The Slow Mo Guys on YouTube put out by far some of the most interesting content on the Internet. The concept of their channel could be pretty boring, if you think about it! We mean, what's so great about slow motion? Turns out, everything! That's made especially apparent in this video of two sumo wrestlers colliding. See what we're saying? The Slow Mo Guys love to think outside of the box! Forget slow motion videos of bullets coming out of a gun, we want something more outlandish than that! Fortunately, they've got us covered.
The video below features two sumo wrestlers with a combined weight of 1,000 pounds! No, the headline wasn't an exaggeration— no #FakeNews here. Can you imagine the impact from 1,000 pounds of man colliding? Geez, we're just glad we're able to watch from a computer and not up close! The impact alone would make us pass out.
Pretty freakin' awesome, huh? The Slow Mo Guys, Gav and Dan, don't only produce entertaining content, they also explain the technology behind their slow motion process. This video was shot in 1,000 FPS (frames per second) — in layman's terms, that's really slow! To be honest, at one point during the video, we forgot we were watching actual people! The sumo wrestlers started to take on a very jello-like appearance because of all those shockwaves we were able to see!
We'd also like to give Gav and Dan a big shoutout for getting into the ring themselves! It's one thing to film other people doing it, it's a whole other level to test it out yourself. Kudos to quality Internet content, it's rarity nowadays, y'all.
