Watermelon, renowned for being a delicious, refreshing treat, is also a wonderful source of entertainment, as a result of its ability to explode in a most humorous manner. Sure, bananas might be the go-to fruit in the comedy world, what with their shape and slippery peels, but watermelons can do so much more. Take a sledgehammer to them and you can have an entire stand-up career; throw some off the roof of a building and you can fill entire late night show segments and be called an innovator.
That is, so long as you don’t make them indestructible with a simple spray on protective cover.
That’s just what the guys at the YouTube channel How Ridiculous did, covering a watermelon with Line-X Spray, a product marketed as a way to protect the beds of pick-up trucks, before dropping the watermelon from 45 meters in the air (about 150 feet), where instead of exploding in to nothingness (like the regular watermelon did), it bounced like a basketball.
We first came across this video at Sploid, and while the exterior of the watermelon remained intact, the interior turned into a mush of red goop. But even getting to the innards required a power saw to open the whole thing up, after numerous swings of an ax proved futile.
And you know what else? Watermelons are hilarious even when they can’t be destroyed.
