About Hydraulic Press Channel

Finland-born Lauri Vuohensilta is crushing it on the internet, literally. He isn’t lying when he claims, “Wanna see stuff getting crushed by hydraulic press? This is the right channel for you.” The YouTube phenomenon, which started in late 2015 and (with the help of rabid Reddit fans) grew to have 1.6M+ subscribers and over 175M views this year, is filled with videos of everyday things getting crushed by a hydraulic press. What happens when you put a diamond—which we all know is the hardest stone around—under the hydraulic press? Or a bowling ball? We don’t want to spoil it for you, so simply visit Hydraulic Press Channel and find out for yourself. Trust us, it’s awesome.
