People love celebrating their unborn child's genitals with extravagant gender reveals, and this one might just take the blue and pink cake. First, there was the fireworks gender reveal. Then there was the hair dye gender reveal. But all pale in comparison to this super impressive and very complex Rube Goldberg Machine gender reveal.

Check it out!

The Rube Goldberg machine was built by Taylor Calmus of the Dude Dad Vlog to reveal the gender of his second child with his wife Heidi. According to The Huffington Post, the multi-story contraption took Calmus three days and "a lot of duck tape" to make.

Calmus was inspired to go through with the over-the-top gender reveal after a doctor accidently ruined the surprise of their son's sex during Heidi's first pregnancy.

"When my wife, [Heidi], was pregnant with our son, Theo, we weren’t going to find out the gender until he was born," Calmus told The Huffington Post. "But the doctor slipped up and told us two weeks before he was born and ruined the surprise. So this time when she got pregnant I was like, 'No way are we waiting again!' But anyone that watches our vlog knows I like to go all out!"

So if you are thinking of running to the bakery to buy some pink and blue cupcakes, STEP IT UP. Or, you know, just chill out, because gender is just a construct anyway.
