Sophie tries to break this Volvo dump truck

Volvo FMX Sophie

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.

As a child, Chris spent much of his time playing with toy cars in his parents’ basement; when his mother would tell him to go play outside, he made car sounds while riding his bicycle or dug roads for his toys in the flower garden. Now he gets to indulge his obsession playing with real cars that make their own cool noises, and gets paid for it.
