Transcription

  • - Hello, I'm Gav. - I'm Dan.
  • We're The Slow Mo Guys here on the PlayStation channel
  • doing a cheeky video for MLB The Show.
  • Haven't really done sports before,
  • unless you count getting violently dunked on.
  • And I threw a football at your head once.
  • That's about as close as it gets.
  • Yes, so today, we're going to get some lovely high-speed shots
  • of Dan playing baseball, but first,
  • we'll tell you a little bit about the game.
  • MLB The Show 19 brings new game modes,
  • an extensive personalized RPG experience,
  • and the option to play as and against the MLB's greatest stars
  • and past legends.
  • On top of this, a big effort this offseason went
  • into analyzing and revamping the hitting engine in The Show.
  • The developers have combed in-game telemetry
  • and user feedback, turning it into the biggest update
  • of the hitting engine in The Show's history
  • to make it more fun and rewarding.
  • Right here we've got two Phantoms,
  • Phantom Flex4K, thousand frames a second,
  • and a v2640, which is going at about 12,500 frames a second
  • for some super close-up slow-mo meat.
  • Dan, have you ever hit a baseball before?
  • Well, the only other balls I've ever hit
  • have either hit the ground first or have been like granny thrown.
  • So my first introduction is going to be pretty serious,
  • and I'm kind of nervous.
  • I felt like I wanted to give you a true baseball experience,
  • so I'm not going to be pitching.
  • We actually have a real pitcher here, we got Kevin,
  • who's going to throw you some actual, proper baseballs.
  • Nervous?
  • I'm actually really nervous.
  • Hold on.
  • [SPITTING]
  • Do not try at home. Always use appropriate safety equipment.
  • I'm rolling.
  • Kevin, whenever you're ready.
  • [BALL HITS BACKSTOP]
  • All right.
  • It's going to be like that, is it?
  • [BALL HITS BACKSTOP]
  • That was a swing and a miss.
  • All right, hold a sec, I'm just going to save one of those.
  • Okay, ready for another one.
  • [BAT HITS BALL]
  • Wasn't exactly a home run.
  • Okay, let's do one more.
  • [BALL THUDS]
  • I got the bounce back
  • straight in the jaw.
  • All right, hold on.
  • That was really close to me there.
  • That hit you in the face?
  • Yes, it bounced off the back wall
  • and beaned me straight in the jaw.
  • I was like, well, I missed there and then suddenly--
  • Like I'm getting punched in the face.
  • All right, let's give that a gander.
  • - Okay, you ready? - Yes.
  • Look at that arm muscle swinging.
  • Oh, yes.
  • Why haven't I reacted yet?
  • Do you think you know that Kevin's thrown it yet?
  • I don't think so.
  • At this point, I'm like, "Oh, I should probably react."
  • I've already-- I've started swinging
  • and it's pretty much already gone past me.
  • Gosh, there's no time.
  • I thought I missed it by a mile, let's see.
  • Ooh, yes, I think I--
  • It's a few inches, for sure.
  • You see the shadow go past.
  • Yes, you can see the shadow on the bat.
  • - Yes. - About there, yes.
  • That is--that's actually a fair few amount of inches.
  • In baseball, that's quite fast.
  • About a mile away.
  • But in the grand scheme of the universe,
  • that's actually-- it was very close to the bat.
  • The face is pretty good though.
  • It was closer than things like Saturn
  • and the asteroid belt.
  • All right, why don't you give it a go instead?
  • Let's see if we got it clomping you in the face.
  • I'm looking around to see where it's gone.
  • You've given it the flabbergasted lips.
  • Yes.
  • Well, that was terrible.
  • And then the ball was like,
  • "Here's what you get for missing me."
  • I turn around looking for it.
  • [ECHOING THUD]
  • It smacks me in the face.
  • It didn't even-- it kind of hurt as well.
  • Right in the bottom of the chin.
  • Even though I can't see it on the camera,
  • it was still funny to me.
  • It's still very funny.
  • Dan, I'll stop you there.
  • Great effort, obviously.
  • - Thank you. - Top performance.
  • But I feel like in order to truly celebrate
  • the new hitting engine,
  • we should be filming a legend.
  • - Well, thank you very much. - Not you.
  • What about Ken Griffey Jr.?
  • - Ah. - A legend.
  • Yes, you probably have a better chance of hitting it than I do.
  • Let's be honest.
  • How many baseballs have you ever hit, Ken, total?
  • - Have you kept count? - No.
  • - Obviously not. - I don't think, at this rate,
  • I've never hit one.
  • - I've never hit one. - You can count it.
  • Yes, I can, yes.
  • Ken, do you enjoy watching yourself
  • in incredibly slow motion?
  • I've never seen it before.
  • Well, this should be exciting.
  • Yes, I'm excited to see it.
  • Why don't we get out of his way?
  • - I think so, yes. - All right.
  • Let's give it a shot.
  • All right, Dan, you've been promoted to catcher
  • while Ken's on the old bat.
  • How do you feel about a little montage?
  • Do I get music?
  • All right.
  • Let's attempt to put this on then.
  • [GROANS IN PAIN]
  • Hey, Dan.
  • Did you ever think you'd be doing this with your life?
  • No!
  • Why'd you put me in this horrible situation?
  • Why isn't he back here and you over there?
  • Oh, because he's even worse than I am.
  • Who's left-handed in the group?
  • None of us.
  • [BALL BOUNCES IN THE DIRT]
  • I swear he's aiming for me.
  • Let's go again.
  • [BAT SMACKS BALL]
  • You got that one.
  • Okay, saving.
  • All right, this is full slow-mo here.
  • When it's that slow, it makes it look easy.
  • See, Ken has a much better baseball face than you do.
  • Yes, luckily my face is being obscured by the helmet
  • because it would be pretty terrible if it wasn't.
  • I think I've already closed my eyes at this point.
  • Oh, you can see the slight compression on the ball there.
  • - See that? - I saw it like--
  • We should definitely get a close-up of that.
  • I bet there's also some flex in the bat
  • that we'll be able to see.
  • You can see it actually, it moves all the way up the bat.
  • You can see it in your fingers.
  • Can you feel that on your hands when you hit it?
  • - Yes. - You can?
  • Yes.
  • Oh, it's so satisfying watching that.
  • That's what I was getting wrong.
  • A lot to get out of there, look at that.
  • Yes, that's how you do it.
  • - That's how it's done. - Yes.
  • All right, I think we should switch up our angle.
  • Rolling.
  • [BALL THUDS AGAINST GLOVE]
  • I was trying to dive out of the way at the same time
  • as stopping it from hitting my body.
  • [BAT SMACKS BALL]
  • There we go.
  • That was nice.
  • [ECHOING SMACK]
  • It stops the bat mid-swing, do you see that?
  • The bat stops after it hits the ball
  • for a very small period of time.
  • If we shoot this from the side, we'll definitely see that.
  • The way the bat goes-- and then carries on.
  • Yes.
  • Chubby face in the bottom.
  • - Your face? - Yes.
  • You can see me dive out the way of it as well.
  • You just see the ball coming and me just go, "No."
  • Okay, slightly unorthodox setup here.
  • We're facing backwards, but because of the light,
  • this will get the perfect angle on Ken's bat,
  • and hopefully we'll see the ripple on this bad boy.
  • - Ken, are you ready? - Yes.
  • All right.
  • [BAT SMACKS BALL INTO FENCE]
  • That was a good one.
  • Yes, that came straight through frame I think.
  • I saw that on the camera.
  • I like the movement of the bat before you hit it.
  • What is actually really interesting
  • is how still your head is and the rest of your body.
  • Oh, yes, you see the bat slow down and flex everywhere.
  • You see that wibbling?
  • I'm not sure that's what they call it, but...
  • - Wibblement? - Yes, wibblement.
  • New word.
  • I made it up, I'm all right with it.
  • - Oh, yes. - Nice.
  • So do you ever feel yourself doing tiny micro-adjustments
  • as you swing, or is it just full beans--
  • - Full. - Full beans.
  • Just trying to murder the ball.
  • Yes, I don't make any adjustment.
  • Extension and elevation.
  • - Commit. - Yes.
  • It was pretty square, wasn't it?
  • That was first attempt too.
  • All right, just because I missed every single one, rub it in.
  • We'll make him do it next time.
  • Yes, yes!
  • You know, actually, because I was laughing
  • at your baseball face earlier.
  • I actually grabbed a close-up of Ken's baseball face.
  • - Oh, yes? - If you want to look at that.
  • Well, it's going to be much more composed than mine,
  • I should imagine.
  • - Take it in stride. - Yes.
  • Look at that, that's absolute concentration there.
  • The head is totally still.
  • Keeping your eye on the ball.
  • Brian, I need my phone.
  • It's almost like you knew your face
  • was being filmed at the time, and you did a perfect--
  • - Young Denzel. - Yes, yes.
  • God, look at the guns going off there.
  • Yes, yes.
  • Every now and then and I got to have a gun show.
  • Boom, perfect.
  • So now how do you feel about slow motion?
  • - I like it. - Yes?
  • All right, I think we got everything we need, Ken.
  • Perfect, I enjoyed it.
  • - Thanks very much for coming. - No problem.
  • Well, Dan, that was some lovely looking footage.
  • I assume you mean the ones that Ken Griffey Jr. actually hit
  • rather than the ones I whiffed.
  • You would be correct, although I did like you
  • getting bonked in the head by the one that you missed.
  • I somehow have been injured again in this video.
  • I took one to the jaw,
  • I'm pretty sure I've busted my finger up.
  • Hopefully you enjoyed that video.
  • We're The Slow Mo Guys, we have a channel,
  • you can subscribe to us if you would like,
  • and a big old thanks to Ken Griffey Jr.
