I think we can all agree that most things look even better in slow-motion. Snowboard tricks, match-winning tennis shots, melted chocolate being drizzled onto a cake, the entire cast of Baywatch, David Beckham’s free-kicks, raindrops hitting a puddle, a 6ft man bursting out of a giant water balloon… wait, sorry, what was that last one again?
If you’re not familiar with The Slow Mo Guys, they’ve basically built up a massive online following in recent years by filming a variety of stuff…in super slow-motion.
Their latest stunt is one of their craziest efforts yet, with professional ‘slow-moer’ Dan gradually being consumed by a huge water balloon until he resembles a low-budget Jabba the Hutt.
Of course, nothing lasts forever and it’s not long before the oversized balloon bursts in the best way possible.
This nutty experiment was actually shot in 4K, which is probably not what the makers of the technology had in mind for it but when the footage is as entertaining as this…who cares?
