There are a lot of stupid videos on You Tube. This video — posted last week — may be one of them. But there’s something amusing, if not amazing, about this one.
Maybe it’s the cutting tool and watching the power revealed in a jet of water.
Maybe it’s the crazy superhero Flow Man and his amazing leap as he leaves the scene of the crime.
Maybe its the promise that this won’t be the last we’ll see of these oddly attractive characters and this lingering question: “Can water cut it?” I wonder if we can look forward to a day in this new video series when we’ll see something that water cannot cut.
As an aside, if you are interested in the technology, there are links on the Web site Can Water Cut It? to more serious videos. What we have here, after all, is probably a less-than-elaborate advertisement for Flow water jets.
