It’s flame retardant tinsel (which has absolutely no chance of standing up to the mighty red hot nickel ball), which probably explains why the smoke it releases looks so damn toxic. I mean, the smoke is so thick that it looks like it’s a yellow green gray sludge and not actually smoke. Inhaling one puff of that smog’s…
There are few materials in the world stronger or more resilient or tougher than that indestructible Nokia cell phone that everyone had at one point in their life.

The world destroyer that is the red hot nickel ball got put to task on floral foam and the result is an awesome burn through that unleashes so many colors and then creates scales and pretty much topples the entire foam tower. Always a pleasure, red hot nickel ball.
Boom... and nothing. A hockey puck doesn’t break when you freeze it in liquid nitrogen and then smash it with a hammer or drop an 80 pound weight on it. But that’s because hockey pucks are meant for the cold, right!? Well, even if you go the opposite way and try to torch it with the vaunted red hot nickel ball, the…
My favorite foe for the vaunted red hot nickel ball is food items. The bigger and more ridiculous and goofier the food, the better the destruction. Take this burning of a giant jawbreaker, it crushes the exterior and then starts boiling and bubbling the gooey green innards. It's like alien candy blood leaking out.
Remember Gak? The impossibly amazing substance invented by Nickelodeon's mad scientists in the 1990s is still on the market, and it's still incredible. And, as this new video of a red hot nickel ball waging war against the toy seems to illustrate, it looks like Gak is actually invincible.
There's a reason the internet becomes one, big, flaming yule log on Christmas Eve; there's something indescribably soothing in that cleansing, all-consuming blaze. And this flaming Rubik's cube is just like that yule log. If the yule log had spent five years pissing you off.
The red-hot nickel ball is our all-time favorite destroyer of basically anything on the planet, transforming everything from Velveeta to Peeps into sticky, bubbling cauldrons of processed-chemical goo. Now the ball is rolling in the other direction with a liquid nitrogen-cooled nickel ball that's up to all sorts of…
Our favorite destroyer of objects, the red hot nickel ball, is back. This time it's torching artificial sweeteners like Splenda, Sweet N' Low and Truvia. Splenda and Sweet N' Low put up honorable fights but essentially caramelizes. Truvia, however, starts shooting out these weird spider web looking things when burned.
For whatever reason, Easter has become that special time of year when people everywhere gather round to destroy tiny, marshmallow birds in the most demented ways they know how. And so far, it looks like Red Hot Nickel Ball has this year on lockdown.
Everyone's favorite fatally hot nickel ball is back to start the new year off right by finally taking on one of its most requested victims: a good, old-fashioned block of Velveeta cheese, just like mom used to unwrap. Who's ready for queso?
Everyone's favorite Red Hot Nickel Ball has taken on a rogue's gallery of adversaries in its day, with varying levels of success. Now the spherical metal "rock" is taking on its greatest challenger ever: paper.

E-cigs are all the rage with the coolest cyborg-wannabes, but even though there's no real fire involved, the syrup inside those glowing nic-stix is still plenty flammable. And who better to show you than everyone's favorite Red Hot Nickel Ball.
Red hot nickel ball of fire meet your toughest opponent yet: aerogel. In fact, aerogel is such an amazing material and excellent insulator that the eternal flame of the nickel ball does absolutely nothing to it. Like, seriously. It affects the aerogel as much as the normal air around it (or in it too?). But hey. We're…
