Stupid Things in Super Slow Motion

There’s a Danish TV show called “Dumt & Farligt” in which two guys are given a house and the task of doing stupid and dangerous things that come to mind. In addition to recording the experiments in real time, the show decided to also use a Phantom Flex high speed camera to capturing everything at 2,500 frames per second. The video above provides a slow motion look at things ranging from setting off large fireworks indoors to microwaving a bottle of red wine.

    Awesome stuff! What’s the deal with candle+flour??? I might have to try that one ;-)

    For the non Danes out there, the show (Stupid & Dangerous) it’s a couple guys and a house, and they have medical and emergency personnel there so they can do those things that labels says you shouldn’t (And more) one of them actually got very lucky some time ago, he was almost killed because of something that went wrong, but I guess that’s why you need stuntmen and emergency crews to do the stuff instructions says you can’t..

    As the flour drops it gives off flour dust which spreads wider than the power. The dust ignites.

    Yup. Long, long time ago, on a TV show called “Truth or Consequences,” a guy was dressed as a firecracker, and his wife was supposed to light him with a sparkler, when the hosts dumped a 25-pound bag of flour on them.  The resulting powder explosion caused them third-degree burns.  They sued the show, of course.
