These dudes figured out how to make an egg (sort of) indestructible

The How Ridiculous YouTube channel guys are back with a followup to their “indestructible watermelon” episode.

Using the same protective spray that kept a watermelon (sort of) intact, the show’s hosts coated a light bulb and egg to see if the items would survive a fall from 45 meters (about 150 feet). They also dropped a bowling ball covered in the stuff onto an ax from the same distance to see if the ax could cut through the coating.

The Line-x coating is a brand of protective sealant coatings that are commonly used in truck beds. It’s made of polyurethane and other chemicals that adhere to surfaces on at a molecular level, according to the company’s website. It basically makes a shell around the object. But as the video shows, it might not protect the contents of that shell from shattering within it.

It’s unclear if How Ridiculous will make more videos, but hopefully they’ll try some of the suggestions in the comments on the video, like a Lego creation.
