Today's "I can't believe I watched the whole thing" video is this clip, in which a bunch of different items are destroyed by other things, but done in slow motion. This is thanks to the Phantom Flex camera, whose only purpose it seems is to provide people with 2500 frames per second of shooting so that we can all enjoy videos of things exploring or being destroyed.

This was all done for the Danish TV show "Dumt & Farligt", which translates quite nicely to "Stupid & Dangerous." Yeah, I can see that.

At least they didn't destroy an iPad. That'll probably happen in the next video.
