When The Slow Mo Guys and How Ridiculous got together, they didn’t just crush some heads. After all, if you’ve got a cannon that fires bowling balls at 500 MPH, you want to destroy all the things. With the help of the cannon’s maker, BealsScience, they tested the strength of bulletproof glass and polycarbonate along with a fiberglass-lined safety door.
Awesome How Ridiculous
Gav and Dan of The Slow Mo Guys met up with Brett and Scott from How Ridiculous to see what kind of damage a bowling ball cannon can do. Their subject: ballistic gel heads filled with fake skulls. For something a little less gruesome, enjoy some bowling balls vs. trampolines.
We thought the only way to land a dart on a dartboard was to throw it through the air. This skilled “dartist” shows how it’s possible to place a dart right in the bullseye by tossing it into a vertical loop, where it spins around and hits the bullseye. If you have any doubt this was real, here’s the original How Ridiculous video.
The guys from How Ridiculous aren’t done destroying things in their gigantic blender. This time, there’s even more spectacle as they satisfy the appliance’s voracious appetite with aerosol deodorant cans, a garbage bin filled with dry ice, and glow sticks. They also fed it a combination of hairspray and sparklers, resulting in some impressive fireballs.
The last video we posted from How Ridiculous featured a gigantic blender that made mincemeat of everything from watermelons to tennis balls. Now the Aussies are back to blend a bunch of bigger targets, including a mannequin, a kayak, lawn chairs, and a rowboat. Can anything survive its mighty blade?
How Ridiculous has chopped things with a giant axe and slapped them with a killer fly swatter. Now, they’ve assembled the world’s largest blender. The giant appliance has a terrifying set of serrated blades that spin and kick objects against its polycarbonate walls. Among its victims were a surfboard, 10,000 golf balls, and some normal-size blenders.
The guys from How Ridiculous are always thinking of new ways to break stuff. Their latest method: drop stuff from a 150-foot tall tower and a crane onto sharpened metal spikes. After a few misses, they managed to poke holes in a steel and concrete safe and a junkyard convertible.
The guys from Australia’s How Ridiculous have made their careers out of destroying stuff. They certainly don’t disappoint in this video, as they test how many panes of glass are needed to variousty of objects, including a tomato, a roll of toilet paper, a Rubik’s Cube, and a throwing axe. The slow-motion footage is pretty epic.
How Ridiculous has the coolest destructive toys in the world, including a giant axe they use to chop things in half. In this clip, they dropped the axe on different materials to test their durability. While soft stuff like plastic and silicon cuts easily under its 2-ton weight, can it defeat a dense and strong metal like tungsten?
The guys from How Ridiculous, aka the Destroy Things for the Fun of It Channel, spun up their spinning katana machine for another go. This time they turned its destructive blades loose on everything from a bowling ball to an iPad to a crateful of rubber duckies. The 6000 fps slow-motion footage provides the best look at the carnage.
A while back, How Ridiculous built a helicopter with baseball bat rotor blades. After putting that machine through its paces, they fitted it with metal fly swatters. Now they’ve retrofitted their high-speed spinner with katanas. After a scary incident with a loose blade, they tightened things up and played some Fruit Ninja.
The whole point of a safe is to secure its contents from being accessed without a key or combination. But How Ridiculous reminds us that brute force is an effective safecracking method. You just need a 2-ton axe you can drop on your target. Is there any safe that can stand up to the Aussies’ mighty axe?
The guys from How Ridiculous are back at their 150-foot-tall tower and crane to drop stuff. But instead of just destroying things, they turned it into a game. The objective? The crew must catch as much water from each splashdown as possible. Another game involved keeping water in a container while taking a wild jet boat ride.
How Ridiculous has been having all kinds of fun chopping things in half with their 2-ton axe. This time they turned their attention to see what the giant tool might do when dropped on stacks of the same item. Among this week’s victims are a tower of concrete blocks, a pallet full of fire extinguishers, and cans of spray paint
Taking a break from chopping things in half with their giant axe, the guys from How Ridiculous dusted off another one of their machines of destruction for a follow-up video. This time, they used their spinning fly swatter of death to smack the life out of everything from Jello to eggs to the non-Newtonian fluid known as Oobleck.
After attempting to chop a car in half with their 2-ton axe, the guys from How Ridiculous are back with another round of wanton destruction. This time, they used the massive tool to chop everything from a full beer keg to an enormous rubber band ball. Place your bets now on which items will get fully sliced in two.
The guys from How Ridiculous have yet to run out of ways to destroy things, as proven by their latest bit of industrial machinery. What they built was a motorized rig with two gigantic metal fly swatters attached to it. Once it got up to speed, they dropped various objects into its path to see what kind of damage it could do.
If you mounted a bunch of ceiling fans on their sides and tried to hit a target on the other side of them without hitting any of their spinning blades, chances are you would fail. But the guys from How Ridiculous show us how with enough tries and enough luck, it’s possible to pull off such a feat.
Made from a flexible rubberized material backed with a strong adhesive, Flex Tape is an incredibly durable repair tool. The guys from How Ridiculous put the sturdy and sticky stuff to the test by covering a platform with it, then dropping various objects onto it from a 150-foot-tall tower. But can it survive a wrecking ball?
It’s pretty easy to toss something into a spinning fan and watch it get smashed. But how feasible is it to send an object flying through multiple fan blades and have it emerge from the other end? Leave it to the guys from How Ridiculous to find out.
A while back, the guys from How Ridiculous built a stupidly large hammer for smashing stuff. To kick off their latest round of hammer-induced carnage, they used it to drive a giant nail into the ground. Then they used it to screenprint a bunch of t-shirts, launch some baseballs, play a piano, and crack open an ATM.
In keeping with their name, the guys from How Ridiculous set up a series of fun and challenging obstacle courses, loaded them with balloons, then competed to see who could pop the most while running, tossing darts, driving go-karts, riding on electric skateboards, and piloting R/C cars.
How Ridiculous continues their quest to destroy as much stuff as possible with another one of their competition videos. This time, the guys challenged each other to see how hard they could throw objects at a line of light bulbs to see how many they could take out with a single throw.
