Tiny Cannon Packs A Huge Punch, Drags Handler To Ground

July 15, 2019


This is a video from a Cinco de Mayo celebration in the town of San Juan de Aragón, Mexico of a mock battle involving a tiny cannon that packs such a punch when its shot that it drags one of its handlers to the ground behind it. You know I was thinking just the other day I wish I took part in more celebrations that involve mock battles with cannons and rifles and less that involve making my dogs wear party hats and try to bark 'For He's A Jolly Good Fellow'. Which I'm not really, just for the record.

Keep going for the full video, complete with some rifle action after the cannon.

Thanks to Pewlizter, who knows what I like, and I like surprisingly powerful explosions.

    Volume Cannon sounds like a great band name for a terrible sounding group. Possibly something Electronic, but whatever works

    How many people went temporary deaf after that huge boom?

    To be fair, if you were yanked backwards after bracing to be pulled from the side you'd fall over too.

    Meanwhile 200 yards down the road a cannon ball is going through a school, a house...but the poor guy who has to hold the cannon rope and now has longer arms but he's the main concern.

    You don't put a projectile in a display cannon. I mean, some people might be dumb enough to do that... But, signal cannons don't pack projectiles.

    I guess I could have read your comment before typing my own. You'd think I'd all learn, but I've been posting on message boards most of my life and I still don't bother to read the thread before commenting half of the time.

    Looks like they were bracing themselves against where the cannon was instead of where it was going.
