You see the words “G-SHOCK WATCH VS TRAIN CHALLENGE!!! DO NOT REPEAT!!!” and immediately know you’ve arrived in that corner of YouTube, one that you’re telling yourself to escape but can’t help but delve deeper into.


You know even the world’s toughest watch is no match for a speeding freight train; this much is obvious. But that doesn’t stop you from clicking, waiting for the money shot, the exact moment thousands of watch fragments are sent spinning into the grass verge. Somehow still shocked by just how obliterated the watch is, you realise the video is part of a series, and then half an hour disappears.


So, without further ado, behold G-Shock vs. Train.
