Here’s an exploding watermelon in super slow-motion

In case you aren’t familiar with them, the Slow Mo Guys basically do exactly what you’d think. They record stuff in super slow-motion, usually while it’s exploding, and upload their incredible footage to YouTube.

The GIF up top comes from a video in which they shot BB pellets through some old safety glasses on a watermelon. After that they put a pig’s eye into a hole in the watermelon and tried to shoot that.

When neither of those things gave them particularly compelling footage, they just blew up the watermelon with a huge firecracker — and voila. The resulting video, shot at 2,500 frames per second, is pretty incredible.
