The Devastating Effects of Home Alone Booby Traps

Home Alone is an absolute Christmas classic, but have you ever watched and wondered what damage those booby traps would do to a person in real life? Well, Jake Roper from the YouTube channel Vsauce3 put it to the test, setting up the hand-burning hot doorknob, a swinging paint can to the face, and the effects of being smashed in the chest with a crowbar.

Turns out that Kevin's doorknob trick would have done absolutely nothing, as the heat transfer between the two sides of the knob is just not going to happen, but his paint can stunt would have been pretty gory, practically ripping the robber's head from his shoulders.

Watch the video above to find out what damage the crowbar did.
