DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

This is from season 7 episode 23 "Mini Myth Mayhem" of Mythbusters as seen on the Discovery Channel.

The myth is if you dip your hand in water then in molten lead, you won't get burned because of the leidenfrost effect: the steam creates a protective shield around the hand.
