Impressive: Spray Coating Protects Watermelon From 150-Foot Drop

August 30, 2016

This is a video from the Australian guys of Youtube channel How Ridiculous dropping watermelons from a 45-meter (~148-feet) tower and watching them explode. As a bonus they drop a watermelon that's been covered with Line-X (a protective polyurethane elastomer spray most commonly used as a spray-in bed liner for trucks) AND IT BOUNCES. How about that! So, if I spray my roommate with this stuff then push him off the balcony is it still a murder charge or is it involuntary manslaughter because I thought he would bounce? I need to know because I've got the feeling that Sherlock Holmes is going to come around asking questions and I need my alibi to be as airtight as an airplane's butthole.

Keep going for the video. They saw the watermelon open at the end so you can see inside.

Thanks to Brett, part of the watermelon dropping crew, who should really invite me to come drop some things with them.

    I'm pretty sure the insides were pulverized despite the shell didn't crack apart.

  • GeneralDisorder

    They literally said that in the video.

    fair enough, I skipped around through the video because I thought the bro-dudes were really obnoxious.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I did too. But I did catch that part. It was very shortly after fourth or fifth replay of the bounce.

    And for what it's worth these dude-bros make the dude-bros from dudeperfect look like normal humble human beings. Which, to be fair, considering what they've accomplished the dude perfect guys aren't so bad.

    I wish I had a huge tower built expressly to throw stuff off of...

    Toward the end they cut it in half, you can see there is a GENEROUS amount of the stuff coated on it. It's not "only mm thick" as they say.

  • Titty McNipplefondler

    Hey, they said a few millimeters thick.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Suck it Gallagher!
