Check out Some Destructive Sample Videos From Today’s GE #SpringBreakIt Campaign
I'm a little teapot short and stout. Here is my—OH GOD WHAT'S HAPPENING!?
This morning, we told you about GE’s #SpringBreakIt campaign where they will send you slow-motion videos of things getting destroyed for science if you tweet at them with that hashtag. If you need further convincing that this is an awesome use of your time, here are a few sample videos they sent us.
Teapots are great at holding tea and for… not much else really. One thing they’re terrible at is withstanding 100,000lbs of force.
Is your coffee mug just not cutting it anymore? Teach it a lesson by showing it this video.
“W” is for “Why are you crushing me?” Or maybe it’s an “M”? At least… maybe it used to be an “M.”
Ever get sprayed with an unwanted perfume sample while walking through a store? Then love seeing a perfume bottle get turned to dust.
These are just a few samples. GE has smashed a lot more things. They also crushed and blasted a lot more. Tweet at them with #SpringBreakIt all day and get a delightfully destructive stream of slow-motion videos in your feed.
Honestly, if they made a 90-minute supercut of things being violently wrecked by machines and released it in theaters I’d go, and I don’t think I’d be alone.
