Watch a Hydraulic Press Take On a Giant Gummy Bear


No animals were harmed during the making of this YouTube video, but a few perfectly edible gummy bears did perish. In one of the latest installments from The Hydraulic Press Channel, the team behind the popular YouTube channel demonstrates what millions of viewers already know: a trip to the hydraulic press equals total annihilation for just about everything—and that includes gummy bears of various sizes.

The flexibility of the gummy candy helps at first, but eventually the hydraulic press powers through and even the largest bear gets mangled. Depending on your love of the classic candy, the footage (above) is either satisfying, heartbreaking, or some confusing mixture of the two.
