Hydraulic Press Sends Bowling Ball Straight To Hell

Probably the most consistently entertaining channel in the game right now is YouTube’s Hydraulic Press Channel. It’s short, simple, visually impressive, and pretty much every video they put out is a banger. In the last few months, you’ve got a satisfying take on the snooze button, some bubble wrap getting absolutely taken to the limit, and the new classic “paper exploding” video. But nothing would seem at first glance to put up as much of a fight as the venerable bowling ball, which nevertheless gets blown the hell up in about 1 second flat.

Why does it do that? If bowling balls are so brittle, why don’t they explode on contact with the hardwood floor at the alley? Is it because bowling pins, too, are super fragile? No idea.

Looks cool, though.
