture of Penny and him.
