...but I don't think I need to know what that is.
I like that they are safety conscious enough to use an electric mower indoors instead of a gas mower.
They either have an amazing set-dresser or Denmark has a lot of cheap, abandoned houses, because a lot of those buildings are not going to be habitable after these stunts...
They could film in Cleveland. Lots of houses there that nobody seems to want.
You will notice a few kitchen shots in the same kitchen. I think these are the same people that filled bathroom full of water until the floor gave way. They eventually burned that house down with grease fire.
I saw an interview with the two hosts about the show.
Apparently, they only use the one house throughout the series. The house was barely habitable at the start of the series, and really not habitable after.
What kind of egg is that?
OK, not the same show.
Yes, same show.
From what I can make out, Ikke gjør dette hjemme is norwegian (nrk), Dumt & Farligt is danish (zulu). They have simliare premises and logos but different hosts and languages. However, given I know neither Norwegian nor Danish I could be wrong.
I wonder what the neighbors thought.
Mom is going to be so pissed when she gets home.
This is like a best-of-clips reel for Mythbusters.
The word you are looking for is "porn".
I forgive you for exposing me to that superman... thing... the other day.
Which you watched all the way through like the rest of us, right? I wish someone was there with a high speed camera when I bleached my eyes after that one.
Of course I did. I sat there, helpless, as interest turned to boredom, boredom to confusion, confusion to panic, panic to horror, and finally, when even my horror had fled, I was left empty, devoid of conscious thought (fortunately I was on the internet already, so no one noticed).
This, however, has satisfied some visceral need in me. It's not just the superb high-speed, but the incongruous and extreme destruction. None of those things belong indoors, but I can't stop grinning.
Man, you guys must be on a different internet than I am. If I ever achieve my dream of having a gigantic monitor wall in my house, at any given point that Superman video will be playing in high-speed on at least two screens at any given time.
For the coke and bullet at 2:30, does it actually ricochet back and hit the can from the other side?
No. There was a second shooter.
Back... and buy the world a coke. Back... and buy the world a coke.
I've watched an awful lot of high speed photography, but those were inspired. As always, thank-you for bring the awesome.
As an aside, I once re-encoded a bunch of videos that had been shot at 1000-5000fps back to real-time - i.e. 5000fps - to test the video scratching product I used to be involved with. Move the record even smallest amount, and scrub back and forward over shit blowing up. Lots of fun.
Vastly more satisfying than, and what should've happened in, the Vacuum Superman.
It's so... relaxing...
They need different titles:
"Flour and Candle" -> "When My Meth Lab Blew Up"
"Waterbed and Needle" -> "When 'That Superman Thing' Got A Stiffy"
Watching people being punched in the face would run a close second:
That was the video that introduced me to Muscles, who is great.
The part where they blow up the barbecue grill reminds me of the time when George Goble of Purdue University discovered that you could light a barbecue grill really goddamn fast by pouring liquid oxygen onto it.
Turns out, if you try it on a dollar-store grill, the only thing you'll be cooking is the grill itself. And when I say 'cooking', what I really mean is 'reducing to slag'.
Sadly, the video isn't nearly as high quality as this one.
