Top 10 Ways to Smash a Pumpkin

We’re fairly certain the guys at ThrashLab just put this video together for a chance to film themselves smashing things in slow motion. We’re completely OK with that.

From the pedestrian to the down right reckless, the above video catalogs ten different ways to get rid of your leftover Halloween pumpkins. (We’re dying to know how they convinced the guy to volunteer for #3.)

    One pumpkin wasn’t even damaged. 1 was exploded, several were chopped. I only saw 5 pumpkins smashed. The title of this was pure bollocks. FAIL.

    SMASH: To break (something) into pieces suddenly, noisily, and violently; shatter.

    CHOP: To cut by striking with a heavy sharp tool, such as an ax.

    Make that 4. One was crushed. Not smashed. Liars.

    Interesting to some extent… Nothing to write home and tell mom about, though. I am very curious to know just what it took to convince that guy to stand there with the pumpkin on his head and await the outcome of that flying hatchet.
