THE BEST Destruction

Shattering a Record in Slow-Mo

Shattering a Record in Slow-Mo

A while back, The Slow Mo Guys spun a CD so fast that it shattered into thousands of pieces, resulting in a spectacular sight. Now they’re back to capture the same by spinning some vinyl records up to speed. We wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of that shrapnel.

The Wormmaker 5,000,000 Part 2

Lauri and Anni of the Hydraulic Press Channel couldn’t let one of their best tools gather dust for too long. This time they used their spaghetti-slash-worm-making press tool to smush Stretch Armstrong, burning candles, squishy toys, and other random stuff. Hungry for more?

(PG-13: Language) The Hydraulic Press Channel presents a satisfying video featuring their latest industrial press tool – a metal container with holes perforated in its top, turning squishy stuff into worm shapes. For some reason, we’re reminded of the Play-Doh Fuzzy Pumper Barber Shop.

Moving Van vs Overpass Slow-mo

Moving Van vs Overpass Slow-mo

With the help of stunt driver Kyle Weishaar, The Slow Mo Guys decided to replicate a common accident – a too-tall truck running into a too-short overpass, and captured all the carnage in gory slow motion detail. When the sheet metal hits at speed, it looks like rippling cloth.

Paintball Shotguns in Slow-Mo

Paintball Shotguns in Slow-Mo

Gav and Dan toy about with a duo of custom-built rigs which can fire thousands of paintballs at a time, like pellets from a shotgun. They make a horrible mess, and look awesome in slow motion – especially that color mixing face-to-face shot at the end.

Slow-mo Paint Blast

Slow-mo Paint Blast

The Slow Mo Guys subjected themselves to a massive blast of paint, transforming the outlines of their bodies into a work of modern art. The 4K footage is quite spectacular as the colorful paints spray out and mix together on the way towards their intended targets.

4-Blade Card Cutting

4-Blade Card Cutting

(PG-13: language) After wowing us with some epic card cutting action, the Hydraulic Press Channel doubled down and doubled the number of cutting blades on its Guillotine 5,000,000 – so now the playing cards go flying in all directions.

How to Cut a Deck of Cards

How to Cut a Deck of Cards

Thanks to their new cutting blade aka the “Guillotine 5,000,000,” the Hydraulic Press Channel can now not only crush stuff, but cut it in half. Slicing sticky notes isn’t too thrilling, but the way it hacks through 10 decks of cards is the big payoff. And here we go…

Splitting Bullets in 4K Slow-mo

Splitting Bullets in 4K Slow-mo

For their latest experiment, The Slow Mo Guys perfectly lined up an axe with the barrel of a gun, and fired a bullet at it so we could see what it looks like slowed down. It’s cool, but it’s the custom two-way axe they built that produces truly satisfying results.

Slow Motion Ball Drop

Slow Motion Ball Drop

For the latest episode of The Super Slow Show, Gav and Dan simply dropped a bunch of objects from a crane, and captured them hitting the ground in super slow motion. Come for the flood of exploding water balloons, stay for the 10,000 bouncy balls.

Hydraulic Punch Channel

Hydraulic Punch Channel

The Hydraulic Press Channel adds a new tool to their arsenal – a round press bit with a sharpened edge, turning their 150-ton hydraulic press into the world’s largest hole punch. Now we just need two more of these, a huge stack of paper, and a really big three-ring binder.

Flaming Death Star

Flaming Death Star

It must have taken Ben Ahles an ungodly amount of time to glue together 42,000 matches into a sphere, yet it took only seconds for the ball to burst into flames, and about a minute to come to rest as a blackened hull. Still, his efforts were well worth the visual payoff.

Never Stand Behind a Jet Engine

Never Stand Behind a Jet Engine

It’s unlikely that you’ll ever stand this close to the back of a jet engine, but if you ever do, it’s a really, really bad idea. The Hacksmith set up a human analog bust to show us the Raiders of the Lost Ark flesh melting that would happen if you got too close. Gooey bits at 9:45.

The Super Slow Show

The Slow Mo Guys kicked off a new 12-part YouTube Originals series with a bigger budget than their standard backyard set offers them. The first few episodes are live now, including a look at what it’s like to run through a wall or a pane of glass in slow-motion.

Pneumatic Needle Gun vs Stuff

Pneumatic Needle Gun vs Stuff

The Beyond the Press channel is always on the hunt for ways to destroy things that don’t involve using their famed hydraulic press. Here they punish a bunch of stuff with a pneumatic needle gun, a device that looks like a deep tissue massager for masochists.

Stop Motion Kitchen Demolition

Stop Motion Kitchen Demolition

Frank Howarth isn’t just an expert at making things, he’s also proven his filmmaking chops. In this video, he created an elaborate and playful stop-motion short film of his kitchen demolition project – from removing the plates and dishes, to stripping the place bare.

Wrecking Ball Super Slow-Mo

Wrecking Ball Super Slow-Mo

To help promote the new season of The Grand Tour, The Slow Mo Guys got their hands on massive 4-ton wrecking ball, and turned it on a brick wall, then a selection of vehicles while they captured the carnage with a duo of Phantom high-speed cameras.

Destroying a Super Star Destroyer

Destroying a Super Star Destroyer

David Windestal and his pals love to destroy stuff with their insane rocket sled. Recently, they went through the trouble of building a replica of the now-discontinued 3152 piece LEGO Super Star Destroyer, and launching it down the rail with spectacular results.

Watered Tree vs. Dry Tree

Watered Tree vs. Dry Tree

We’ve always heard that it’s important to keep your Christmas tree watered, as it’s a safety risk. If you had any doubt why, just watch this brief video from the NIST to see exactly why watering could save your life. A watered tree also drops fewer needles for you to step on.

Learning to Saber a Champagne Bottle

Learning to Saber a Champagne Bottle

Mike Boyd recently passed a milestone: 500,000 YouTube subscribers. To celebrate, he figured he’d learn how to lop off the top of a champagne bottle with a saber. It’s surprisingly easy to figure out, but you should still practice before trying it on expensive champagne.

Crash Testing Kids Toys

The guys at Switzerland’s Dynamic Test Center perform crash testing on vehicles to help gauge and improve their safety. For the holidays, they gave their crash test dummies the day off and presented them with some toys to play with. Then they took them away and smashed them.

Exploding Ball Bearings in Slow-mo

Exploding Ball Bearings in Slow-mo

For as much as we enjoy the Hydraulic Press Channel, we always thought they could use a better slow-mo camera. This time, they got their hands on a Phantom V2512 high speed camera thanks to Neverthink.tv, and captured the explosive result of crushing a ball bearing.

100 Speed Bump Simulation

100 Speed Bump Simulation

BeamNG.drive is an automotive physics simulator that behaves quite realistically. In this satisfying clip from DestructionNation, watch what happens when cars, trucks, and SUVs are subjected to 100 speed bumps in a row without any effort made to slow down.

Rocket Knife Nighttime Chaos

Rocket Knife Nighttime Chaos

David Windestal has been entertaining us for a while with his rocket knife-powered destructive antics for a while. This time he and his pals pulled out all the stops, with a nighttime run with LEDs, sparklers, spray paints, and an enormous fireball… all to create modern art.

Will It Steamroll?

Will It Steamroll?

The guys from novelty gift shop Vat19 had nothing better to do, so they decided to take some random items from their inventory and run them over with a steamroller. We want to see them smoosh one of those inflatable dinosaur costumes.

Rocket Knife vs. Water Balloon

Rocket Knife vs. Water Balloon

There’s absolutely zero doubt that a giant water balloon will succumb to David Windestal’s rocket-powered knife in an instant, but it’s the beautiful slow-motion footage of the watery carnage that’s the reason to tune in for this short video clip.
