Have You Seen This? Joey from 'Friends' shreds a Volvo

Posted April 10

TOP GEAR — I know. You never thought you’d read a headline that said that. You probably never even wanted to read a headline that said that. Well, you were wrong. And I think by the time you finish watching this video, you'll be glad you were wrong.

The video is a clip from the British TV show, "Top Gear," which apparently, Matt LeBlanc (aka Joey from "Friends") hosts these days. You learn something new every day.

During the clip, LeBlanc and guest Tamsin Greig put an industrial muck spreader to the test to see how well it can shred a number of unusual objects. They start out by sending a whole bunch of watermelons through the muck spreader, and predictably, that results in what they call a "melon storm."

They move on next to a wooden garden shed, as if they're hoping to shred it like that bank statement you turned into confetti before tossing it into your garbage. But that's nothing compared to what happens when they send an actual Volvo through the muck spreader.

LeBlanc giggles in absolute delight as the Volvo is destroyed by the machine. The demolition is pretty intense, but it's most likely a view you've never seen before.

As someone who has never watched "Top Gear," there's a lot going on in this video that I don’t understand, including a laugh track. But I enjoyed it regardless, and what would the “Have You Seen This?” column be if we didn’t bring you the best and weirdest the internet has to offer.
