Painting with Bullets in Slow Motion

– Hello, I’m Gav.
– I’m Dan. We’re The Slow Mo Guys, and this week on
“The Super Slow Show”– Dan, is that danger
I smell in the air? Probably not.
I had eggs for lunch. But this week
is all about weapons.So we’ve got bear traps,
a catapult,
and we’re gonna be painting
with guns.
Gav:Ooh.( theme music playing )As you may know,
we’ve made various art pieces using various tools,
never a paint brush. We’ve used hand tools,
power tools, ourselves. – Explosions.
– Yeah, yeah, yeah. When I say “art”– it’s art,
most of it’s crap, but have we ever made art with one of these? Don’t think we have. So what we’re gonna do, we’re gonna hang
our art supplies above these canvases
or “canvi.” – Is that how it is, yeah?
– Which isn’t a word,
I don’t think. And our paintbrush of choice will be one of these. Yeah, this has to be
one of the most elaborate setups for a painting
I’ve ever seen,
to be honest. It’s a whole trellis thing. This is really–
I don’t know what it is. We’ll be growing plants
up it later. – All right.
– Okay. Because it involves bullets,
we’ll need a higher frame rate.We’ve got a V25.11
off to the side,
Panaflex 4K up the front.Let’s get firing. – With my one hand.
– With one hand. Cheek a bit of turquoise,
first spray paint can? You know what?
Just from this position here, I can tell that this is already
my favorite way to paint. Before we’ve even started, I’m already like,
this is the best way. As always, we’ve made sure
it’s very safe. There’s no one
behind this canvas. That would be insanity. – All right, you ready?
– Yeah. – I’m plugging up.
– ‘Kay. Safety’s off. Ooh. ( laughs )
Did it only just land? It looked like you halved it. What even happened? It was there one second,
and then it was just gone. I’ve got no idea
how that happened. – I love how just
the top sat there.
– The lid. Yeah. That was a– – Yeah, it was a nice
smattering, actually.
– Yeah. ( gun fires ) Gav:Oh, there’s
the bullet. Oh.
Like it’s nothing.Dan:
I’ve chopped these spray paint
cans in half with an ax before,
and they just sort of burst
perfectly in half, but the bullet caused
a lot more overpressure
inside the can, which meant that
the can’s pieces flew way further. Yeah. ( gun fires )Boing. Gav:
Wait, is that a spark?
– Dan:It is.
– Gav:I think it’s a sparkjust ’cause
of the metal friction.
Dan:It just chinks and then it
comes out the other side,
and that’s going really
quickly, though, that bullet.
It’s why it’s scary,
a very satisfying shot.
Super fast.I feel like now the spray paint is obviously
going to be taken – by the wind.
– Yeah. Think we should escalate
to just thick paint pots? You wanna gauze
some thick paint on it? – Absolutely gauze it.
– All right. Okay, next up
we’ve got four paint cans. That spray paint can landed
all the way over there, so there’s literally no reason
for me to sit here. We’ve got a barrier now. And I’m just gonna shoot off. Yeah, I think that’s
a good idea. Take care of it? – Yep.
– Sweet. Gav:
Whah! – That looks lovely.
– That looks great. That looks deluxe.
If that was up there, that would be–
that would be cream. I think we know exactly
what we’ve got to do. – Go on.
– This– well,
this looks good. – Tons of this.
– Yeah? Maybe some paint balloons. And right above the thing. – Actually on the canvas
this time.
– On the canvas. So we get the nice painting, but on the floor. Yeah, that was a practice,
but a great one. Let’s look at some of this. – Ooh.
– It’s annihilated the– Oh, that’s quite the exit wound. That’s pretty hefty,
isn’t it? ( gun fires ) – Dan:Wow.
Even though we’reat a thousand frames a second,the bullets
are still invisible
on this camera.Dan:
Blink of an eye.
I like the that the lid
of the pot gets burst off. Yeah, actually it bends
and warps the metal like that. – Dan:Ooh.
That’s such a tiny
entrance hole.
It’s almost like
there’s a charge inside
popping the lids off.
Yeah.But it’s just pressure
from the bullet.
It’s strange to think
that tiny, little hole
can cause that.
Just bleeding blue paint.– Oh.
– That is way more violent
than the other one. Look at that one burst. Why is that?
Where’d I even hit that? Look at the way that lid
is trailing all that paint. Dan:Whoa, that was quick,
that one.
Gav:Okay, that one–
it looked like the bullet
went in the front,
immediately took a right turn,
and went out the side.That’s so weird. Yeah.
Let’s see that again.
The exit hole is right next
to the entrance hole.
– Dan:I think–
– ( laughing ) Gav:Oh, man.I think I hit the red oneslightly on the side,which caused it to spin more.You know, um… saw that
we had a shotgun. Yeah. Oh, you– shall I– All right, let’s go. – Blimey.
– Look at what I did there. You hit this can, like,
30 times. Look at all the big holes. I think I got the balloon
in the same shot as well. I’m not really sure, but… The idea was to get as many
things as I could in one shot.( laughs )
Whoa, flip.
Look at the flippin’ canvas
at the back as well, taking it.
That looks absolutely perfect.
You got a couple
of blues there.
The pattern of bird shot
was much–
– Gav:It’s a tight grouping–
– Much tighter than I though.
I thought it’d be like this. I thought it’d have about,
you know, at least half a foot, but it really just knocked
the yellow paint can, but didn’t actually burst it. –You see how the yellow
paint can’s been hit?

– Gav:Yeah.Didn’t actually burst it.
It just bounced off it.
It went straight
for the balloon instead.
It gave it a right wallop.
It did. I tried to get both,but, you know…Well, let’s take a look
at our slower angle.( together )
Oh, whoa!
– Dan:Gah, wow.
That’s wicked.So, there’s a lot to talk
about there.
– Wait.
– A lot of them didn’t make it
through the rubberand got flung back in.
Do you see that?
– Dan:That’s unbelievable.
Let’s see that again.‘Cause they’re
such tiny balls,
there’s lots of them,
it looks like,
in this bird shot,
’cause it’s bird shot.
They lose their power…
like that. Let’s see that frame-by-frame
on the impact there. –There’s a lot there.
– Dan:It’s a big group.There’s gotta be, like,
80 or something.
Look, it didn’t pop
the balloon.
The balloon hasn’t even
popped at this point.
it hasn’t, like–It’s just riddled.That’s a fascinating shot.I’ve never seen that.Look at those ballsgoing in the balloon
stretching the balloon out.
At this point the balloon’s
already burst
and wants to reassert itself,
but, look.
That is such
a strange moment in time.
Look at
They’re on the edge of, like,
the ball…
“Let me out of the balloon.
Let me out.”
That is so much cooler than
what I thought was going on.
That’s the one
I hit square on and
just annihilated.
It popped the top
and then it moved.
Yeah.( gun fires )Oh, look at that.
Look at that.
Right all over the lens.And now we can’t see anything.Think we’re gonna
need a wipe. Here we go. Oh, a few streaks from the–
( laughs ) Can’t see. Ah, ooh. Ahh. I think we got, like,
a little bit of lettering. We got “low.” Or “slow.” You know, I wasn’t a massive fan
of art at school, but I think the way we do art, I could really take it up
as a hobby. Yeah, if art class
was like this, I would… I’d do art every day. I’d love it.
That’d be brilliant. Very proud of that.
Very proud. Hopefully you enjoyed

Are you signing it? Oh, yeah.
That’s… ( muttering ) Hi, guys, we can’t wait

adventure with you. Yeah, click here

    Some hundred years later this will most likely be viewed as a master piece in “modern times”

  • Rudy Yuan

    Wait, how did these guys get their hands on an MR556 in the UK?

  • dee avansel

    so relaxing

  • Zombie Goddess

    at 7:52 and 8:00 you hear a bit of a splashing noise and it sound like the sound from minecraft when you place a sand block 😮

  • TheDrj199

    god i miss fps Russia

    catapults? the trebuchet is capable of throwing a 90kg projectile up to 300 meters and is clearly the superior siege engine

  • Crossfire20

    It is just so satisfying to watch art being done with a gun

  • Darren Palmer

    Love the humility y’all have, for example “hope y’all enjoyed the video”?
    Of course we enjoyed the video!
    We always enjoy them, how could we not?!

    I just got a Christmas ad in the beginning of november

    Dan's a good shot!!!

    The American way to paint.

    On a scale of 1 to 10, how unoriginal was that joke, do you think?
    I think it's somewhere past human numbers.

  • Dan King

    Dan looked genuinely offended when Gav said "we'll be growing plants up it later" with the trellis at the start.

  • DasGamming

    Slomo guys should record bullets exploding out of guns and try explosions underwater

  • FunkyPlayz

    I hate the new sound it makes every time you like a comment :/

  • take sushi

    Right if only art class is like that 😂

  • Satans Boy

    1:15 weird flex but ok

  • Joshua

    You guys don't even know how hard it is to get a genuine HK416…yet you're rocking one here

  • Philip Webb

    The green and blue area reminds me of Monet. Wonder if that's how he did it.

  • melonemann

    That will be your quote for rhe year 6:56 because they are so tiny balls, they got stuck in the rubber

  • Hannah Clere

    shot gun art

  • Nicolas Krolling

    Look how casual he shoots all of them

  • Shadowwolf 930

    this is how Americans paint

  • Austin Dyer

    4:08 – So it gets pushed in the opposite direction to the bullet impact due to the explosive nature of the exit. You mean there wasn't a second shooter on a grassy knoll?

  • Jack C

    Oh yeah yeah

  • ICantThinkOfAUsername

    Reminds me of that one scene in Gravity

  • Some dude

    Please do a collaboration with Demolitionranch it would be the most epic vid I'd ever seen!

  • Ge 458

    His aim tho

  • Anu K

    Are you going to sell it to an art gallery?

  • kieran O'dea

    The energy of the bullet causes a hydro static shock. Basically the liquid is nearly instantly super pressurized and the lid blows off.

  • Connor Clemmons

    Those lids popping on those paint cans were not caused by the bullets simply going through. Unopened paint cans are under pressure, hence why there’s a hiss when you open them for the first time. When the bullet enters and leaves it removes the pressure from the can (which is why the exit holes are so big) and causes a sort of vacuum. This vacuum may actually be the cause of the lid popping off because the cam is sucking in on it’s self almost when you pop a bag of chips by squeezing.

  • Taylor Wedow

    That bird shot into the balloon is one of the coolest shots I've seen from you guys in a while. Really top notch!

  • the entire thang

    Use something less scary next time im not trying to be greeted by this school desimater

  • Neal Miskin

    You should sell prints of this artwork.

    That is the most ‘MERICA titles of all time

  • Tom Berrafato

    I want to see more!!! make more paintings with guns! You should try to hit the sides of the spray paint cans.

  • sir smoss

    It’s really werid to see Dan have a gun


    that's an HK416 (or, at least what I think.)

  • The Blue Dude!

    make video on shooting shotgun differnt ammo

  • Peter Smusi

    8:30 now you can sell it for 50 thousand dollars

  • SpamReciever420

    >custom AR with a free floating M-LOK handrail, trijicon ACOG, magpul short foregrip.
    Without knowing the Bolt Carrier or receiver specs, that rifle has to cost over $2,000
    The Trijicon itself is over $1,200

  • 4akat

    this is the sort of channel that is just going to get more important as time goes on

  • just another nobody

    6:52 ATTACK!!!

  • Im Bad In Gaming

  • zeph playz

    The gun is real?

  • Korona Urufu

    Do the birdshot again but aim it in the air so the paint will instead of dropping it will float onto it.
    With the paint spray put some fans up to blow it into the canvas with the slow mo guys as you do it then take it off when it's dried-up.

  • NTZombieSlayer 204

    what about recording a bullet get mushed when it hits something.

  • Coffee First

    This is actually how I paint lol


    Ok dan I see you with that ACOG

    It's nice to see that Youtube didn't stop them from including a gun focused video in their sponsored show

  • Tim Simulations

    You guys can make really good slow mo videos.

  • James Dotson

    The Hippocracy of YouTube. We get demonitized for making a video with guns, but they sponsor videos with, that's right, guns.

  • NoVeD

    Art class is like this in America

  • An Idiot

    Aka, American painting on a Saturday

    Most American version of Leonardo Da Vinci I've ever seen

    هل تريدون معاونا

  • WyomingBiking

    I like how Gav puts in ear buds to reduce noise even though the gun has a suppressor

  • HeineousFish

    Watch how the canvas at the back waves

  • Christopher Mann

    Should've used full power .223 or 5.56 ammo instead of subsonic to be quiet, it would have been a lot more reactive with that AR

  • Jehoshaphat Asher

    Dan can shoot like wow!

  • Edward Millership

    We didn’t use paint, but we did string up paint cans on the range and used 9 mill SMG’s. Well we did until the range warden turn up and ripped us all a new one… 😜

  • Matthew Dean

    He's a bloody good shot.

  • The 7th Dimension

    It's weird but I actually prefer these guys when they are just working by themselves in the backyard.

  • tigertank909

    redo this but with every gun on earth

  • Celestina aka ClonaClox9999

    I think that only applies if the word ends with us. Cacti, Nuclei, Octopi, etc

  • Mikestion

    Dan has some good aim, with one hand and all.

  • Ankit Maurya

    one like for shotgun and balloon, wish i had more likes to give👍

  • Eric Welp
