Fruit vs Fruit

Fruit vs Fruit


– Hello, I’m Gav.
– I’m Dan. Welcome “The Super Slow Show.” A lot of things that look
very good in slow motion involve a massive buildup
in pressure followed by a rapid release. Especially when it’s used
to destroy stuff, like fruit, for example. Do you think we’ll
ever run out of ways
to destroy fruit? Yes. – Okay, well, not today.
– Not today. Today we’re using fruit
to destroy other fruit. Uh, we did just try
throwing the fruit. Uh, it didn’t–
didn’t really work. – Go.
– Oh. Go. Go. I was aiming for the fruit. Oh, I’m sorry. I guess we did get
sort of grapefru– fruit versus grapefruit there. – Yeah.
– You all right? Right in my grapefruit. – Painful.
– Yeah. As you can see,
very painful. So instead, we’ve got these
air compressor things, and we’re gonna
put fruit in them and use them to annihilate
themselves, I guess. Before we crack on with this, should we just see
how powerful these are? – Yeah. Yeah, I’m intrigued.
– Okay. – All right, you ready, Dan?
– I think so. I’ll be damn impressed
if you get this. – So will I.
– All right, three, two, one. Oh. – Butterfingers.
– So close. Three, two, one, ho! Three, two, one. That is up there. Get under it, son! – Oh!
– You were right there! Oh! I got a finger to it. Why don’t you bring
the remains over? It’s a damn good effort. It’s really hard,
’cause I’m like… I can’t see what I’m doing. All right, let’s fire that
at some other that. Wait. The remains
of the oranges and stuff? Well, not that exact one. So these air cannons
are at 90 PSI at the moment, which is hopefully
gonna annihilate. The Phantom is gonna be set
to a thousand FPS. Is that Fruits Per Second? – It is not.
– Okay. – Ready?
– Yes. Right. Three, two, one. – Ooh. 54.
– Feel it. Look at that.
It looks like a “bogey”
on the screen. Hang on. Playback. Okay, so this is
the tight angle. This should be delicious. If it was brighter,
I’d stick on a 90%
shutter angle, but… let’s see
if we got good impact. ( both gasping ) – Love it.
– There’s, like,
a fine apple mist. – Yeah.
– I imagine it would be
quite refreshing to be sort of underneath that and just sprayed
with the apple mist. – Oh, yes.
– Lovely. Dan:
There’s a frame there
where it looks like the apple is being
just peeled perfect. Gav: Yeah. – Yeah, there.
– That one, yeah. Gav:
When fruit impacts like that, the split pattern
is always quite symmetrical. – Yeah. Yeah.
– Oddly symmetrical. So you’re saying
a hundred-mile impact. Hundred mile-an-hour impact. Cool. So this one’s orange
versus orange? – Love it.
– Expecting it to be juicier and less sort of bitty,
I guess. – Less bitty.
– Less bitty. – More drippy.
– More drippy. – I’m on the radar gun.
– Okay, you ready? – Yeah.
– Three, two, one. That seemed
to come out faster. – Did you get it?
– Didn’t register. – It’s too fast. Too fast.
– ‘Cause I was pointing
the wrong way. Maybe I can measure
the speed now. Doesn’t work.
Doesn’t work now. Look at the juice. All the juice
going to waste. Oh, that piece is just
hanging up in the air. So this is 1,800 FPS
on our super-tight shot. What if your mouth
was going through that? – You’d be, like, “Mmm!”
– That would be delicious. Gav:
Bloody delicious. Should we–
Should we sandwich a fruit? Like with two apples but have
something in the middle? – Yeah, something fat.
– Like a maybe– – Like a watermelon or–
– I’m loving that idea. – Yeah?
– Yeah. Now we’ll get
our hero watermelon. Put this in the middle,
and we’ll be set. – Okay.
– ( exhales sharply ) You know what I like?
The more fruit we do, the more the set sounds
like this. Oh, sticky,
like a cinema floor. Yeah. Gav:
This melon is thinking, “Wow, I’m important enough to be put on my own podium.” – This is brilliant.
– Yeah. Little does it know. – You ready?
– Yeah. Three, two, one. It just bounced off the front. Do we have the other one
not come out? No, I think they
both came out. It just brained
the watermelon. Oh, look at it dripping.
You can hear it. Oh, gross. Oh, there’s
the other apple. – Is it in there?
– Yeah. Get out of there.
Look at that. – For some reason–
– We found he bullet. This is–
There’s something quite
disturbing about this. Just look at it. ( Gav groans ) You wanna try a bit? Hang on. I need a snack
for when we watch it back. – Oh!
– One before the other. ( both imitating explosions ) – Oh! Man. Jeez.
– They almost both went in. The one on the right
just didn’t have enough beans to go all the way in. Well, everything is sticky. Everything is sticky,
but that’s the sign
of a good video. – That’s true.
– Some of that footage
looked top, too, – especially the P.O.V. stuff.
– So difficult to get. Getting the fruit
to hit perfectly
and perfectly in focus, everything has to go right,
and thankfully it did. – That’s true.
– So what was
your favorite shot? It’s all apples
and oranges, really.
It’s just, uh… That it is.
