Sometimes, videos of stupid people wrecking stupid cars is fun. Our destruction-obsessed inner selves even get some guilty pleasure out of watching a really good demolition derby. But when said destruction is performed on a perfectly good sports car, it's no longer entertaining... it's just dumb. And so it's with a deeply saddened heart that we watched a video of a radio station in Finland, which goes by the name NRJ, drop what appears to be a first-gen Porsche Boxster about thirty meters from a crane. Supposedly, listeners voted to destroy the car rather than give it away. There's some mild suspense building in the crowd as they count down from five, but it's all rather anti-climactic after it actually makes contact below. We've dutifully placed the video after the break, but we must warn you that it's just over a minute of your life that you'll never get back. Consider yourselves warned.

      Big visual stunts for a radio show. Good job guys!

      They needed to have some fun with the Boxster before they dropped it. And, they should have dropped it on a travel trailer with gas left on. Something like this...

      It's not like they're destroying anything awesome.

      I liked the crunching sound as it hit the pavement at 60+ mph. Next up: BMW cars WITH their drivers (for more excitement!).

      Meanwhile, none of the cars in the area are half as fun to drive than the car that they wrecked.

      If this is to protest fuel consumption of toys of the rich and famous; they would do better to destroy a Bently GT or Mercedes uber S class.

      What better form of transportation than a small, lightweight, 4 or 6 cyl. 2 passenger vehicle. We need more of this type of thinking. If they are fun to drive maybe they will cut down on cell phone mayhem.

      At least the Scandinavian hair metal was kinda entertaining.

      Although I'm certainly no fan of the "Porsche" Boxster, it does seem kind of a waste. But, hey, whatever.

      Did Porsche's poor corporate CO2 emissions piss off the Socialists?

        Thanks for that laugh!

      An interesting waste of technology. Too bad it wasn't an SUV or monster truck.
