This $50,000 gold bar is crushed with ease by a hydraulic press

A hydraulic press YouTube channel has taken crushing things to the next level with their latest video.

Crushit has flattened a 24 carat $50,000 (£30,000) gold bar and it is just as satisfying to watch as you would imagine.

Gold is a soft metal which is why the hydraulic press makes the metal look like playdough.
