Slow-Mo Mirror Smashing Is All It’s Cracked Up To Be

Cause breaking up is shard to to.

This may shatter your expectations.

In a moment of reflection, the Slow Mo Guys decide to throw a hammer through a mirror and film it in super slow motion.

First the guys give a not-too-revealing view of the predictable shattering at 2,500 frames per second. But then we get to the very cool reason we’re wasting our time on the internet for this one: a detailed look at 120,000 frames per second that shows what the lads describe as a “shockwave.” 

Daniel Gruchy ponders the years of bad luck he’ll have for the mirror breakage, but if the goal was to entertain us, it was worth it.
