Slow Motion Camera INSIDE Giant 6ft Water Balloon - The Slow Mo Guys
It's June! Time for an annual Giant Balloon June video. This time Gav challenges Dan to live in a balloon for a bit while a water proof lens is shoved inside. Balloon pops, 1000fps, job done.
To avoid being known as "the plum who drowned/suffocated inside a balloon", please don't try this at home unless you have a mate who can get you out.

Slow Motion Camera INSIDE Giant 6ft Water Balloon - The Slow Mo Guys

    A lot of comments giving us mad love for being “back in the back yard” as opposed to the FIshows original shows with higher production value. I think we’ll always be back yard boys at heart. We prefer shooting on our own but it is useful having a crew sometimes. For example, Dan couldn’t wear a mic for most of this video and we had no one to hold a boom. But it would have been useful. Instead I had to boost audio from the camera mic or my mic which means the background noise is constantly going up when he speaks which I don’t really like doing. There is certainly a middle ground in terms of production value that we should try and achieve. What is it that you dislike the most about the big FIshows original shows? I’d be curious to know. They are pretty useful for us to do occasionally because it gives us the funds to get better equipment for our regular videos. Let me know your thoughts. - Gav EDIT - seems like people feel that the YTOs are more scripted even though none of the episodes have ever had a script. Maybe we need to do a better job and making it feel less scripted by being more comfortable?

      Can you please do an invert balloon explosion? Like air filled balloon, put the balloon inside water, stick the probe lens in and burst the balloon. And record the water filling the air. Beautiful


      Dan is shirtless... It's almost 12 am... Good times good times ☞ ̄ᴥ ̄☞

      It feels like you're overthinking it. If you want to know what fans (dis)like, maybe better run a survey? But don't mistake opinions of the few commenters to be universal. I for one quite liked YTO and think the show needs to evolve from backyard boys to smth more professional. Also look at Top Gear as an example - their specials were fully scripted, but viewers still thought the three blokes were fooling around on their own.

    Woah guys. Never ever try and breath through a snorkle that long. It is too long to allow carbon dioxide to escape when breathing out, so you will run out of oxygen pretty fast... keep that in mind next time you guys do something like this. It's very dangerous.

  • foxabilo

    There is a reason snorkels are the length they are, if you make them any longer the % of each breath that ends up stuck in the tube increases with length until you end up recycling the same breath over and over and the % of oxygen goes down until you get hypoxia and die. This is staggeringly dangerous and need to have a note added to the start to warn people of the danger.
