A video showing a chain of beads
behaving in a very peculiar way appeared on Youtube some time ago. Many people attempted to provide explanations, but most of them weren't quite satisfactory.
Later, two physicists published a paper
(paywalled) on the phenomenon and posted a video
discussing it on the Royal Society Youtube channel. They also talk about the educational value of the demonstration and the analysis in the video.
