Watch an engine and a helmet get crushed by hydraulic press
Stick around for the bonus watermelon explosion.
In order to add the appropriate amount of visual flair, the engine that's crushed inside the jaws of death is running. But not for long. After the cylinder is put under sufficient pressure that the piston locks up, the engine grinds to an immediate halt. Later, the piston gets the crushing treatment separately. Our favorite part, though, is the crushing end of the crankcase and block of this single-cylinder powerplant.
To top it all off, a motorcycle helmet gives its life to protect the watermelon head it so lovingly cossets. Sadly, the melon doesn't last long, but at least it's the kind of melon you eat and not the kind you think with. Either way, the end result is a mess.
