Awesome Slow Motion

Giant Water Balloon Shower

Giant Water Balloon Shower

The Slow Mo Guys wrap up their “giant balloon June” feature with Dan being totally drenched by an overfilled water balloon as it’s popped above him lying beneath a trampoline. We’re just glad the video wasn’t titled “Man Crushed by Giant Water Balloon.”

Submerged in a Water Balloon

Submerged in a Water Balloon

The Slow Mo Guys follow up an earlier video in which Dan managed to get everything but his head inside a giant water balloon. This time, he managed to get all the way inside of it before popping it in front of their high speed Phantom Flex 4K camera at 1000 fps.

Cutting Tools in Slow-mo

Cutting Tools in Slow-mo

Need something chill on your screen today? Drop by the Ingersoll Cutting Tools channel on YouTube, and tune in to some of their awesome and relaxing high-speed macro footage of more than 70 of their drill bits, cutting wheels, and other tools doing their jobs.

LEGO Porsche Crash Test

LEGO Porsche Crash Test

One of the cooler LEGO Technic kits out there is the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It’s simply stunning. But that didn’t stop the guys from c’t Magazine from taking theirs and smashing it into a wall, with the help of the German automotive safety group ADAC and their crash test facility.

Bowling in Slow-motion

Bowling in Slow-motion

When The Slow Mo Guys team up with Blue Man Group, you know they’re going to make a mess of epic proportions. That’s exactly what they did in this extended length video, as they used bowling balls to wreak as much havoc as possible in front of a high-speed camera.

Man vs. Mousetraps in Slo-Mo

Man vs. Mousetraps in Slo-Mo

The Slow-Mo Guys set up one of their more ridiculous stunts yet, packing a trampoline with 1000 fully-armed mousetraps, then Dan jumped into the middle of them. As painful as you’d think it might have been, The Backyard Scientist’s rig would have hurt much more.

Ink in Motion

Ink in Motion

Macro Room’s latest video sees them submerging a variety of objects into a tank of water and then injecting ink, creating otherworldly images for split-seconds. The montage at the end is one of the sickest things we’ve ever seen.

Air Pistol Pellets in Slow Motion

Air Pistol Pellets in Slow Motion

The Slow Mo Guys filmed air pistol pellets being shot through deodorant sticks. The projectile is so fast, even viewing it at 120,000fps isn’t that satisfying. But at least we found out that you can both be invincible at airsoft and smell good with just one thick vest.

Model Rocket Engine Slow-Mo

Model Rocket Engine Slow-Mo

After building a car engine we could see inside of, Warped Perception split some model rocket engines down the middle and sealed them under plexiglas so we can watch them ignite. We think an acrylic tube would burn more accurately, but it’s still awesome to watch.

Crimping Some Balls

Crimping Some Balls

After discovering the hydraulic crimping machines at Lillbacka Powerco, the guys from Beyond the Press decided to subject a whole bunch of balls to the deadly force of one of these impressive machines. The rubber band ball was particularly satisfying.

Drone with a Blade

Drone with a Blade

Master of destruction Giaco Whatever teamed up with master of drone Mr. Steele, and attached a razor-sharp blade to one of his quadcopters. Steele then flew the deadly beast straight at some fruits and veggies. It slices, it dices. It even makes julienne fries!

Model Rockets in Slow Motion

Model Rockets in Slow Motion

The Slow Mo Guys filmed 6ft tall paper rockets made by a group of students at Purdue University. The rockets were fueled by solid propellants, just like missiles and boosters. They soar faster than the speed of sound, albeit for only a few seconds.

Mousetrap vs. Hot Dog

Mousetrap vs. Hot Dog

It’s just an inanimate object, but there’s something about the shape and fleshy consistency of this frankfurter being snapped in twain by a mousetrap that will make you cringe. Warped Perception captured the carnage at up to 147,000 fps to drag out the pain.

Snowpiercer IRL

Snowpiercer IRL

You’ve just trudged through a foot of snow to get to the train so you can head to work. But the blizzard is far from over. Nick Colvin captured this awesome slow-mo footage of a commuter train covering passengers with a deluge of the white stuff as it pulls into the station.

Molten Copper in Slow Mo

Molten Copper in Slow Mo

One of the few self-illuminating materials to find its way in front of The Slow Mo Guys‘ lens is this liquid copper being poured at more than 1200ºF. We’re sure glad they didn’t splash any on their schmancy high-speed camera.

Exploding Batteries in Slow-Mo

Exploding Batteries in Slow-Mo

The Slow-Mo Guys ignore all the warning labels on a bunch of small lithium batteries, exposing them to fire, and turning them into tiny rocket ships and bombs in front of their Phantom high-speed camera. We can only imagine how nasty large batteries would be if they blew up.

Razor Spinner Top vs Butane

Razor Spinner Top vs Butane

Giaco Whatever’s razor-edged spinning top is already deadly enough – now he’s taken aim at a variety of new objects to shred – from making some egg salad, to getting toothpaste out of the tube, to blowing up butane-filled lighters. In other news, Barbie got a new hairstyle.

Slow-Mo Airbag Paint Explosion

Slow-Mo Airbag Paint Explosion

A few years ago The Slow Mo Guys gave us a close look at airbags’ explosive deployment mechanism. But here they used the life-saving device to spray lots of powdered paint. They’d be mad if they don’t add this to their channel trailer.

Arc Welding in Slow Motion

Arc Welding in Slow Motion

Most video footage you see of welding just looks like a blinding light and some sparks. mrbean022387 added an appropriate soundtrack to Vurt Runner’s super-macro footage of gas metal arc welding as a tiny pool of molten metal burbles and coalesces.

Over-inflating Footballs in Slow Mo

Over-inflating Footballs in Slow Mo

With the big game coming up, The Slow Mo Guys remind us of the football on their side of the pond. They used an air compressor to quickly over-inflate a pigskin and a soccer ball and filmed the resulting carnage at high speed.

Red Hot Rocket Knife

Red Hot Rocket Knife

The Backyard Scientist adds a propane torch to his sweet rocket sled knife so he can heat the knife’s blade to over 1000ºF before launching it towards its inanimate victims at the end of the track. It didn’t stay glowing hot, but slow-mo rocket sled destruction is still fun to watch.

Snapping Steel in Slow-Mo

Snapping Steel in Slow-Mo

Reinforced steel beams are incredibly strong, but the guys at Purdue University have a machine that can actually rip them apart. The Slow Mo Guys turned their high-speed camera towards the carnage for our entertainment pleasure. The suspense was killing us.

Engine Combustion in Slow-motion

Engine Combustion in Slow-motion

Warped Perception built a custom transparent acrylic head for a four-stroke engine so we can see what internal combustion looks like as it happens. He fed the engine with different types of fuel then captured the results in slow-motion. Amazing stuff.

Sven Helbig: Abendglühen

Sven Helbig: Abendglühen

Director Sebastian Linda’s video for Sven Helbig’s ethereal track Abendglühen (Evening Glow) bends time as its subjects seemingly defy gravity through the use of slow-motion and other visual trickery. From the album I Eat the Sun and Drink the Rain.

Rocket Sled Knife

Rocket Sled Knife

Fans of Mythbusters will immediately recall the havoc they wreaked whenever they placed objects at the end of New Mexico Tech’s rocket sled track. The Backyard Scientist decided to build his own miniature version and loaded it up with a knife, slicing various things in twain.

100MPH RC Car in Slow Motion

100MPH RC Car in Slow Motion

Traxxas gave The Slow Mo Guys its award-winning XO-1, a remote-controlled car that goes 100mph out of the box. Gav and Dan did what the folks who actually bought the $800 non-toy would never do: give it a thorough wrecking.
