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

  • Published on Jun 24, 2019
  • 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.

    A lot of comments giving us mad love for being “back in the back yard” as opposed to the RUclip 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 RUclip 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?

      I think it's about the realness of it, that just 2 life long friends are able to mutter about and have fun with their weird cool ideas. While also being determined to do better!

      I love both types. I love the big production ones because you can do so much more elaborate stuff. But i love these because its just 2 guys messing around getting great videos.

      I feel like the backyard is more cozy feeling, and tones the video for a nicer atmosphere

      I found the youtube originals to just not be as creative as the backyard ones.

    The backyard makes me feel like im just hanging out there with you guys, much easier to watch somehow, and the last balloon was awesome. I've never seen anyone do anything like this, kind of odd, but made a really cool video.

    Idea! Put Dan in an air filled balloon, once inside, slip in an empty balloon fill it with water, he works his way into that and puts on the scuba mask. A clutch of smaller water balloons can be inserted into the air balloon around Dan. Boom! And then. Bloosh! Mike drop
