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.

    Fluorescent lights in slow motion? That might be mildly interesting given they've got what? a 60Hz pulse rate?

    If you manage to build a plexiglass floor and put your camera down there (so you can film from under the ballon), I think it would be a sick shot

    Dan may have been in the military but I’m positive he’s been in more danger in these videos than anything there.

    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.

    You need to get liquid nitrogen into a 1L soda plastic bottle and put it into a big bucket and cover it in ball pit balls. You probably won't see this but it won't stop me from asking for this experiment

    Maybe having a water filled one in a pool because it would float but when it pops the break in the balloon would cause an underwater ripple
