Do you like watching everyday objects get wrecked? Cool. So does Lauri Vuohensilta, a Finnish factory owner who became a YouTube sensation by following his heart. He and his wife, Anni, run the Hydraulic Press Channel, a beautiful corner of the internet where objects big and small meet their doom in the form of compressive force. The couple began uploading in October of 2015 -- now, they're 1.7 million subscribers strong.

If you're not a Hydraulic Press devotee yet, these impressive acts of total destruction should get you hooked.
