    I remember a similar thing that penn and teller done years ago, where an articulated lorry went over them. It used some type of foam on one of the wheels. Maybe the centre of that roller is similar somehow.

    Yes it is I have seen this done before and explained how, the wheel has foam on the bit that supposed to crush the person it sort of surrounds the body a bit like those beds you always see on shopping tv

    The blankets cover the fact that there could be any distortion in the wheel shape due to the foam going over a body or object

    They also used one hell of a lot of ballast in the form of weights on the other side of the lorry, that of course you didn't see on camera until they replayed the footage from the side you couldn't see.
