Slow Motion Camera INSIDE Giant 6ft Water Balloon – The Slow Mo Guys

It’s June! Time for a yearly Giant Balloon June video clip. This time Gav challenges Dan to reside in a balloon for a bit while a water evidence lens is shoved inside. Balloon pops, 1000fps, job done.
To sidestep being also known as “the plum who drowned/suffocated inside a balloon”, please do not try this at home unless you have a mate who can get you out.

Slow Motion Camera INSIDE Giant 6ft Water Balloon – The Slow Mo Guys


  1. The Slow Mo Guys

    A lot of comments giving us mad love for being “back in the back yard” as opposed to the YouTube original shows with higher production value. I think we’ll always be back yard boys at heart. We prefer shooting on our own but it is useful having a crew sometimes. For example, Dan couldn’t wear a mic for most of this video and we had no one to hold a boom. But it would have been useful. Instead I had to boost audio from the camera mic or my mic which means the background noise is constantly going up when he speaks which I don’t really like doing. There is certainly a middle ground in terms of production value that we should try and achieve. What is it that you dislike the most about the big YouTube original shows? I’d be curious to know. They are pretty useful for us to do occasionally because it gives us the funds to get better equipment for our regular videos. Let me know your thoughts. – Gav

    EDIT – seems like people feel that the YTOs are more scripted even though none of the episodes have ever had a script. Maybe we need to do a better job and making it feel less scripted by being more comfortable?

    • You probably should have gave him a ? in a sheath and had one handy outside as well.

    • The Slow Mo Guys i dont mind yto at all, they shouldnt be your primary content on the channel but if its once in a while those shows have proven to bring exciting things to film and a lot of opportunities we viewers would have never gotten to see. If the big show production are occasionally it feels like a good and healthy variety of content. And personally i always had the feeling that you come across naturally and yourself in the youtube productions. Dont understand where the feeling of it being scripted comes from

      I don’t mind that you guys do the shows with YT, it meant more frequent videos for a few weeks even though they did feel a little weird sometimes. Then after wards it;s back to the authentic yard videos but at less frequent uploads. It’s nice to have both.

  2. Is it just me, or is the video quality better than normal?

  3. Seeing Dan in the balloon is giving me some serious Death Stranding baby vibes. Am I the only one who thinks he looks like the bb unit or whatever it is?
