5 Car vs. Cannon Clips

Offbeat

Ka-boom. There's supposed to be a car-shattering ka-boom.

A surprising amount of Americans own cannons. An even more surprising amount of Americans decide to turn said canons on old cars. This awesome form of old world artillery practice is depicted in the clips featured here. These clips expertly capture what it's like to shoot a car with a cannon. Sometimes the result is less awesome than expected, but when these videos deliver, they deliver. Folks who love blowing stuff up (and shooting stuff) are going to want to continue below.

Fair warning: It takes almost two minutes before a car is blown up by a cannon in this clip. That being said, the wait is well worth it, as the cannon does to the car exactly what you would expect a cannon to do to a car.

If you love guns, then you will absolutely love this short video. The unlucky auto in this video is shot with a machine gun and numerous assault rifles before being shredded with a Civil War-era cannon.

This video is short and straight to the point. It also features what is perhaps the most satisfying encounter between a car and a cannon ball ever.

Surprisingly, the whole cannon ball hitting car thing isn't the most awesome part of this clip. No, that honor belongs to the actual firing of the cannon itself. That poor Monte Carlo never stood a chance.

RatedRR proves once and for all that a Saturn isn't able to stand up to a shot from a cannon ball. The YouTube star, in a promotional stunt for "Assassin's Creed III," shoots a cannon ball through both the side panel and engine block.
