An expensive Les Paul Guitar. An expensive Strat-style guitar. An expensive refrigerator. Let's all just take two minutes out of our day and gaze on as they're destroyed by fire and explosion, in super slo mo. It's beautiful. It's cathartic.
The clips are from Mike Senese, who engineered the destruction for his role as co-host of the Science Channel's Catch It Keep It. You can check out the full ins and outs of how best to rig 45kg of thermite to torch a Les Paul at his blog. Or just keep watching that video until you've decided whether the soundtrack is Sigur Ros or "One Less Lonely Girl" a slowed down 800 per cent. [Mike Senese]
