I don’t care what commercial or spoof this is, it speaks about something true enough in the real world:  If you leave enough jackasses around the shop with gear on hand, they’ll come up with something like this.

The golf-style commentary really makes it funny, but the whole thing reminds me of high-school shop class — you know, when the one or two smart guys were learning skills that would forward them in life while the rest of the class were figuring out how far the table saw could launch a board across the shop.

Guess which group I fell in.

    One word. Flashback. To that fool who didn’t forsee the consequences of oiling the pressure gauge he installed on a full size oxygen cylinder. When the oxygen hit that gauge under full pressure the oil exploded, taking the gauge off and sending the loose cannon cylinder through a concrete block wall.

  3. I could watch this a million times over. It really goes to show that even stilly stunts can prove to be a beneficial creative break from working on a project–whether you’re doing the stunt or watching it in awe. This was a very entertaining and inspiring video. Thanks for sharing!

    I wonder what would happen if you pointed four tanks straight down and taped them onto a chair? To blow the ends off the tank you would have to rig shotgun shells to mousetraps on each tank, then string them all together to make a rip cord. If the tanks were big enough, you could get to the space station!

    This is an old Tango advert for anyone wondering, they probably only do the drink over here in the UK.

    After seeing this video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAnAaFgjiiA these stunts aren’t as fun as they seemed. Don’t watch unless you want to be too scared to go in your workbench or garage ever again.
