How much stronger does duct tape make everyday objects? INFINITELY. And to test the tape’s strength-adding properties, the fun-loving Youtubers behind the Hydraulic Press Channel have created a video of everyday objects (including cans and plastic bottles, footballs, and a stack of Post-Its) getting crushed both in their natural state, and after being reinforced with duct tape. Wow, is there anything duct tape can’t do? Clearly, whoever invented it is foolish for naming it something as underwhelming as duct tape instead of radical magic wrap.
