Falling onto a Giant Water Balloon at 12,500fps - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published on Jul 1, 2018
  • Managed to squeak this upload into the final hours of June to make for a Giant Balloon June video! We've never filmed a giant balloon so slow. We've also never filmed from the roof of the house before. These two things don’t mean this was a good idea. Don't try this at home. You could get an owwie.
    Thanks to Vision Research for lending the Phantom v2640.

    Ever notice how the pop starts because of a localized bubble initiating the pop then it propagates outwards? Test out by having Dan jump on a water balloon with a large flat board that doesn't have splinters or something like that which would pop it and see if him board jumping would have it survive from increasing height

    I don't use sprinklers, I don't really like wasting water. But I said nothing about 6 foot balloons with 100s of litres of water in it.

    you should put the giant balloon on the trampoline and have dan jump on it then, softer landing, and and a potential for some non-newtonian (style) fluid action from the water bouncing back up

    Just an idea if you ever do something like this again.
    Instead of massaging the balloon, you could try putting a lubricant between the tarp and the balloon to help with the balloon stretch more evenly while it's being filled.
