Charles Bernstrom is today’s Internet hero. Why? Because he grew a 1,465 pound pumpkin and let someone raise it up with a crane and drop it’s big ass straight down on top of a shitty old minivan.
“I think it’s pretty cool, I like destructive stuff,” said one awesome boy, according to the Grand Forks Herald.
Hell, Bernstrom didn’t even do it just for the fun of it like we would have. He did for charity as all the money raised during the event went to a literacy fund. For one dollar those in attendance got a chance to be the one to “pull the trigger” and drop the giant pumpkin from 80 feet up straight down on top of the minivan.
The winner of the raffle? A 2-year-old named Emmett Peterson. Excellent.
Oh yeah, do it again! Do it again!
Next year Bernstrom hopes to grow his pumpkin to 1,700 or 1,800 pounds for even more pumpkin-induced carnage.
