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

    • You should attempt this if possible

    • Bruh Bruh cause she doesn’t care for you making her a bad parent.

    • How come mom says no games

    • Stereo lifestyle what???

  • Do Magnets!

  • It takes years of practice for a samurai to be able to cut an arrow mid air with a katana. Dan, first try :-)

  • i subscribe with all my emails to support you hope that helps

  • dan=real warrior

  • Por favor! Façam essa:

  • dan: i godaea clean triggaea i godaea' !! gav: wuo ? dan: a godea i go da frona' gav: you go da frona" ? dan: i go da frona"

  • sub to Judahs garage please

  • Can you do something like this in super slow motion

  • Scientists:exist Me:Playing slow bits at 0.25x playback speed to watch it even slower

  • BEST IDEA FOR THE NEXT VIDEO. 1- heatcam slowmo of an oven being open. Air flow of the whole mixing( hot and cold). The outside and the inside of the oven air, crushing one into the other


  • *Suggestions for The Slow Mo Guys* - Pop a regular balloon under water - Pop a water balloon with colour dye in it under water

  • I would like to see spray welding in slow motion! See it here at normal speed

  • Watch my slow mo vid only 50 seconds

  • What about some slow mo of flint knapping arrowheads

  • try this again slicing along the arrow?

  • hi

  • Next with a bullet please 😂✌️


  • For the next video record a dad in slow mo, those tend leave REAL fast

  • Guys you should make a video of a bowl of cannabis being burned in slow mo up close that'd be badass 🤘🤘

  • you guys should fire an arrow and then try to hit it with a bullet from behind

  • I want to see a slo mo shot of a 50 bmg bullet penetrating wood, and then mabey a slo mo shot of the bullet coming out the back

  • What about the "sneezing in slow motion" I think it's not bad

  • Rip to the equipment lost during the filming though.

  • Great job with the katana, Dan. 👏👏 & sorry about your monitor, Gav. 😟

  • Mazel tov!

  • I like how he says "but look the guy still got it in the gut. At least he didnt get it in the shoulder." Like getting shot in the gut is not as bad as in the shoulder.

  • This should be a sport

  • 8k!!!

  • nicely done!

  • I like that Gav doesn't believe Dan for a few seconds.

  • Myth Busters want to know your location. They failed to slice one in an episode btw


  • I can further slow down ur super slo-mo cameras upto .25x no matter how much u slow down something DONT MESS WITH ME😏😎😎

  • Just the tip can always be dangerous

  • Have you guys ever filmed a whoosh bottle? It's a 13 gallon glass bottle with some alcohol lit from the top. This would be fantastic in slo mo

  • How many frames does our world run at

  • Wow, that was super easy, barely an inconvenience.......

  • Now it’s time for dan to slice bullets

  • He is bringing out his ineer weeb

  • nice video quality vignette looks great bokeh too

  • **Please know Do NOT shoot an arrow straight upwards. It can come back down, and it will hit something. These guys are supposively professionals, but they should know better. Even if the tip isn't a real arrow tip.

  • Can we please talk about how much they've been in america that they started saying inches lol

  • Rip small hd. F to pay respects

  • You should shoot a lead bulet at a spinning grinder

  • How does all the footage slow mo and normal look soo good in direct sunlight!! What camera do they use for normal shots!


  • Dan would be good at deflecting shots in hockey 😂😂😂 hand eye on the guy is unreal

  • Try to catch an arrow with the palms if ur hand

  • You don’t have to but can you do a grass cutter (those you hold) vs fruits

  • 3:25 Gav actually looks pretty badass holding that bow

  • In theory, no harder than hitting a baseball, possibly even easier since the ball needs to be hit "point on" by a narrow baseball bat, while the arrow can be cut in any place along it's length by the sword in any place along it's length. Much larger margin for error. Good footage, but as demonstrated, the feat of striking an arrow with a sword is not difficult.

  • Has anyone seen an englishman called Gavin?

  • 3:52 "that's delicious"

  • Set fire to a pyramid off 500 lighters

  • Who are you? Kwai Chang Caine of Kung Fu TV series or Ninja? ! ;-)

  • The curving arrows are crazy

  • "i got it" "w-wut?"

  • Okay but Dan is a. Looking like a snack and b. A BONAFIDE WARRIOR POET.
