Mid-air Paintball Collisions in Slow Mo - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published on Aug 28, 2017
  • Watching two very fast moving objects smack together at high speeds is very satisfying to watch. That's the main reason Gav and Dan made this video.
    Don't try without goggles and that. Be safe. Be slow.
