THE BEST Destruction

LEGO Porsche Crash Test

LEGO Porsche Crash Test

One of the cooler LEGO Technic kits out there is the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It’s simply stunning. But that didn’t stop the guys from c’t Magazine from taking theirs and smashing it into a wall, with the help of the German automotive safety group ADAC and their crash test facility.

Bowling in Slow-motion

Bowling in Slow-motion

When The Slow Mo Guys team up with Blue Man Group, you know they’re going to make a mess of epic proportions. That’s exactly what they did in this extended length video, as they used bowling balls to wreak as much havoc as possible in front of a high-speed camera.

Oobleck vs. Dynamite

Oobleck vs. Dynamite

(PG-13: Language) The Beyond the Press channel teamed up with Sons of Explosions to make a big mess. They took a vat full of cornstarch and water – also known as the non-newtonian goo called “oobleck,” and blew it up real good to see how it behaved. Skip to 3:28.

The Giant Mousetrap

The Giant Mousetrap

The Backyard Scientist has outdone himself with his latest experiment. He built himself a gigantic replica of a mousetrap. The spring-loaded mechanism can demolish stuff at speeds up to 42 mph. We’d just hate to see the mouse this thing was designed for.

Cutting with Paper

Cutting with Paper

If you’ve ever gotten a paper cut, you know how sharp the edge of a sheet of the stuff can actually be. The Q shows us how rapidly spinning a disc of paper on an angle grinder can turn it into a circular saw. Needless to say, keep all fingers and toes away from this thing.

Air Pistol Pellets in Slow Motion

Air Pistol Pellets in Slow Motion

The Slow Mo Guys filmed air pistol pellets being shot through deodorant sticks. The projectile is so fast, even viewing it at 120,000fps isn’t that satisfying. But at least we found out that you can both be invincible at airsoft and smell good with just one thick vest.

Crimping Some Balls

Crimping Some Balls

After discovering the hydraulic crimping machines at Lillbacka Powerco, the guys from Beyond the Press decided to subject a whole bunch of balls to the deadly force of one of these impressive machines. The rubber band ball was particularly satisfying.

Overpowering a Radiator Fan

Overpowering a Radiator Fan

The guys at Photonicinduction like to apply way too much current to items. In their latest experiment, they overpowered the electric fan from a car’s radiator, turning it into an impromptu drone before its motor ultimately met its maker.

Drone with a Blade

Drone with a Blade

Master of destruction Giaco Whatever teamed up with master of drone Mr. Steele, and attached a razor-sharp blade to one of his quadcopters. Steele then flew the deadly beast straight at some fruits and veggies. It slices, it dices. It even makes julienne fries!

Shredding a Volvo

Shredding a Volvo

During a recent Top Gear bit, Matt LeBlanc turned his attention from cars and interviews to wanton destruction – pushing watermelons, a shed, and an entire Volvo through a Bunning Lowlander Widebody 380HD – a piece of machinery designed for spreading mulch.

Vacuum vs. Marshmallow Bear

Vacuum vs. Marshmallow Bear

The Vacuum Chamber answers a question we never knew we wanted the answer to until now: What does a giant marshmallow gummy bear look like when you suck all the air out of the room? Press play and find out.

Hydraulic Crimping Channel

Hydraulic Crimping Channel

The guys from the Hydraulic Press Channel took a momentary break from crushing stuff with their press, and dropped by Lillbacka Powerco to play with their Finn-Power crimping machine, which is capable of crushing small objects from all sides with 320 tons of force.

White Hot Tungsten Cube

White Hot Tungsten Cube

The Beyond the Press channel raises the stakes (and steaks) against the old Red Hot Nickel Ball folks, heating up a cube of tungsten to over 3000º C (~5432º F), then uses it to quickly cook some meat and take on a shockingly resiliant watermelon.

Mousetrap vs. Hot Dog

Mousetrap vs. Hot Dog

It’s just an inanimate object, but there’s something about the shape and fleshy consistency of this frankfurter being snapped in twain by a mousetrap that will make you cringe. Warped Perception captured the carnage at up to 147,000 fps to drag out the pain.

Hydraulic Press vs. Vice

Hydraulic Press vs. Vice

(PG-13: Language) While it’s fun to watch the deadly hydraulic press smush soft items, it’s far more satisfying to see it take on things that you’d think would be indestructible – like this metal vice. But it makes quick work of this and a few other random items in their latest video.

Electric Wolverine Claws

Electric Wolverine Claws

The Hacksmith dusted off the real metal Wolverine claws he made a few years back, then connected them to a 12-volt car battery. The result – lots of sparks, molten steel wool, shredded aluminum foil, and the coolest way to start a fire ever.

Sh*tty Claw Machine

Sh*tty Claw Machine

(PG-13 Language) Claw machines are the worst. They look like they’ll be so much fun until they eat all of your money as you try to win a stupid stuffed animal worth a dollar. Simone Giertz modded a machine to grab a prize every time.

Exploding Batteries in Slow-Mo

Exploding Batteries in Slow-Mo

The Slow-Mo Guys ignore all the warning labels on a bunch of small lithium batteries, exposing them to fire, and turning them into tiny rocket ships and bombs in front of their Phantom high-speed camera. We can only imagine how nasty large batteries would be if they blew up.

Hydraulic Press vs. Adamantium

Hydraulic Press vs. Adamantium

(PG-13: Language) The Hydraulic Press Channel claims to have gotten their claws on some actual Adamantium, and from the looks of their latest video, it seems plausible. Though it’s far more likely that they’re just doing a sponsored promo video for Logan.

Razor Spinner Top vs Butane

Razor Spinner Top vs Butane

Giaco Whatever’s razor-edged spinning top is already deadly enough – now he’s taken aim at a variety of new objects to shred – from making some egg salad, to getting toothpaste out of the tube, to blowing up butane-filled lighters. In other news, Barbie got a new hairstyle.

Inside the Microwave: Ivory Soap

Inside the Microwave: Ivory Soap

We’ve seen tons of videos of stuff destroyed inside of microwaves, but the footage is shot through the mesh door, and hard to see. Steve Mould figured out a way to record inside his oven without damaging the camera, providing a detailed look at what happens inside.

How to Fix a Laser Printer

How to Fix a Laser Printer

(PG-13: Language) While it’s not quite as satisfying as the PC LOAD LETTER scene in Office Space, we still can appreciate the way thehypnoguy1 and his pals fixed their broken laser printer once and for all.

Slow-Mo Airbag Paint Explosion

Slow-Mo Airbag Paint Explosion

A few years ago The Slow Mo Guys gave us a close look at airbags’ explosive deployment mechanism. But here they used the life-saving device to spray lots of powdered paint. They’d be mad if they don’t add this to their channel trailer.

Spinning Top w/ Razor Blades

Spinning Top w/ Razor Blades

We thought playing with a fidget spinner at 99,999+ RPM was dangerous, but Giaco Whatever’s spinning top that’s been modded with razor blades seems like a much worse idea. Watch as it makes quick work of hot dogs, cans, balloons, fruit, and thankfully no fingers.

Hydraulic Press v. Prince Rupert’s Drop

Hydraulic Press v. Prince Rupert’s Drop

We’ve seen the strange properties of these hardened glass drops before. Now see how one handles the deadly hydraulic press. It’s so strong that it damages the press tools before violently exploding. Hopefully these guys can buy a better high-speed camera soon.

Snapping Steel in Slow-Mo

Snapping Steel in Slow-Mo

Reinforced steel beams are incredibly strong, but the guys at Purdue University have a machine that can actually rip them apart. The Slow Mo Guys turned their high-speed camera towards the carnage for our entertainment pleasure. The suspense was killing us.
