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.

    The sound effect of the balloon super slow splitting reminds me of Ice Age 3 and the glaciers cracking.

    Please do a response challenge with a pro gamer (preferably shroud) I can imagine that their response is really fast. You could maybe do something with guns or other things were you have to respond quickly. Loved the vid btw.

    Have you guys done anything with a Vacuum? I imagine a industrial shop vac and assorted junk getting sucked up into it would look rather interesting.
    Suggested stuff to vacuum:
    Nails, all kinds of colorful candies, A bag of flour, Rainbow sprinkles.

    i was watching your video, and went to go get a bowl of chips. when i took the bowl out, it slipped and crashed against the tiles of my kitchen, shattering into about 100-200 small peices, all the while when i was cleaning it up, i though, how cool would this look in slow motion. you should film glass, porcelin, ceramic bowls smashing against tile, and even wood to see if it makes any difference what you layer your kitchen in.

    You guys should do smoke through powerful lasers. Not super thick but just enough smoke to see it dance in the beams in slow motion. It's probably a challenge to get right but if anyone can do it it's you guys.

    2 things...
    1. Try multiple CDs or Gramophone records and spin them till they give up.
    2. Try wasting a little less water. I've observed in a few videos, that the water keeps running even after the required shot has been recorded.
    Just a thought.
