Wonder what would happen if they dumped the water on a person. Before seeing the video I would have volunteered to try it, now I'm not so sure.

Go try it! There is a reason why it's bad to fall into water from very high up. It might be soft when moving through it at low speeds, but hitting it at higher speeds is like hitting a solid. Much the same reason it hurts like hell to belly flop or slap the surface of a pool. A bucket full of water that size, probably your average swimming pool or more, is for sure going to **** up anythings day.

That aside, that is quite impressive. If I wash my car that way I will tell him to do it from only a few feet and dump it slowly.

When you remember that 1L of water=1kilogram, a bucket that size holds what - say 1000L? That's 1 Tonne!!!!! Dropped from 10m onto a stationary object. That's gonna do some damage.

Quite a bit more than 1000L, maybe more like 20,000L-30,000L. That bucket holds at LEAST 5,000 gallons.
