Watch This Crystal Ball Get Crushed In Slow Motion


The preponderance of videos on YouTube where people use a variety of industrial tools to destroy things is one of the biggest mysteries of the modern age. Sure, it’s sort of cool to watch things crack and shatter under pressure, but what does it add to the world? Maybe you can gaze deep into this crystal ball and ask the spirits for answers before a hydraulic press crushes it into powder.

The clip from YouTube channel Warped Perception is pretty impressive for a variety of reasons. One, it’s shot in incredibly crisp 4K high-resolution video, with slow motion so you can appreciate all of the nuances of crystal crushing. Second, they somehow manage to keep the ball stable while the press exerts so much pressure on it. If you’re going to make a living filming acts of destruction, it’s nice that you’re doing it with quality and attention to detail.
