  • - Hello, I'm Gav. - I'm Dan.

  • Welcome to "The Super Slow Show."

  • Today, we're at our super slow pool.

  • Look at how crisp it is.

  • - Very nice. - Very deep too.

  • ( rolling r's) Crisp. ( laughs )

  • Remember those back flop videos we did?

  • Yes.

  • ( sighs )

  • ( splash )

  • - Ow! - ( laughs )

  • ( screams )

  • We'll try belly flops today.

  • - Okay. - But, with a difference.

  • Instead we've got, like, a fork lift truck.

  • We got a big ruler here that goes up to 15 feet.

  • I mean, I've jumped from 15 feet,

  • but I don't know if I can intentionally belly flop

  • from 15 feet because that's gonna kill.

  • - Your brain may not let you. - Oh. ( sharp exhale ).

  • Today, we're doing something we've never done on this channel.

  • We got a Phantom under water.

  • Under water slow-mo looks lush.

  • So, even though Dan is a big pasty fleshy mess,

  • it still should look good.

  • - Excuse me? - What? Nothing.

  • Oh! Why are you wearing those?

  • - What? - I got-- we had these.

  • Yeah, but, I've got to limber up, these are my--

  • We can't show that.

  • These are a more streamlined look.

  • That's more aerodynamic, but--

  • - ( exhales ) - But we have to-- to budget now.

  • We gotta increase the budget to blur that out.

  • These are-- these are tight.

  • I feel like, the forklift might have been a waste of money.

  • -( laughter ) - Well, look all right.

  • I don't remember the last time I intentionally belly flopped.

  • I don't remember how much it's gonna hurt.

  • - Okay. - All right, and it might look good enough

  • - from this height. - Okay, yeah.

  • - So. - There might be no need for me to go for 15 feet.

  • Maybe not. You're in total control on this one.

  • - All right. I'll warm up as it were. - Okay.

  • - Ready? - I have to remember how to belly flop now.

  • Your mind will tell you no.

  • So, I guess I just starfish, right?

  • But your body will tell you yes.

  • Okay.

  • ( chuckles )

  • Oh, man, I'm nervous already.

  • - Ready? - Yeah.

  • - ( screams ) - ( splash )

  • Uh, it stings so much already.

  • Your little yelp.

  • ( screams )

  • Gav: Here we go, from one foot up.

  • ( scoffs, laughs )

  • Dan: I just wanted to test the water, literally.

  • Gav: Literally test the water.

  • Dan: Literally test the water.

  • That's just a really bad dive.

  • Gav: Yeah, you just really front flopped.

  • Dan: That's the sort of dive that someone at the pool would go,

  • "Ooh, that looked like it hurt a bit."

  • - Yeah. - But that was a bit of a poor dive.

  • So, how did that one hurt, was that painful?

  • - Oh, it hurt, yeah. - Yeah?

  • I mean, a belly flop hurts, right?

  • ( water splashing )

  • ( rewinding sound )

  • - Gav: Ooh, hands. - Dan: Oh, that looks wicked.

  • Look at how cool it looks under water. Ah.

  • Gav: You're actually just dragging down a big pocket of air and then--

  • - Dan: That's really cool. - Gav: And then it all seals back up.

  • - That was from this high. - Yeah.

  • So, what are your thoughts? How are you feeling?

  • Let's just bring it to ten and get it over with, all right?

  • ( laughs )

  • - Bring her up. - This is why I love working with Dan.

  • Bugger me.

  • Bugger me!

  • There's no way someone's gonna belly flop from that height.

  • That's mental.

  • People belly flop from-- well, accidentally

  • usually from a lot higher.

  • What if I, like, get winded, and it, like, kills me.

  • I will fish you out.

  • ( laughter )

  • There's a net somewhere.

  • You'll send my remains home, yeah?

  • I'll be repatriated.

  • - ( laughter ) - Yeah?

  • - That's good to know. - Yeah.

  • - This is so dumb. - ( laughs )

  • - Oh. - Dan: This is so dumb.

  • It is. It really hurt.

  • And I appreciate all the effort and work

  • you put into this channel.

  • - Bloody well better do. - ( laughs )

  • Bugger.

  • This is the hardest thing I've had to do, I think.

  • - In the whole channel's history? - Dan: Yeah.

  • Just think about how much it's gonna hurt.

  • All right, sorry about this.

  • I'm literally wasting thousands of--

  • but, you know, hours of people's time in total here.

  • Just standing at ten feet above.

  • There's a guy under water there like,

  • "Just get on with it, mate."

  • It's all right, you gotta psyche yourself up anyway.

  • All right.

  • Oh, ( bleep )!

  • - ( splash ) - ( laughter )

  • - Oh! ( laughs ) - Ah!

  • - ( bleep ) - Come over here.

  • Oh, God.

  • You absolutely soaked me.

  • Hang on. ( sharp exhale )

  • - Did it wind ya? - ( sharp exhale )

  • I think my tongues fell off.

  • That was abso-- to my eye, looked absolutely flat.

  • You're right.

  • That really hurt.

  • Did it feel good? Exhilarating?

  • - Huh? - Exhilarating?

  • - No, not exhilarating. - ( laughs )

  • - ( sharp exhale ) - ( laughs )

  • Are you glad it's over?

  • Is it over?

  • Let's have a look at the footage.

  • Gav: Dan, let me ask you a question.

  • What were you thinking...

  • here?

  • Dan: I think I said it out loud.

  • - ( laughs ) - But you can't show it on this show

  • because it's a family show.

  • - Both: Oh! - Dan: Oh, man. It hurts again now.

  • Gav: The splash was colossal.

  • - Dan: That is a big splash. - Gav: It went, it covered me

  • Dan: I barely went a foot in the pool.

  • Gav: Well, yeah. It's the equivalent of pulling a parachute.

  • Look at the splash there. It's gone huge.

  • - ( Dan groans ) - ( Gav chuckles )

  • ( Dan moans )

  • Gav: You are dragging so much air down.

  • Dan: Look at that. Oh, man.

  • I do actually get quite deep.

  • Gav: That looks so surreal, doesn't it?

  • That looks so cool, I just--

  • I love watching water in slow-mo.

  • This underwater camera is really cool.

  • I wanna see what some other landing types look like.

  • We're at max height at the fork lift.

  • I'm probably gonna do a front flip

  • over rotate and just belly flop again.

  • I'd watch it. ( laughs )

  • - Dan: Yeah. - Yeah.

  • All right, okay. This is a bit more nerve wracking.

  • 'cause I've never done a flip from this height.

  • ( chuckles )

  • I don't know what I'm doing.

  • No, I've never a front flip before in a pool like this.

  • Okay, ready?

  • Three, two, one.

  • ( splash )

  • That's quite graceful, actually.

  • My bum hurts.

  • Ow! Oh-ho-ho!

  • You'll give yourself another enema.

  • - Yeah. - ( Gav laughs )

  • Right up the butt.

  • God.

  • If there was anything up there, it's compacted now.

  • Oh, God.

  • - Gav: Oh. Good rotashe. - Dan: Thank you.

  • ( laughter )

  • It looks like I'm in zero gravity, though, doesn't it?
