"I'm going to get something from the machine, want anything?"
"No but post the video."

At some point you need to understand that every thing you do really isn't that interesting.

But the problem wasn't solved.

That was like Fellowship, no closure.  And hungry dwarves in the background.

So, I guess using a bent coat hanger or shaking the machine were options that didn't occur to the participants.  Business majors, maybe?

So spend $2 to get a free $1 bag of chips?  Is this something they learn about in economics?

That's for sure.

A couple of racoons would have had that whole machine emptied out in 2min flat.

I had a problem this morning.  my shoe was untied.  I figured out if you tie it, it is no longer untied. I will post a video later today......

I would have gotten a Hersheys with the second attempt and try to hit it from the side.

If only the entire A row should be bricks. A1: Brick, A2: Brick, A3: Brick, A4: Brick.

"Hey, the brick is only 25 cents"
"But it'll smash your chips"
"Well, yeah, but at least they'd be down"
"Plus, it's cheaper than another buck for a candy bar. And a brick is 0 calories"

You want the chips on the top row; the higher angle of attack means that they will land further out. The dropping food needs to be further out than the center of gravity to be effective at unbalancing the load.

I'd be more disturbed that there didn't appear to be popcorn loaded into any of the vending rows in the machine...

Except at 0:16 when the Act II popcorn is visible. But I'll forigive you. Act II isn't good popcorn.

Experience has taught me that when faced with this type of situation it's better to slam the machine from the side rather than rocking it forward and back

Worst use of "that's what she said" this month.

We had a hothead at work for a while. The vending machine got the better of him one time so he got his wirecutters and snipped off the cord. Ass.

As an actual former vending machine filler upper.  That doesn't work.  We used to load them so that the big bags of chips would fall and get caught, knowing that some dumba$$ would put more and more money in them to try and beat the system.  Nothing is free.....and all snacks taste better when they experience 3 feet of freefall.

You farker. I also bet it's a requirement to put Butterfinger bars on the top row...

Wait, you had a company policy of setting it up so that customers wouldn't receive the chips they paid for?  That's blatantly illegal.  Guaranteed class action lawsuit.

/this video sucked ass... no problem solving, and there's no such thing as a Fifth World

first world problem: Stop buying unhealthy overpriced crap out of the vending machine.  what a racket that industry is, and very inferior product dispensing.. crap getting stuck since 1880

If that would have worked, it's called 'profit'.

one time my chips got stuck...long story short, failed attempt at shaking it loose, broken glass door and a little embarrassment later those chips tasted pretty damn good

I'll just leave that here...

Amateurs...

All you need to do is lift the front of the machine so it pivots on the rear legs.  About 2 or 3 inches and let that sucker drop.  One or two drops and your good...free popcorn.
