If you’ve moved past the video about what happens when you microwave things you shouldn’t, you’re ready for this compilation video of more diverse, extreme and just plain stupid stunts with food- all filmed in super slow motion. Aptly titled “Stupidity Captured at 2,500 Frames per Second,” it’s from “Dumt & Farligt,” a Danish TV show.
The six minute video focuses mostly on various ways of making food explode: with a baseball bat, a lawn mower, fireworks, a chainsaw, a bullet and more. My personal favorite is the dropping of the flour over the candle, creating a mini-inferno, but the simplicity of stuffing fireworks into a birthday cake has its appeal as well.
There are some non-food stunts, such as “lighter + candle + bullet,” and even one that approaches something useful (but not really) – using fireworks to turn a clothes drying rack.
Shot with a Phantom Flex digital high-speed camera, according to This Is Colossal, ”Stupidity” is without a doubt the ultimate “do not try this at home” video. But it sure is a lot of fun to watch.
