Barbie, you may have set impossible standards for young women across the world, but this is not the fate you deserved.

What do we know about Hydraulic Press Channel? We know this mysterious YouTuber lives somewhere in (or was born in) Eastern Europe. We know he loves metal. And we know he has ready access to a hydraulic press.

His most recent upload was rediscovered by Reddit recently. In it, he attempts to disprove the idea that a single sheet of paper can’t be folded more than seven times.

Contains a few other gems, like smooshing a phone, smooshing a watch, smooshing a golf ball, smooshing a camera and, of course, the smooshing of the aforementioned Barbie doll.

His brand new video pits the press against a blender, which loses quite handedly.
