Video: Seattle Area Scrapyard Destroys Ford Bronco With Seahawk Crane Claw
We're not taking sides on this weekend's Big Game, but this video was too funny and creative not to share. For all its liberal, peace-loving reputation, the Pacific Northwest is also known for being avid fans of their hometown favorite Seattle Seahawks, and even more so that they're headed to Super Bowl XLVIII. So what better way to show their support for the 'Hawks than to totally destroy an old junker Ford Bronco? Makes sense to us.
Area news site and paper, the Bellingham Herald, shared this video through its YouTube channel of guys at the Scrap-It scrapyard symbolically showing what they think will be the outcome of tomorrrow's game by the creative destruction of an orange and blue-painted 80s-era Ford Bronco. The video starts out with one of the staffers doing a smoky burnout in the Bronco. Once the crane claw starts hovering above, he quickly exits the vehicle, as the carnage begins. The Seahawks-painted claw crane is complemented by a another claw crane in the back, and between the two of them, make short work of the Bronco's shell in a matter of minutes.
It's not long until the old Bronco is reduced to a pile of steaming metal rubble. Ironically, a beer bottle seems to have survived the assault relatively unscathed, rolling out from the ruins at around 2:30. Broncos fans, we apologize in advance if we offended you, but you've got to admit this is a pretty creative way of showing support for your team.
