Watch This Bowling Ball Lose a Battle With a Hydraulic Press


Let the carnage continue! From crushed golf balls to flattened Barbie dolls, the Hydraulic Press Channel has delivered some very satisfying content to its subscribers on YouTube since it launched last October. The show's premise is pretty straightforward: object takes on hydraulic press, object loses spectacularly. Gizmodo shared a recent video from the channel that involves a bowling ball and a bowling pin, neither of which lasts very long when the pressure is applied.

First up was the bowling pin, which was placed on its side before the press slowly crushed it, revealing a soft wooden core. "I think the bowling ball is going to be much more exciting," the press operator said, and he was correct. The ball explodes much faster than the pin, sending chunks of polyurethane flying in every direction. During the slow motion replay, you can hear the ball begin to crack a split second before the pressure becomes too much.

Watch the clip above and subscribe to see what the brains behind the channel think of next. Our fingers are crossed for something just as epic, but with much more fluid. Bring on the snow globes!
