    So when is Dan gonna move Texas and work with Roosterteeth Officially? He would be an awesome addition to the crew and would like to see what kind of RTLife videos he'd make with the others.

    This is definitely one of my favourite Slow Mo Guys videos since with the music its very relaxing to watch and quite beautiful. I love this content since it helps us to perceive every day actions smoothly and easily that humans would normally glance over without a second notice. This is why The Slow Mo Guys are unique in their own right (as well as having such awesome people presenting and explaining science and technology which before was unknown to me i.e. Inside a Camera at 10,000fps). Thank you for this content and I look forward to much more content in the foreseeable future! smiley0.gif

    I'd love an animated wall paper of the multiple color blast or the blue blast that came after.

    This. This. It is my single favorite thing on the planet, shot in higher definition than the human eye can perceive on it's own, in slow motion. This. I love you both.

    The only way this could be cooler is if they captured an octopus or squid squirting out this ink

    It doesn't even look real in the slow mo shots its so....different - the white background is definitely a big part of this
    the red and the green next to each other looks fantastic so does the blue
    I need to learn to make a desktop out of this

    I feel as though people often forget how smart Gavin actually is. (when he isn't messing around.)

    Beautiful.

    Thought the same as the rest here, wallpapers. Or posters. I used to go to www.posterbrain.com/ all the time for posters from hi res images. Those shots would make great posters. Each color as its own poster, that would give a room a very art deco look.

    Yeah. I want to buy 4k resolution images of each of those colors at 2:54 by themselves so I cam make posters from them. Get in touch with me. I have money. Like...dozens of dollars. I can make it sprinkle.

    I don't know why but I decided too stick on the subs but what you get from them is funny, so far from what is being said sometimes.

    This. is. AWESOME! The colors look amazing in not only the water but in slow motion as well.

    Is this a Sony Advert? In the next episode Gav and Dan throw coloured chalk at each other. Dan accidentally inhales it and it becomes a repeat of the Cinnamon challenge video.

    Hi-def is such a good look for slow-mo. I'd love to see more water physics demonstrations - things like freezing and surface tension, always fun to watch up close.

    Keep up the good work!
