Smashy, yet satisfying.
In October 2015, engineer and student Lauri Vuohensilta began uploading videos of himself crushing objects with his hydraulic press to YouTube.
At first, Vuohensilta’s videos received little attention.
However after a number were shared on Reddit in mid-March, his Hydraulic Press Channel gained almost 50,000 subscribers in a day, with each video receiving millions of views.
The channel’s surge in popularity inspired the creator to make more videos, including one pitting a blender against the press.
