The Vegetable Dirigible

At least once in your life, you should smash a zucchini (3.4MB AVI).

  1. This video is particularly entertaining if you note the subject fleeing in fear from the landing-zone after the zucchini is tossed.

  2. Mmm, info-tainment. Besides impressing upon us yet again the power of gravitational force, this audiovisual presentation/experiment also gives one an entirely new perspective on the many uses of zucchini.

    Having had problems viewing the video at first with Windows Media Player, I was only able to listen to the audio; it was just as hilarious as the accompanying footage. Bravo to Isaac for the excellent cinematography.

    I’d give it two thumbs up, but I’m using them to type this sentence.

  3. I understand the agricultural division of the Company of Crows Inc. is developing bigger and uglier zucchini for further spectacles. [Company of Crows Inc. grows with vessey’s seeds, by the way.]

    By the way, zucchini is a diminutive: at this size, I understand, the proper Italian is “zuca”. Maybe we need that zuca launching device after all…to launch a zuca invasion of the Walmart parking lot. They do look like alien pods.

  4. Thanks for the compliment, but how the hell did you know it was me behind the camera?

    I would like to also point out, video quality/focus is not the greatest, as it was taken with a digital (still) camera, not a video camera.

  5. I will be “entertaining” my fellow co-workers with flying (err….falling) veggies this afternoon…landing zone~just outside our office front door!

  6. but how the hell did you know it was me behind the camera?

    From the clip: “Are you ready Issac?, Yeah go ahead its recording” 🙂

  7. well said Mr DesRoches! (just for next time, and there will probably be a next time, its isAac)

    i FINALLY got this downloaded to view – the suspense was killing me. and i must say, those of us in Australia, as well as other parts of the world, i’m sure, can’t wait to see what’s next.

    good to see you aren’t working too hard.

  8. Al, I’m sure that you are well on your way to achieving success with this innovative, and necessary, technology (those silverorange guys are SOOO cutting edge), but might I suggest incorporating the stationary bike as a power source?

    Best of luck, as always.

  9. Currently, the innovations department is still planning Steve as the primary power source. The bike might be next gen thinking – sooooo Mel.
