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.

    If you watch at 0.25x speed, and double tap spacebar to unpause and pause as quickly as you can, you can see a single frame with a little orange blur in the normal camera segments :)

    Not that it was very likely, BUT...if Dan had actually managed to get himself killed in Afghanistan. That would of been the worst thing to ever happen to the internet for all time. It would never be the same, life itself would never be the same.
