  • Now I've got my earplugs.

  • All right, three, two, one, go!

  • Oh!

  • ( theme music playing )

  • - Hello, I'm Gav. - I'm Dan.

  • Welcome to "The Super Slow Show,"

  • There are some steps. To my right you can see

  • a lovely assortment of glass wear

  • and plates and ornaments and things,

  • but all I really see

  • is paintball target practice.

  • Yes. I love smashing stuff.

  • - It's so satisfying. - It is very satisfying.

  • Let's make this a little challenge.

  • The Phantom can record for about five seconds,

  • so we'll each take five seconds

  • with a paintball gun,

  • and see who does the most damage.

  • Each thing could be one point.

  • - Safety off. - Safety's off.

  • - I'll count you in. - Okay.

  • Three, two, one...

  • trigger!

  • Good. That wasn't bad.

  • - Gee. - You sent glass all over.

  • ( laughs )

  • - Gah. - You've actually turned this plate

  • into something, like, someone had a pizza.

  • Just wipe the rest of the sauce on it.

  • All right, Dan, you're off.

  • - Dan: Oh, it bounced off the bottom of he shelf. - Bounced off the shelf.

  • Gav: That was interesting. No points.

  • That put me off because then I thought I was aiming too low obviously.

  • Ah, so, so you thought I'll put another one there.

  • A little lower.

  • That was terrible.

  • Ooh, that was down.

  • Struck on a plate, one point.

  • Ooh, you annihilated the glass.

  • That is the most satisfying thing,

  • is when you hit the top of the glass

  • - and it smashes. - Yeah.

  • Ooh, another smash. Good one.

  • Isn't this so satisfying?

  • I love how satisfying it is when stuff does smash.

  • Oh, you're going over there, another plate.

  • Easy target, another point.

  • Another one on the plate.

  • I wanted the plate to go down.

  • It's the same point. Doesn't count.

  • No, it's every time I hit one.

  • No, it's every time-- every item you hit.

  • Yeah, I hit it twice.

  • You sort of have to go right there.

  • - Dan: Oh, f-- - It was close.

  • That glass is feeling lucky right now.

  • Oh, it was so-- no!

  • How could I miss?

  • Oh, nice, that was a two-for.

  • - Dan: That was a two-for. - Gav: That was two points for that.

  • That was the pizza.

  • Yeah, that's the pizza plate.

  • - Ooh! That was-- - Oh, you smashed it. Wicked.

  • Right at the end of the glass.

  • - Dan: Yeah! - That was nice.

  • - Gav: That was satisfying. - Nailed it.

  • So I got 21 hits?

  • - Uh... - Think you can beat that?

  • Did we set a rule on what gun we have to use?

  • Well, no...

  • Excellent. Let's go.

  • So, Dan, I had the lads working

  • on a little something while were up there.

  • This is the Shelf Painter 6000.

  • Why do they call it the Shelf Painter 6000?

  • Well, Dan, it's because each barrel

  • has 3,000 paint balls in it.

  • Oh!

  • No.

  • - So... - You can't do that.

  • It's budging.

  • - It is bulging. - You can't do that.

  • It was an effort to get them in. Goggles on, Dan.

  • What?

  • - It's gonna annihilate it. - You wanna be over here.

  • You always cheat.

  • I wouldn't say it's cheating.

  • I'd just say it's sort of doing a better job.

  • ( sighs )

  • Gav: All right...

  • Three, two, one, go!

  • Oh, oh...

  • ( laughing )

  • Bloody hell.

  • We were right to get down.

  • Whoa!

  • I got paint on me.

  • So did I.

  • Dan: I got 21 points, right?

  • Gav: Yeah.

  • So that means you got at least 3,000 points,

  • at least.

  • Absolute carnage.

  • Can't believe you cheated again.

  • That's not cheating.

  • How is that cheating?

  • We didn't say what gun we had to use.

  • You can't use that when you go paintballing.

  • All right, I think we should check out the footage

  • and see if I got all the points possible.

  • Happy with that.

  • Completely unfair, but, you know.

  • I'm excited to see this one.

  • I'm kind-- I'm not sure if I'm annoyed

  • or pleased with you.

  • Because it was so...

  • - It was so good. - ...immense.

  • But again you beat me,

  • so it's hard to tell.

  • Just look at that as a shot.

  • It looks like they could be normal sized paintball guns,

  • like really close to the lens.

  • Yeah, the lens is so wide, it's, like, what is the scale?

  • Yeah, lo and behold...

  • ( whispering ) ...they're not normal paintball guns.

  • - Oh... - Gav: The white ones came out first.

  • Dan: Oh, and the-- whoa.

  • Oh, my God.

  • That is a spread.

  • That is a lot going on.

  • Look how high some of them went?

  • I like how they came out in columns,

  • in, like-- sort of like a big caterpillar,

  • but then the air blast at the end

  • flattens it all out into a big pancake.

  • So it comes out in just two walls of paintballs.

  • Yeah, just two distinct waves.

  • Yeah.

  • - Gav: Oh! - Dan: Oh, it's devastation.

  • You wouldn't stand behind that, would you?

  • A lot of them bounced back towards us.

  • Yeah, I got hit by a couple of them.

  • Oh, do you get points for if they bounce back off the back

  • and hit the item again?

  • - Yeah. - Maybe you got more than that many points.

  • Everything is going off the shelf.

  • The stuff that's left

  • looks like it was always painted like that.

  • Yeah.

  • That looked class.

  • Do you remembered when we--

  • we fired the two paintball guns

  • at each other?

  • I do.

  • Yep.

  • So when we did it in your garden,

  • we used normal paintballs about the same distance apart. Right?

  • That we did.

  • Now, with your ridiculous inventions,

  • they're about the same distance.

  • Do you think they'll hit?

  • I think they'll hit.

  • I think they will as well.

  • Okay.

  • Now, I've got my earplugs.

  • All right, three, two, one, go!

  • Oh! Uh, Gah.

  • Absolutely misted.

  • Oh, that was mental.

  • I didn't see anything. I'll be honest with you.

  • I didn't see anything. I saw a misting.

  • One second there was nothing, and there was just...

  • - Everything. - Like, everything.

  • All at once.

  • - Jeez. - I like your invention a lot, by the way.

  • - It's a good one, isn't it? - I really--

  • Even though you absolutely annihilated me,

  • I love your invention.

  • I just-- I just wanna go and watch that.
