It Hurts To Watch Camera Destruction and Yet We Can’t Look Away


Crushing Camera

If you’re not familiar with the Hydraulic Press Channel on youtube it is nothing short of amazing. The concept is so simple, a guy from Finland takes all sorts of things, ranging from crushing a diamond, a ball bearing, to an attempt at folding a piece of paper 7 times (my favorite).

But now, he has gone and grabbed something near and dear to our hearts.


I can’t stop watching and if I wasn’t laughing so hard maybe I wouldn’t share this with you. But… well I can’t NOT share it.

Everyone grab hands and link arms, let’s get through it together.  (and please no one tell John Greengo)
