You know those videos that make you think, "OK, that's enough internet for right now..."? Well, this might be one of them, but it's pretty epic at the same time. These guys decided to make a remote controlled washing machine, and although it's just ridiculous, it's hilarious to watch it in action.
Once I saw that this video was made by Don't Try This at Home Productions, I knew it was going to be a good one. With "The Imperial March" from Star Wars playing in the background, it just kept getting better and better. The song choice is surprisingly fitting for this video. As the washer get's going in the driveway, it's just freely dragging around the electrical cord that's plugged into an extension. Don't mind the puddles of water that it's dragging through.
They don't actually have a way to steer this thing, so once it was turned on, the machine pretty much went any way it felt like going. That's why at one point, you see one of the guys chasing it down to try and steer it in the right direction. Another clip showed the camera guy having to jump out of the way, after the washer took a hard left straight towards him. The thing was wildly unstable, and teetered back and forth plenty of times before landing on its face at the end of the video.
I'll be honest, there's no real reason to make a remote controlled washing machine, but I'm pretty glad these guys decided to do it. It actually took a good amount of work to make this thing drivable, but they filmed the process and uploaded that to their channel as well if you want to check it out. I doubt this machine lasted very long, but I'd say it was worth the effort to make this funny video.
