This long overdue update to our popular “This Had Great Potential, But Alas…” series is brought to you by New York hillbillies. Filmed in Lowville, Lewis County, New York, the video shows a guy trying to knock down a silo by collapsing the lower level panels with a sledge hammer. This was an incredibly dangerous undertaking and easily one of the most unbelievable cheats of death ever caught on camera. How he managed to avoid being crushed is beyond me, but he certainly earned an honorary Darwin Award nomination.
Props to Best Gore member FleshyVirus for the video:
