Mesmerizing Video of a Washing Machine Destruction

I'm not sure why I felt so uncomfortable while watching this video. Perhaps it was due to the somewhat human face of the washing machine. I couldn't look away as it slowly destroyed itself, at times proud, at times scared. The machines are alive I tell ya.
