For those with sensitive dispositions or of unnaturally weak constitutions, you may want to avert your eyes, as the carnage that unfolds is not pretty. On the other hand, if you thought that Brilliance European crash test that made the rounds a while back was the coolest thing that you’ve ever seen in your life, you should click the link below and watch this Holden Commodore go all accordion-like.

Before you go flooding our inbox with angry emails, take heart that we’re not idiots. We know that this isn’t a “real” crash test, it was a 100 km/h crash of a USED Commodore in order to test the crash testing equipment at a new test facility in 1992. There was a certain amount of weight in the car, but it was in the footwells and it was used to simulate passengers. Finally, we’re not representing that the Commodore is unsafe or that this is a fair approximation of any real-world safety concerns. It’s just a funny video! Deal with it. If you have questions or want to leave the severed head of a horse in our bed, we’d have to refer you to the posters of the video:
