YouTubber Vsauce3 recreated some of the Home Alone booby traps to see if an average human-being could physically survive the mayhem that Kevin McCallister inflicts on The Wet Bandits (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern).
With the help of a ballistics dummy, Vsauce3 recreated the famous hot doorknob, paint-can to the head, and the crowbar to the chest scenes and guess what? You’re only walking away from 1 of those. The paint-can and crowbar would literally kill you, hence ruining your Christmas.
It still amazes audiences today that the Wet Bandits would be able to survive all those traps. But a cheap aluminum shovel swung by a 70 year old man knocks them out cold? Only in Hollywood.
