Popping water balloons in front of a slow motion camera is old news. People have been doing that for years now, and while it’s interesting, it has been done to death. Popping a six foot water balloon, on the other hand, is something new. After some trial and error, The Slow Mo Guys managed to do just that and the results are strange and wonderful. The video below shows their failures and eventual success in glorious slow motion. Watching the balloon ripple as they jump on it is strangely hypnotic, but don’t take my word for it, watch the video for yourself.
