The video depicts gelatinous fleshy objects repeatedly crushed by a hydraulic press. The fake limbs are made from a material called synthetic ballistic gel which is analogous to flesh, so it is usually used for testing the penetrability of bullets into humans. The video is made in collaboration with the popular vlog Hydraulic Press Channel.
