When people have a love of YouTube and a lot of free time on their hands, some pretty crazy things can happen. Someone with a spare first-generation VW Beetle and a car shredder decided to be creative in dismantling their hippie heirloom, so they slapped together a faux-comedy. The action saves this amateur video, though, as the helpless little bug is ruthlessly shredded in under two minutes. While we can't call this news, it's definitely entertaining, and you can watch it after the jump.

      What a great waste of money. They could have fixed the car up resold it.

      Stinkin' hippies.

      For a site made up of mostly left wing nut job posters, it's quite entertaining to see people bashing hippies, another far left whack job group.

      I'd have tried to save the car, do a proper resto, and sell it. What a waste of a perfectly good project car. I wonder if anyone's ever dropped a 455 H.O. into a bug?

      In its time that was one solid little car, even when I had to use a bungy cord to keep it in gear.

      First generation? That looks like a 1303... the last evolution of the rear-engined bug.

      I sure wish they would have shredded a PRIOUS! THAT would have made my day!!! Or better yet an ELEMENT!

      would have been more fun to have seen an Escalade dropped in there
        • 7 Years Ago
        I agree entirely. On second thought, maybe a HUMMER would be more entertaining.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Nah, how about an excursion, that is, if it can fit.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Or a Prius!

      I think it would have been more entertaining if they just made a video saying "check out this video of us shredding a vw beetle."
      • 7 Years Ago
      Yes, but will it blend?
