Melting Lego With a Torch Is Somehow Utterly Captivating

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Using a magnifying glass to scorch anything unfortunate enough to cross your path on a sunny afternoon is a popular past time among kids. But when you were younger you’d never dream of focusing that solar death ray on your beloved Lego toys. Nor would you today, since the YouTube channel Let’s Melt This has done it for you.

It’s hard to put your finger on what makes this video as satisfying as it is. Maybe it’s the wanton destruction of perfectly fine toys. Maybe it’s that melting Lego looks a lot like the death throws of a marshmallow being toasted over a fire. You probably shouldn’t eat melted Lego, though, in case anyone gets that dumb idea in their head. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]
