The Slow Mo Guys have returned yet again. The YouTubers are famous for filming ridiculous events, in slow motion, like a man exploding out of a giant water balloon, or a taser hitting someone’s bare skin.
This time the video was inspired by a picture submitted to Reddit, a Jell-O advertisement claiming that their product will essentially be cut into rectangles if hit with a tennis racket. Although the advertisement is a bit exaggerated, this is essentially what happens:

The Slow Mo Guys are brilliant! I love their slow motion videos. This time Dan Gruchy and Gavin Free are exploring a whole new level of stunt strangeness by making Dan crawl inside a giant balloon, which is then filled with water until it explodes.
The Slow Mo Guys filled another 6 foot long balloon with water a while back and jumped on it until it burst. Seeing Dan sitting there with his head sticking out of a giant watery balloon sac is utterly hilarious!

The latest in the People Are Awesome series has clips from videos uploaded in 2014. These people are doing awesome and crazy things – something I’ll certainly be using with my young people in the next few weeks:
Watch this young boy park a go kart like a boss, using his momentum to roll backwards down a corridor, precisely into the spot he aimed for. Then he walks away like a boss.
Here’s a link to a really useful video from Bath YFC and their friends. It’s a contemporary and visually stunning retelling of the Parable of the Lost Son.
‘When he was still a long way off, his father saw him.’ (Luke 15:11-24)
