If you’re not following the giant robot wars going on across the world, you’re not paying attention.

The team at the YouTube channel MegaBots Inc creates some awesome robots that they are planning to use to battle another giant robot very soon. Throughout the last year, they made the Mk.III robot, which is 16 feet tall, 10 tons, and worth $2.5 million.

So what does this have to do with knives?

Well, at the start of the year, MegaBots Inc teamed up with Simone Giertz — who is a non-engineer known for making awful robots — to make her infamous chopping machine significantly larger with the help of the Mk.III. Take a look.

Because that wasn’t part of the final design, the team had the leftover 500-pound knife that they decided to drop onto a used Toyota from a crane for laughs.

The results are as you expect but it still brings a tear to the eye.

It’s only fitting that they played the good ol’ Star-Spangled Banner beneath the drop because there’s nothing more American than dropping a massive knife onto a car.

I only hope next time they’ll be able to heat the huge knife up to 1000 degrees, attach it to a robot, and see what kind of damage it can do to a car.
