This Slingshot Shoots Christmas Trees

Got a spare Christmas tree just sitting there, slowly shedding its needles after its utility has been expended? Nothing embodies the holiday spirit quite like building a giant slingshot that can fire shaved Christmas trees, equipped with a nine-inch nail.

But that’s just what slingshot master Joerg Sprave did and created what he calls “The Santa Slayer.” Sprave quickly delimbs his missile-to-be, leaving only a few branches on top for fletching, and fires with two rubber bands stretched back seven to eight meters. The results, as always, are devastating.

Not satisfied with just blunt devastation, Sprave then drives in a nine-inch-long nail and pierces his target, confirming that you’d definitely not want to be on the receiving end of this thing. You can check out more of Sprave’s insanely awesome and dangerous creations on his channel. [YouTube]
