This shows two "opposite" pulses approaching the middle of the screen. When they meet, they "cancel" each other out while the pulses are traveling through each other—and the middle plastic tubes don't get knocked down. You then see the waves continue moving after they meet—showing that they don't cancel each other out permanently. The tubes on the other side don't get knocked down becuase the pulse has lost some of its energy in the process.
