  • Hello, I'm Gav. I'm Dan. We're the Slow Mo Guys

  • I'm cringing slightly because Dan

  • has a katana sword at my throat level

  • I actually use this to shave

  • Even just joking about that makes me cringe

  • because I know immensely sharp that is

  • you can see the point just disappear into nothingness

  • were going to slice up some water bottles

  • you always see those compilations of satisfying things especially in GIF form

  • and one of them is just slicing through water bottles with a katana

  • yeah I mean i'm sure this is sharp enough

  • it depends on my skill whether I can actually get all through those bottles

  • how would you rate your skills as a swordsman

  • not the best I mean you don't really learn it in the army

  • unless your in the cavalry or an officer or something

  • here's your katana sword off on the horse yeah yeah off you go

  • alright lets get to the slicing and the dicing

  • filming this on the Phantom Flex 4K thousand fames per second

  • i'v got a long trigger cable so I can be over there

  • just in case Dan lets go of the sword or

  • or its cheap and it just slides out the hilp who knows

  • do you want goggles or anything

  • what in case i get sword in the eye somehow

  • just looking out for you B

  • how many do you think i'll get through in my first swing because i'v never done this before

  • I think you'll go like "fffuh" and get like six

  • you're absolutely right

  • I got through like four and messed it up

  • I'm so bad at this

  • I just saw water go all over the Phantom Oh no

  • probably should move it back a bit

  • your face

  • I'm just concentrating too much

  • It got deflected so perfectly

  • that it just caught this one bottle here

  • right on the lid and made a little leaky hole

  • you couldn't have done that if you tried

  • imagine that 'open this bottle for me' taghhh ' thank you'

  • ok were reducing the amount to

  • a measly ten

  • its not the blades fault

  • because its just going straight through them

  • as your blade hits at this angle

  • it just drives that angle like whatever slight angle you have is just amplified when you go through

  • it has to be pitch perfect

  • where it hits and how it hits

  • to go through all of them

  • if I'm just even slightly off the angle its completely gone

  • Its very difficult

  • flipin' heck

  • goodness me

  • got no idea how many I got through there

  • think it was about seven

  • 7 that's my record so far that's not bad

  • ready to go G

  • right I'm going to hold the sword at a slight

  • downward angle so that when I swing its going to just

  • be level instead of going up

  • you ready

  • feels weird holding it like that

  • here we go

  • way better

  • way better I think you have found your calling

  • it went through like butter

  • they're all a very similar height too

  • look this just popped off

  • what held it there

  • It was just holding water

  • so wait you chopped that and it fell and landed

  • with water inside

  • I didn't even realize it had water in it

  • so you angled it slightly down

  • which doesn't fit naturally in my hands

  • it fits slightly wrong

  • oh my lord every bottle still has water in the top

  • that was perfect

  • I didn't knock anything at all it went straight through

  • some of the bottles barely moved

  • this one landed with water inside of it

  • it looks like the bottle has somehow been trapped

  • in the table

  • its like Willy Wonkas bottle like x-men'd into the table

  • before we move onto coloured ones Daniel

  • now that you'v discovered your true

  • calling in life

  • why don't we just put the rest of the bottles up and see how many you can get through yeah

  • ok so last time it was ten

  • i'm going to cover the entire table and see what happens

  • sixteen

  • its an extra six

  • its a little bit more pressure

  • we also switched the camera to 4K

  • because I want to see the lovely resolution on this one little bit faster

  • no pressure then no pressure

  • where do I even aim

  • oh god where do I aim

  • looks like you went up again

  • looks like you got one more than last time

  • I think we have found that it was a fluke maybe

  • agh

  • what

  • come here B what is it

  • I think I know what happened here

  • I can see where you went wrong

  • you took a chunk of the table out

  • I was like i'm sure that would work again

  • go back rewind it

  • this is the problem I was looking at that

  • the last bottle because I was like

  • that's where i'v got to swing too

  • to be fair the fact you hit the table then eleven bottles

  • that's impressive to me

  • I feel like the technique definitely worked there

  • It's just I hit the table first

  • where's this bit of missing table

  • I just sliced it clean off

  • that was our favorite table Dan

  • no the jankey table

  • should we try and glue it back together again

  • well if we can find the little chunk

  • here it is

  • lets get that back

  • aw

  • I cant believe I hit the table

  • what a mug

  • ok the colors are ready

  • better prepare for a sticky mess on this one

  • well do it

  • we'll do it twice will go wide then tight

  • lower on the close up

  • yeah

  • what a colorful fizzy sticky mess

  • i just put this lense on too

  • oh no has it gotten caked

  • the house is covered in red juice

  • definitely went up again then

  • how can you tell

  • no idea

  • I wanted to just leave them completely where they were

  • but because of the pop they kind of bang and explode

  • so it just goes everywhere

  • we'll get a closer up now

  • yes

  • nailed it

  • nailed it

  • felt so much better

  • sorry B

  • jeez

  • that's how you get ants

  • every video that goes by the resale value of this goes down

  • Its like tainting a place

  • you know the slow mo guys just taint it

  • Its cool how the empty space clouds up

  • as they are breached

  • its amazing how much brighter it gets

  • like this is quite a dark image

  • you can see on the histogram as soon as it hits

  • all the light goes up

  • is it because the water is reflecting the light

  • the fizz is just making the liquid lighter than it was

  • and also you have the sun glistening through it

  • do you like my little pan there

  • I figured most of the action was going to go to the right

  • can't believe I actually managed to get through all those bottles

  • and it was so much easier when i angled it right

  • It just felt like butter or nothing

  • my faverite shot is the shard of table just flying off

  • too hard too many bottles

  • very satisfying footage

  • I can see that perfect one being turned into a GIF

  • Its nice to look at and i dont know why

  • and someones going to end it just before it goes through the last one

  • unsatisfied
