Tool Demolition Video: Bosch Power Box Vs. Trebuchet
Bosch, being fully aware of our Trebubsession, has been nice enough to give us the first look at their new Power Box Beatdown video, in which the cubical radio goes head to head with a wonderful looking trebuchet. Actually, the term, 'head to head' indicates that there is a proactive stance from the Power Box. There isn't. It simply gets hurled about 150 feet. But what a great scene it is. Watch this Tool Snob Exclusive for yourself....
Now we've been very critical of tool demolition videos (see our lunatic ranting and raving here), and while this one breaks our cardinal rule of editing (once the demolition is in process any edits always make us think that the whole scene is rigged), it has a number of other things going for it...
1. Cows. No idea why, but the shot of the cows made us laugh out loud.
2. Music. The music selection made us feel like we were watching the Helm's Deep battle scene from LOTR (which is always a good thing).
3. A bunch of 'out-takes' at the end where we get to see the trebuchet from a number of different angles.
Also, we should note that in our big tool demolition video post, we called for the use of trebuchets in tool demolition videos. Little did we know that as we were writing that, Bosch was already in the process of putting this video together.
