Swim Cap Trick in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published on May 13, 2014
  • Summer is well on the way! With it, Gav and Dan show you how to save time when you bung on your swimming cap. Then, they show you what it looked like in lovely slow motion. Kind of defeats the purpose of doing it fast in the first place, to be honest.

    It would be pretty cool if you were to get an "Aaron's Dragon" and do the hydrogen experiment with it (Fill it with hydrogen... mess around with it a bit, then ignite it!), and film it in slow motion, that would be amazing! Please do it!

    I know this is a 3 year old video, but I just saw this on TruTV's Top Funniest without any credit or proof of permission provided. They have been stealing videos on USclip and showing them on TV, so I don't know if you guys have given permission but if not, some USclip creators should keep an eye open for this...
    The episode is season 2 episode 14, "Funny Fails 2"
