Blowing Up A Building In Slo-Mo Is A Great Way To Start The Month

Is there a better way to ring in November than watching a controlled explosion? Sure there is, if said explosion was captured by a Phantom Flex high-speed camera at 2500 fps. The Slow Mo Guys are back and after playing around with a couple of grenades (please don’t try that at home) they set their sites — or viewfinder — on their largest explosion yet.

As always, everything is better in slow motion, and this time around it’s fascinating to see the effects of the initial blast before the fuel-powered fireball engulfs the structure. Not to mention how little time one actually has to get clear after tossing a live grenade.
