Sophie tries to break this Volvo dump truck

In North America, Volvo is known for its slick-looking, safety-focused cars and crossovers, but around the world, they also sell heavy-duty construction vehicles like the FMX (short for foward-control medium extreme) truck.

In an effort to demonstrate the FMX's durability, Volvo kitted one out with remote controls, handed the controller to an adorably mischievous-looking four-year-old named Sophie, and turned her and the truck loose on a closed course to see if she could break the thing. Naturally, the truck kept going – this is a marketing ploy, after all – but it's still a fun way to kill two-and-a-half minutes on a Friday afternoon.
