We were approached by our director of marketing to create a video showing how strong our new Rip-Stop cover really was. After racking our brains, we came up with a great idea. Let’s shoot potatoes at over 300 MPH at this thing! The only problem with this idea was “how do we get it to stand up by itself so the grill doesn’t stop the potato from going through?”
The Attack Plan
I remembered that we have a pvc frame we use to simulate a grill when we photograph our covers. It was perfect (as long as it didn’t explode on contact of course.) So, with potatoes, a PVC frame, and a cannon that shoots potatoes into orbit we were set to start shooting (video and spuds.) Wanna see what happened? Watch the video below. Oh yeah…we also threw some rocks in with the potato for good measure.
Let’s Add A Grill Into The Mix
To make this a bit more authentic, we decided that we would put the cover on an actual grill and remove the doors so the potato had somewhere to go. Check out what happened:

After launching potatoes at an actual grill, we realized that we dented the grill badly in a few places when our aim was a little off. Only one thing left to do…might as well shoot the grill to demonstrate how powerful this cannon really is.
