Excavator Builds Its Own Bridge To A Boat, Tries To Board

January 6, 2016

excavator-and-boat-a-love-story.jpg

This is a video from somewhere where this seemed like a good idea of an excavator attempting to cross the dirt bridge it built and board a boat. Things go wrong. Just about as wrong as they possibly could. I like to think of this video as a kind of short film about two star-crossed lovers. Like a birdman who falls in love with a mermaid -- it's a love that simply cannot be.

Hit the jump for the video, then come up with some bright ideas of your own.

A half thanks to whichever frenemy posted this on their Facebook wall. I know you're a frenemy because you didn't send it to me directly.

    "...and then there was trouble."

    That went down like the Pequod, one arm raised to the end.

    I almost feel that if they went faster and then spun around quicker to support the other side with the scoop that it could have been successful…

  • Excavators are always doin' crazy nonsense like this. It's gotta be in their blood... Er, hydraulic fluid, rather...

    If somebody gave me an excavator and tasked me with sinking a boat, I don't think I would have considered it an easy task to do on purpose. Yet, these guys make it look so easy.

  • We all complain about how Health & Safety Regulations have gone too far, but when there are none this sort of stuff happens.

  • Bling Nye

    Less OSHA, more OHSHIT!

    I love the progression in this video. It goes from, oh, that seems like a clever way to accomplish that task, to, hmm, I think they might be in a bit of a pickle, to OMG! OMG! OMG! to, ... well, that wasn't a very good idea at all...

    He's gonna make it! He's gonna make it! Oh, nvm. Everything is underwater.

    One of my goals in life is to be featured in a video that goes viral on LiveLeak.

  • The Tear of a Nigga

  • TheQiwiMan
