Check out this incredible video I have for you to watch that centers around an inventive and skilled father and son team who builds giant Transformers statues out of trash. The video comes from Great Big Story and it’s part of their “Passing The Torch” series.
In 2010, Chinese farmer Yu Zhilin and his son Yu Lingyun opened up their own metalworking shop in the country’s Hunan Province. Inspired by the futuristic robots from the movie “Transformers,” the pair began fashioning original statues from scrap metal. Their first design took about a month and a half to build, but they’ve since created an impressive array of statues, giving new life to discarded car parts along the way. It’s not just the success of their new business that makes this father-son duo happy; the craft itself has brought them closer together.
