Bill Nye May Know Science But He Also Knows Bowties, Watch Him Show Chris Hardwick How It’s Done

It's Technical

Bill Nye has been making a name for himself again in the pop-culture realm. The ex-kid’s television host has been giving commencement speeches, helping Neil deGrasse Tyson get a space documentary Kickstarted, and he even has his own informative YouTube videos. But today he’s sharing the screen with The Nerdist, Chris Hardwick, and imparting some serious wisdom. A very important piece of wisdom in fact, that many have let fall into the past. I’m talking about tying a bowtie. And you might even learn a few new words while you watch! There’s just one thing this video is missing – Matt Smith.
