Why is everything getting squished by a hydraulic press lately and why does YouTube keep recommending I watch it?
Hydraulic Press Channel is a YouTube channel with the sole purpose of posting videos of crushing everyday objects with a 100 ton hydraulic press. The first set of videos were posted starting in November 2015 including Crushing golf ball with hydraulic press and Crushing barbie with hydraulic press. It wasn’t until a Reddit post to /r/videos in March 2016 did things start to take off. The Hydraulic Press Channel’s video Can you fold paper more than 7 times with a hydraulic press received over a million views in the following days and prompted the channel to begin posting new videos once again.
