Huge pumpkin dropped onto parked car

It's almost Halloween and there are loads of huge pumpkins being carved into lanterns - but one man in Minnesota in the American mid-west has dropped a giant pumpkin from a great height to see how it splatters.

The 180 kilogram fruit from a crane 30 metres up onto an old car that was parked below.

Dozens watched and cheered as it crashed down.

There were strict safety rules in place so no one got hurt.
