Man Vs Heavy Machinery: Rock-Throwing Guy Tries To Fight Giant Excavator

August 4, 2016


This is a video from Finland of a man throwing rocks at an excavator, while the machine's human operator nimbly keeps the machine's bucket between the rocks and himself. It's pretty much a modern David and Goliath, if police had shown up and hauled David off to jail before he could get a killing shot in. Truthfully, despite the promising concept, the whole thing is was rather anticlimactic. Me? I could have taken that excavator out, no questions asked. If there's one thing I know, it's how to fight machines and break their morale. Just ask my vacuum. "He forcefed me coins and paperclips until I promised to act right." You're damn right I did.

Keep going for the video, which is best watched at 2x speed with the Benny Hill music playing in another browser window, as pointed out by commenters. Then it's actually pretty watchable.

    What a powerfully poetic metaphor for my love life.

    Didn't know saggy pants were a thing there too. All this video needs is to be sped up with Benny Hill music.

    Thankfully Youtube allows for 2x playback, so I just imagined the music. Seriously though. Rock vs machine that tears through rocks for breakfast? What was he thinking?

    Speed it up 2x on Youtube and open another Youtube tab playing the Benny Hill theme song. Its fantastic lol. Great idea haha

    "You cannot pass," he said. The orcs stood still, and a dead silence fell. "I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass."

    A clear case of having too much spare time and a real hate for digs.
