The Strength of Glass

Does anyone have any favourite clips showing glass being put to the strength test?

Here is a short clip of James May from Top Gear dropping a mini onto a piece of Pilkington Planar™ Structural glass.

Although it is annoying if companys make such offensive ad for themselfs from a troll-ad-account, it is still impressive.

Must be much more costly compared to normal glass though..

Certainly not a troll ad account I can assure you but this is what Pilkington do - Glass, and are always interested to see if others have anything they like to share.

I actually don't get involved in the pricing so can't really comment on that I'm afraid.

Still, it is very doubtfull whether spamming internetforums isn't contraproductive. On one hand I've seen your brand name now, so in this sense it is succesful advertisement. On the other hand however I relate it primarely to 'being insignificant enough to pay guys to post on internet forums where maybe 200 people max will see it'.

I can't imagine - for example - Saint Gobain doing such a thing...
