Synopsis: Two guys decide to head to the streets of America to find out just what people know—or don't know, as the case may be—about the Mormons.

Reaction: It's definitely funner to watch for the target Mormon audience, but it's fun to hear just what kinds of impressions people have of Latter Day Saints
