Surprisingly Captivating GoPro Vid Reveals What Goes On Inside Your Dishwasher

Three million, four hundred and sixty four thousand, eighty four. That’s how many times what might be considered the most mundane GoPro video ever shot has been watched.

So, you might ask, what does this obviously captivating video show? What has enticed almost 3.5 million clicks of that play button over the course of a month and a half? It was a peek inside your standard dishwasher.

It is one of the strangest uses we’ve seen a GoPro put to, and a bit reminiscent of Conan O’Brien’s ‘Complete Waste of a GoPro‘ segment, but don’t knock it until you see it.

It is, if nothing else, surprisingly captivating. By putting a Hero 3, a few well-placed lights and (obviously) a few dishes through a full wash cycle, and then condensing it down into about four and a half minutes of footage, YouTube user Bito has solved on one of the great childhood mysteries.

We eagerly await the sequel, in which Bito mounts a GoPro in the fridge and then, insert suspenseful pause here, closes the door.

    Well, maybe not a fridge, but a laundry machine could be interesting. Especially in VR.

  • silvr

    this appliance is happy to meet you.

  • Michael Turcotte

    This was done years ago with a regular camcorder. Nothing new to see. Looks like the inside of a GE.

  • superduckz

    I was going to write a sarcastic comment that someone will be along in a few minutes to say that “it’s already been done” but I see I’m already too late.

    The things I want to say, I cannot say.

  • pgb0517

    Wait, this dishwasher doesn’t have an upper-rack rotating spray arm. I want my money back!

  • Thomas Kryton

    Very Zen like, similar to watching an aquarium or the fire log channel. And, as others have posted been done a number of times. They used to have dishwashers with clear plastic panels mounted on them in the department stores so you could watch them work first person. I guess this beats going to Sears and pulling up a chair.

  • Lambert Schlumpf

    I fast forwarded big time.

  • arkhunter

    Remember when Sears stores had a working clear sided demo dishwasher as a display?

  • Matt

    What is funny is that someone posted a comment on the Conan page saying they wanted to put one in a dishwasher, 5 months a go. Is it the same person…

  • David Guerra

    It is very nicely illuminated.

  • Larissa

    You can just look through the laundry machine window….

  • Mike

    If it’s dark it might miss a spot

    That would be smart!

  • amiright

    I’m still wondering why this is being covered here on Petapixel. Not everything that gets GoPro’d or videotaped or photographed has to be.
