excavator builds lego dump truck

We’ve seen plenty examples of equipment operators showing off their skills through interesting demonstrations, but this one from Finland might be our favorite.

In the video below, the operator, whom the Daily Mail identifies as Juha-Pekka Peramaki, puts together a dump truck made of LEGOs, complete with hard-hat-wearing driver. There’s some pretty impressive precise movement involved and the whole thing looks like it was shot in one take. At the end, the video zooms out to show Peramak’s perspective and just how small the blocks were from his vantage point. The procedure looks like it took a while but the footage has been sped up for viewing.
