    To view with less compression, select 4K even if you don't have a 4K screen. You'll get a higher bit rate. Slow mo pro-tip. - Gav

    If you could do the same but spin the camera as you down that would be cool, spin the opposite way of the water

    I recommend not touching the metal part of the plug when you put it in.

    As a vegan, the globby, mucous-y milk at around 07:53 makes me feel physically nauseous. ‘Tis cow juice indeed.

    tea and milk seems so strange to me, sugar and lemon please.

  • teqqqie
    teqqqie 25 days ago

    Do this but have the blender on so that you can see the sugar cube break apart. I think that'd be cool

    MILK..... IN ….. TEA ? no sugar? that's not bitter a.f? just drink coffee!
    find Cajun boiled peanuts, and sweet iced tea, hold the milk. (no lemon)
    you're welcome.

    I really liked how the mixer started to pull the vortex down in the cup! If that could be the focus next time that could make a really wicked video!

    When the lens dipped into the tea following the sugar cube I felt like I was the second sugar cube falling in and it was some kind of satisfying that I was not expecting...

    Food companies should 100% hire you guys for their commercials! Also, what kind of camera company thinks it's a good idea to make F-14 the widest aperture?! Good grief.

    Anyone else notice how you can watch the video not just in 4K but in 8K?

  • Johnny The Time Block

    Is it just me, or did the green vortex look like a portal from Rick and Morty?

  • Aléxios Akhilleusz

    Just an idea, would it be interesting if you slow motion recorded a juice maker slice through the fruits, like watermelon or orange.
