Water is a pretty amazing substance. It coats our planet, makes up the vast majority of our bodies, and – most importantly – proves to be an endless source of YouTube hijinks. You remember, of course, the cretins-in-a-carwash video, in which water's destructive powers were just hinted at. But in all seriousness, water is not to be messed with. Whether leaking into your basement, sweeping away cars in a flash flood, or unleashing hell in the form of a tsunami, water's capacity for violence and disaster is as great as anything dreamed up by man.

Enough with the preamble. Combine water's devastating power with some heavy machinery and a really awful quality camcorder and you get the priceless video after the jump.

      Im not surprised at the damage. That bucket held at least a ton or two of water, and most of that hit the car square-on with full force. That wont buff out

      Leaky roofs during carwashes are frequent problems with convertibles, which is essentially what that wagon became.

      Would you like an air freshener with your wash, sir? Oh wait, no need - there is plenty of fresh air in here now . . .

      I hope someone wasn't expecting their car to come out unscathed.

      It's like the damage sustained when you flop into water from a great height, but reversed.

          fighting facts with cheap sarcasm. great.from my part it was just well deserved criticism. hopefully, next time, the good old free (I could elaborate a lilbit on this but I don't really care to open your eyes) will double, triple verify the leads they receive before posting them as news.

        Where did AB say this was new?

          Monte, AB is a blog, hence the name. It ISN'T a news website. So ANYTHING can be posted on this website whether it be new or old. The amount of morons who come out of the woodwork like you that say "OLD NEWS!" is starting to get a little tiring.

          @elmo - from wiki: A blog (a blend of the term web log)[1] is a type of website or part of a website supposed to be updated with new content from time to time. I guess this was not one of those times. so stfu (moron). get your facts straight before calling names, ok?
