Card deck in hydraulic press explodes in super slow-mo

If you like The Slow Mo Guys and The Hydraulic Press Channel, you might enjoy this mashup of a deck of cards getting smooshed at 28,500 fps and 90,000 pounds of force.

The guys traveled to Purdue University with their deck of cards, and it's a good thing they set up a blast shield. It's really interesting to watch the shock waves emanate from the cards when they reach the exploding point.
