Why on EARTH didn't we think of this? The footage below sees one man take an American Civil War-era cannon and fire it through a Saturn while filming it in slow motion.

We've always though cannons looked a bit, well, rubbish as agents of destruction. This, however, does a rather splendid job of proving otherwise - the cannonball passes through the engine block, dash console, seats and boot of the poorly Saturn before charging into the distance.

Now watch.
