There’s an almost poetic beauty in watching someone commit a terrible mistake that’s too late for them to fix anyway. This is the premise for the latest video from the Slow Mo Guys, who decided it would be a bloody grand idea to set up a bunch of mousetraps on a trampoline and then get amongst it.
The idea comes from Gavin Free and Dan Gruchy, who run The Slow Mo Guys, which is a viral YouTube channel specialising in all sorts of slow-mo craziness. The premise of the show is fairly easy to follow, Gavin and Dan, armed with their trusty high-speed camera, film different stunts and performances to show you the wonders of slow-motion.
It took the boys an agonising 4 hours to line the trampoline with over 1,000 mousetraps and they even had to contend with a couple of false starts. Even through the video, you can sense old mates fear as he hobbles up their makeshift launch pad to bravely go where no one has gone before: face first into a fuckload of mouse traps.
The mousetraps leap into the air like water crashing on a rock, nipping and clamping as our brave hero finds himself in a sea of despair and agony.
Have a gander at the video below and kids please, don’t try this at home.
