Watch This Tank Face Off Against A Tennis Star In An Epic Match

This video is why computer animation should be taught in every school in the country. The skill of animating 3D models is so time-consuming and specialized that we just don’t get enough people following their muse and doing something stupid for the fun of it. Filmmaker and visual effects specialist Michael Shanks has followed through on the ridiculous notion of visualizing Novak Djokovic playing tennis against a M1 Abrams tank and the results are pretty spectacular.

Seeing the hulking war machine bat a ball back and forth with the #1 ranked Djokovic would be fun enough in it’s own right, but things get good about halfway through. Suffice it to say that the tank never learned the value of good sportsmanship.
