Slow Mo Katana Sword - 4K - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published on Nov 14, 2017
  • Has Dan ever used a Katana in his life? No. Has he ever been trained the way of the Samurai? No. Will it stop him from making a slow mo Katana video? Hell no.
    Many plastic bottles were harmed in the making of this video. But hey, they are terrible for the environment!
