A Toilet Paper Skateboard Has Finally Been Created

2017 is upon us, and perhaps now the world is finally ready for a skateboard that was created almost entirely from toilet paper. It’s not exactly the intended purpose of the material, but the toilet paper skateboard exists, and it apparently took the power of a hydraulic press to become a reality.

Via The Awesomer, the Hydraulic Press Channel‘s Lauri and Anni Vuohensilta posted a video about the creation of the toilet paper skateboard on their Beyond the Press channel. We’ve posted the video above, but it may test your sanity to see the nearly eight-and-a-half-minutes of edited footage that chronicles the couple’s attempts to press the toilet paper into something that resembles the shape of a skateboard. It took a ridiculous amount of effort and a whole lot of toilet paper to complete. But they proved that it is possible, even though Lauri Vuohensilta readily admitted that he’s not a skater.

Near the end of the video, Lauri Vuohensilta briefly demonstrated the finished skateboard (which has real skateboard wheels), much to the bewilderment of the couple’s cats. Vuohensilta added that this project was only done to submit it to the YouTube channel, Braille Skateboarding for the “You Make It We Skate It” video series. While it’s unknown if the board has already been sent, the Braille Skateboarding team left the following comment under the original video: “If you want to send this in we’re down to skate it! Awesome board!”
