Transcription

  • GAV: Hello, I'm Gav. DAN: I'm Dan.
  • GAV: We're the Slow Mo Guys.
  • DAN: Gav, I was in the Army for about seven years... GAV: Yeah, you were Dan.
  • DAN: ... which means that I've got a lot of experience firing different types of guns.... GAV: Yeah.
  • DAN: ... and just before we did the Super-Slow Show, we fired possibly the fattest kind there is.
  • [BANG]
  • DAN: Big .50 cal rifle. GAV: We shot the mirror right in the face...
  • DAN: We did!
  • DAN: We did.
  • GAV: And the rounds were about this big. DAN: Yeah, I got a headache from firing it a few too many times.
  • GAV: Well, you've clearly read the title. You know this video is the complete opposite.
  • DAN: Bit of a giveaway! GAV: This is a tiny little pinfire gun, um...
  • GAV: ... which technically isn't a firearm because it's not rimfire, it's pinfire. DAN: Ooooh.
  • GAV: It's got a little key-ring on it. DAN: So it-- Oh, you can have it as a key ring!
  • GAV: Yeah, you could wear it as a necklace. DAN: Wow.
  • DAN: So the 50 cal was 12.7 mil, I think... GAV: Okay.
  • DAN: ...and that's 2 mil. GAV: Yeah.
  • DAN: Which is a hefty difference. GAV: It's wee.
  • DAN: Look, there's like 20 rounds in here. It's a tiny little bottle. Look at this little bottle!
  • DAN: Most bullets are bigger than this. GAV: You know what, we're not doing a very good size comparison.
  • GAV: We don't have a standard procedure American quarter.
  • GAV: There you go. Georgie Wash. DAN: Oh! Nice one!
  • DAN: That's crazy, isn't it? I've got sweaty hands, so this is gonna be so hard to do.
  • DAN: Slipped in there. GAV: Slips right in.
  • DAN: No safety, but I'm not gonna cock it yet, I'm just gonna put it there. That's ready to fire now.
  • DAN: You hit that with anything else, it'd just blow it away.
  • GAV: It would absolutely annihilate it. DAN: It'd just annihilate it. You'd never see it again.
  • GAV: Right, what do you think you're aiming for? I reckon a middle 'A'.
  • DAN: Middle 'A'? Okay. GAV: Yeah.
  • DAN: I'm a bit nervous, because I've never missed from this far before. So if I miss...
  • GAV: But when you think about it, when you scale it up, it's further.
  • DAN: It's like a 25 meter shot. GAV: Yeah.
  • DAN: Ready? GAV: Mmhmm.
  • DAN: Ooh! It's a hit! I got it! GAV: You got it?
  • GAV: Ooh, smells nice. DAN: Ohh, it makes a dent as well.
  • GAV: You didn't get 'A', you got 'C'.
  • DAN: Are you complaining about me missing? Look at this, right? Look at the sheen on my fingers, yeah?
  • DAN: I have to pull this back, and then I have to like fire this with my nail and my sweaty palms.
  • DAN: It's like slipping all over the place. It's a wonder I can even fire the damn thing!
  • DAN: It must mean it's quite powerful if I hit it at such a low center of gravity and it still knocked the target over.
  • DAN: Woah! Wow! Gosh!
  • GAV: It flattened it. DAN: That flattened it, cause that's a ball!
  • GAV: Okay, so let's go frame by frame and see if we need to go faster.
  • GAV: Seems like it fires a lot of... gunk. DAN: Yeah, in that tiny little round, it's like...
  • GAV: Oh, there! There it is, you can see it streak to the front of all those sparks there.
  • DAN: I saw it, it was in the middle of the smoke when it came out, and now it's overtaken it.
  • GAV: Oh, wow, so it's still a streak at 12 and a half thousand FPS! (foops!)
  • DAN: Gah... That's mental! GAV: That is really fast!
  • GAV: I wonder what the, like, foot-per-second of that thing is. Cause that was a-- was that you? You said it was a blur.
  • DAN: You just have to crack the barrel like this, and then in there, in the end, is our spent round.
  • DAN: So we've got to get our push rod here, shove it in...
  • DAN: ... and it should just push out the old round. There we go. That's the push rod there.
  • DAN: You see, it's got all like black carbon around it because it's been fired, and it doesn't have a bullet on it there,
  • DAN: whereas these ones... let's just open our little magazine up... boop!
  • DAN: These ones are clean, and they have little ball bullets on the end. You can see the difference there.
  • DAN: I real-- I want one now, as like a little necklace or like a keyring. That'd be so cool!
  • GAV: Yeah, someone walks up to you and goes, "Hey, uh... mate? Do you carry?"
  • DAN: Yeah, I've got an open carry license actually. There we go!
  • DAN: We've moved further back, there's a couple of feet here, and I'm gonna try and burst a...
  • DAN: ... strawberry... soda... red... sort-of fizzy drink can.
  • GAV: I've gone all the way over here because I don't want to get sticky on the cameras.
  • DAN: Bit harder to hit the target from here actually, as well. Yeah. GAV: Is it?
  • DAN: OH!! Pfffffft-ah!!! You're kiddin' me!!
  • GAV: No way! DAN: It got me directly in the face!
  • DAN: Oh man! If I hadn't had these on it'd have got me in the eye ball!
  • GAV: It came out the other side! DAN: Did it?
  • DAN: I am not getting shot by that thing! GAV: It went all the way through!
  • DAN: That's the entrance there. GAV: Did you go right through the hole in the 'e'?
  • DAN: Yeah well that's what I was aiming for, obviously. GAV: Yeah...
  • GAV: I looked over and it was just-- it was spewing out of both sides at once.
  • DAN: Right, this is what I saw, okay? I was here, just like, "oh co-- co-- ho-- fire, come on!"
  • DAN: It, like, after aiming, it fired, and I was surprised that it fired, and then,
  • DAN: because I had my eyes open, all I saw was this-- this-- I saw in slow motion I swear!
  • DAN: Just strawberries coming straight at my face. I don't even think it hit the table. It just went, "tssssssst"
  • DAN: straight into my eyes, and on my ears and everything, and I was just like, "Eeeuuggghhh!!!"
  • DAN: Absolutely nailed me!
  • DAN: That's incredible! I was never expecting it to go through both sides, I thought it would sort of struggle to get through one side.
  • DAN: And this is what I mean, right? It just went straight to me! GAV: Just straight in your face!
  • DAN: It didn't even hit the table! It's not even hitting the table, it just went straight into my face.
  • GAV: That's so funny! DAN: Perfect.
  • GAV: You've drunk half the can. DAN: Yeah, I really have. What a way to open a can!
  • DAN: I think it's the only gun that's actually comical. It's funny how small it is,
  • DAN: and it even made a cheeky little exit there, just tore through. I've never seen such a small hole!
  • DAN: GAH!!
  • GAV: Knocked it over! DAN: Jeez!
  • DAN: So you would assume that this is the exit wound, but, if you push it together,
  • DAN: you can actually see that that's where it went in, and it's come out of here.
  • DAN: Took off! The entire can took off!
  • GAV: When the pellet comes out the other side, it doesn't split immediately. There's actually a few frames where it's just a hole.
  • DAN: That's because this is pressurized, so as soon as it like gets weakened, it just goes, "Whoahhhh!"
  • GAV: What are you about to do? DAN: Shoot a little (Lego?) man in the face.
  • DAN: With this. This to him, is gigantic! GAV: It's like an artillery cannon!
  • DAN: Yeah, it's like an artillery cannon or something.
  • DAN: Okay, ready? GAV: Yep.
  • DAN: Oh, where'd he go? GAV: He just vanished!
  • DAN: Where'd he go? Oh here he is! I found him!
  • DAN: Oh his arm went! I took his arm off! I took his arm off.
  • GAV: At this speed, when I rock it backwards and forwards, you can actually see the momentum travel through his body like he's a full-sized human.
  • DAN: Look, you can see where it's hit there, and it's like, knocked his arm off.
  • GAV: He's got an arm off. DAN: I'm sorry pal!
  • GAV: So this bloke has survived a Lego plane crash...
  • *traumatic flashback*
  • DAN: Yeah. GAV: and now you blew his arm off?
  • DAN: I feel sorry for him now, you've made me feel guilty about it. There's no need for that!
  • DAN: OH! I think I got him. I think I knocked his block off.
  • DAN: I shot his hat off! Yeah! GAV: You shot the hat off a Lego man?
  • DAN: Ohh... wait, what? Ohh... GAV: I think it hit the front of his hat.
  • GAV: See that dent in his red hat? DAN: Yeah. That's an absolute headshot there.
  • GAV: It protected him! DAN: His earphones are still on as well.
  • GAV: His muffs and his hat protected him.
  • GAV: It actually saved his head!
  • DAN: So found his hat. It's got a huge dent in it right in the forehead middle part.
  • DAN: To scale that's probably about a mile his hat flew.
  • DAN: This is an execution... OH!! Ow!
  • DAN: Toong! GAV: Boing!
  • DAN: Ahhh! Hit my finger! GAV: It hit you!
  • GAV: Because this is so small, I want to get a shot on a macro lens.
  • GAV: This is a Canon macro lens, and this is a PL mount, so I'm gonna have to do a little bit of...
  • GAV: ... open-heart surgery on the Phantom here.
  • GAV: First I should take this lens off.
  • GAV: You tilt it down a little bit, sort of lessens the chance that anything will fall onto the sensor.
  • GAV: Canon mount...
  • GAV: ... stick a shim in there...
  • DAN: I like how you're individually tightening the screws a little bit, because it's a circle you can't get away
  • DAN: with just tightening one at a time. GAV: Yeah, if you put one all the way in then there's no way this one would go in.
  • GAV: So now... this Phantom fits Canon lenses!
  • GAV: Go look at the end of that! Isn't that weird?
  • DAN: Blimey!
  • DAN: Nice job! GAV: A-thank you!
  • DAN: We're gonna use the clamp just to make sure that, because the macro has such a fine little focus, and I've got such fat fingers,
  • DAN: Anytime I fire it, it inevitably moves millimeters left and right,
  • DAN: but because we're macro that means that that's a whole world out of focus.
  • DAN: So we're gonna have to use a clamp here to make sure it just doesn't move and I'll just *boop* fire it.
  • DAN: Oh my word! It makes it look huge!
  • DAN: Oooh!
  • GAV: Look at this, it looks so big and heavy. It's like, "pshooo-pah"
  • DAN: It looks like a huge piece of machinery, doesn't it? GAV: Yeah.
  • GAV: Just the fact that the legs sink into the grass, was throwing the whole thing out of focus. I was having to hold it...
  • DAN: I saw you bracing your thumb against this... GAV: ... in 3D space. I was doing this. I was like...
  • GAV: I was controlling the whole thing by extending my finger against the table, like that.
  • DAN: Yeah. Clever! GAV: So this will be a macro shot right at the barrel.
  • DAN: Firing.
  • DAN: Oooh!
  • DAN: Oh... it's so quick! You don't see anything. GAV: You don't see anything.
  • GAV: Just for size comparison in that macro shot, I want to see what the coin looks like next to the barrel.
  • GAV: Go for it!
  • DAN: That's mental!
  • GAV: A good visual comparison there. DAN: That is really cool. Nice idea!
  • DAN: I like how the foresight is out of focus, but the side of the barrel isn't. That must be... like a millimeter?
  • DAN: Yeah, a quarter is fatter than the distance between... the foresight and the edge of the barrel,
  • DAN: which is like, about a millimeter probably. So 1mm out, and you've completely lost focus.
  • DAN: Is it weird that I had as much fun firing this little thing as I did the 50 cal, just in a different way?
  • GAV: I prefer this because it doesn't rattle my head. DAN: Well of course you do! Yeah, to be fair, I have a headache after firing this now.
  • DAN: Yeah, that's really little-- really fun. GAV: I might though, on the macro shots, take all the sounds from the 50 Cal and put 'em...
  • GAV: *explosions*
  • GAV: I liked that though, just enjoyed the whole of making that video. Was nice and fun, nice and easy.
  • GAV: Aside from the macro, that was a nightmare. DAN: Surprisingly powerful though.
  • DAN: Have to be careful with these things. They're not to be messed around with, really.
  • GAV: Well I mean we saw what it did to... the-- the can, it had an exit wound.
  • DAN: Exactly. Exactly, yeah. GAV: You wouldn't want that in your eye or your... any skin.
  • DAN: No, so just point it away at all times, you're wearing like safety goggles and all that good stuff.
  • DAN: My trigger discipline was solid today. GAV: Hopefully you enjoyed that video.
  • GAV: Feel free to follow us on Instagram, subscribe to our YouTube channel, that's this one.
  • GAV: We've also got the other one behind the scenes and all that. Slow Mo Guys 2.
  • GAV: You can bung that a sub as well if you want. It's just more us... tragically, just...
  • GAV: It's more of us blokes. We'll see you in the next video!

Description

Gav and Dan have fired some massive guns. This is not a video that contains a massive gun. In fact, this gun is smaller than a lot of bullets!
