Finnish YouTube

Wanna see stuff getting crushed by hydraulic press? This is the right channel for you.

That’s is the description for the Hydraulic Press Channel, a YouTube channel where they, uh, crush things. Tyler found this stuff. The channel has been around for a few years already and they even made a video for Obama’s White House. It’s nostalgic for us to watch because of the host’s Finnish accent and attitude.

It’s winter there now so a perfect time to take their experiments outside. For instance, what happens when you put 20kg of red hot steel onto ice? Watch below for some “frozen lake stupidity.”

How do you get your props back again? As the host Lauri Vuohensilta says, “If you want something to be done, you just have to fucking do it.”

For more on Lauri and Anni’s background, ABC News, and the Washington Post have written them up.
