Here’s What Happens When You Crush A Load Of Gummy Bears With A Hydraulic Press

No actual bears were hurt during the making of this video.

Here at Mpora, our love for the Hydraulic Press Channel is no secret. We’ve written about what happens when you put a bowling ball in a hydraulic press, we’ve written about what happens when you put an exploding shark in a hydraulic press, and now we’re writing about what happens when you put an army of gummy bears (and their gummy bear king) into a hydraulic press.

If you’ve never seen a Hydraulic Press Channel video before, you really have been missing out. The dude who narrates the action is a big fat slice of comedy gold, and the experience of watching things get crushed by a hydraulic press is one of the most satisfying things you’ll ever see. If you’re already a fan of this cool YouTube channel, and know what it’s all about, you’ll be pleased to hear that this video is everything you’ve come to expect. This time with gummy bears.

Because we like to portray the Hydraulic Press Channel videos as being vaguely scientific, and not just some silly bollocks, we’ve decided to investigate what exactly constitutes a standard gummy bear. One speedy bit of Googling later, and we’ve learnt that the standard gummy bear contains a mixture of sugar (obviously), glucose syrup, starch, flavouring, food colouring, citric acid, and gelatine.

Our only concern, and it’s only a mild one in fairness, is that some gummy bears will see this video as the final straw in their ongoing subjugation to the humans. Filled with anger, and hatred for this particularly cruel kind of gummy bear sadism, they’ll rise up with tiny pitchforks (made of gelatine), overthrow governments, and instate their own gummy bear dictatorships upon the world.
