Things Exploding Filmed at 2500 Frames Per Second

This video is a treat and a bit of a guilty pleasure. It’s the trailer for the new season of the Danish television show Dumt & Farligt, which translates as “Stupid & Dangerous” in English. In the clip, a variety of mundane and unusual objects, large and small, are smashed, exploded, set ablaze crashed or otherwise destroyed. Each destructive event is shot by a camera at 2500 frames-per-second and played in slow motion, allowing the viewer to see immense detail and movement that’s usually too fast or small for the naked eye to grasp.
