Slicing an Arrow in Half Mid-Air in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys

Pubblicato il 20 ago 2019
Can Dan slice an arrow in half mid air and deflect it away from the target? Can Gav shoot the arrow at Dan without accidentally impaling him? Will they film it in Slow Mo? Definitely yes on that last question. Broken Monitor 2nd channel video -

Slicing an Arrow in Half Mid-Air in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys


  • For those confused - the regular camera is filming at 50fps and edited in a 50fps timeline. The phantom is filming at 1000fps placed in the timeline at a playback speed of 25fps so each frame is doubled in the 50fps timeline. This means that all normal footage is much smoother looking and all the phantom footage is still played as slow as possible at 25fps. Why 50 instead of 60? 25 doesn’t fit into 60 very easily. Why 25 instead of 30? It means our phantom footage doesn’t get sped up. -Gav


    • Very nice all the best

    • @Osama Ahmad really

    • No I'm more confused at the clouds that snap in to place after the test shot and "first" shot

    • whatttt?

  • Catching a arrow in mid air

  • Katana Skill-Level 9000! :D

  • When did dan became a master samurai these videos

  • Got some serious Mark Nut flashbacks with gav shooting the arrow

  • Now do it with a laser swo...... I mean light saber

  • imagine a baseball player trying

  • Dan is now Danobunaga

  • That sound during the slow-mos is so fun !!

  • Split an arrow down the length

  • 0:55 If anyone's interested, if you look at the bow string when Gav plucks it, you can see the vibrating string seemingly going in slow motion because of the camera shutter. Just an interesting thing I noticed

  • 3:06 The cloud in the background looked like a human face😮

  • Okay........its official, Dan's a god.

  • Their expensive moniter broke lol

  • Try that with a compound bow ...

  • 0:54 it looks so strange when the string is pulled because of the rolling shutter


  • This video is gorgeously shot. I love the quality and light.

  • Straight 🔥🔥🔥 on my IT-tvs go check me out!!

  • Did anyone else think they meant splitting the arrow horizontal

  • Shmash a can of soda with a driver

  • You should pin the sword down and shoot at it .

  • I must confess, I'm an idiot. I thought he meant he was planning to cut it lengthways.

  • Need to try out for the Dodgers might make the batting roster.

  • Before watching, what happens if you don’t hit it

  • I have a feeling that dan is a side kick because he doesn’t do the fun stuff but he does the dangerous things

  • I mean technically not in half but still good

  • Just discovered you channel today and it’s so entertaining. Keep it up!

  • Liked the vid but looks like somone needs to hit a few dumbbells a bit, that bow looks to be about a kids 50lb draw back bow and I saw some wiggly arms there a few time's lol.


  • “Guys we’re out of arrows*holds up more arrows**throws them down*ok”

  • Next he splits bullets

  • I love how cute he was when he got it

  • Great lighting in this one.

  • does anyone notices how fake this is? they cut the arrow with a saw, no arrow would break like that and you can also see how they are standing in the greenscreen

  • Dude is the last samurai warrior

  • 0:53 look at the way the bow string wiggles

  • Notice how the string moves so fast that the camera picks it up like a slow wave 0:53

  • That sword must be a real samurai sword, that thing sliced clean.

  • But you made a mistake by breaking the monitor?

  • Overwatch : Hanzo Vs Genji By Netflix

  • yeah

  • I played it at 0.25x so I'm the real slow mo guy

  • You qualify to be a semi-powerful anime character that is going through intense samurai training

  • 0:39 sounds like a hitmarker

  • just use water breathing first configuration


  • you could have brought a piece of cardboard and a bale of hay to catch your arrows.

  • how is this 10 mins

  • Not impressed, I thought you were slicing thru the length of it, but noooo, you just chopping it.

  • Wouldnt it be alot more effective if you hold the sword at an edge so you pushed the arrow down instead of cutting it

  • Not going to lie. Seeing the archer's paradox in this speed with the music is very mesmerizing

  • I got it

  • Funny how you guys tried to block the sun with your hands and did absolutely nothing to block the sun from your eyes lol 😎

  • S

  • We'll at least it WASN'T invein

  • fire an arrow in the rain and film it

  • One of your best videos ever if you ask me

  • This bow is so weird...

  • Where do you get that sword they were using?
