ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Slow motion water balloons, sans breakage.
You had to spoil the ending.
It’s funny, but one balloon was simply an object wobbling as it bounced. But as soon as there were two, my mind started to anthropomorphize them, and I imagined they were dancing together.
Needs more Alan Rickman.
No bald guys? Gimmeabreak!
Two things….I bet this is VERY popular in certain parts of Japan, and it also looked like they were floating in Zero-G.
Anyone else have the urge to use their mouse pointer to try and pop the d*mn things, I wanted them to break! :)
Would someone actually re-cut this with the song “Free Falling” (Tom Petty)? That’s what I expected from the video title.
This is balloon porn without the big money shot at the end. :(
Kinda cool, still. :D
well yes, slowmo, but i wish the description would tell me at what frames per seconds and with which camera they shoot the video…
If Romney made the video it would say “four.”
I liked scrubbing the time line with the mouse.. the resulting thumbnails looked very cool.
Portal colors: coincidence?
I love high speed camera shots. Microscopes show us the micro, telescopes large matter, and high speed camera technology allow us to manipulate time. Check out this youtube channel dedicated to high speed camera vids. http://www.youtube.com/user/theslowmoguys
No, really. Biting Pear of Salamanca, on the right. I see it there. Right. There.
I was really getting some anthropomorphism when there were three of them.
“One side, knucklehead!”
“Hey, watch it!”
“Why, I oughtta…”
“Woop woop woop woop!”
