That's a pain that's gonna linger.

The esteemed Jonny Lieberman has posted some footage of some 1968 General Motors internal crash tests over at WebRidesTV.com, and we highly recommend jumping on over and watching the short video. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll cringe. And don’t worry, there’s no mangled bodies, just primitive test dummies being flung around like so much chaff on the wind.

Two moments in particular got us laughing. One is where the dummy is dragged underneath the car it was ejected out of, the other is when the flames fan slowly and dramatically towards the camera. Comedy gold! But don’t forward this to Nader, it might kill the poor guy.

    Growing up, my mom always said that everyone on my dad’s side of the family were dummies. I just couldn’t watch this.
