Slow Motion Footage of 150 Mouse Traps Going Off in a Chain Reaction

Thanks to The Slow Mo Guys, we get to start off the weekend with something cool, albeit not all that related to photography per se (if you want that, check out this in-depth star photography tutorial we published just a couple of posts back).

What the Phantom Flex-toting duo decided to film this week was slow motion footage of 150 mousetraps going off in a chain reaction, just like you used to see in the cartoons. After meticulously (and nervously) setting up all of the traps, Dan bites the bullet and slams his hands down on the table. What lasted about a second turns into a minute of mesmerizingly painful footage.

Enjoy, and don’t try this at home… or at the very least don’t blame us if you do.
