Dare To Dream: Video Of 'Most Balloons Popped Domino-Style With A Laser'

June 28, 2016


This is a video of 100 balloons in a row being popped by a Wicked Lasers Spyder III Krypton to set the record for 'most balloons popped domino-style with a laser.' The feat was achieved by Scott A. Stevenson, who, as far as I can tell, really didn't do anything but buy a laser and find a long hallway in order to set the record. Maybe you and I should buy a laser and pop 101 balloons. Or -- OR -- just blind the shit out of each other. Just a thought. Also, did anybody else notice how the balloons in the middle of the line seemed to pop quicker than the ones at the beginning and end? Is there some sort of scientific explanation for that? Because, and I'm just throwing this out there, but my guess is magnets.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Gav, who popped over 200 balloons with a single roundhouse kick wearing golf cleats.

    I was expecting some redneck to wave his hand infront of the beam, get burned and say damn that's hot.

  • Yeah... he's 100 short of the actual record.

  • Scott A. Stevenson

    They used a massive laboratory laser with mains power, not a small handheld battery-powered laser. It is not a fair comparison.

    How the hell is that an issue?!

    That's like claiming you're the fastest runner in the world until someone mentions Usain Bolt and then you're like "Well he's an Olympian. It is not a fair comparison".

    Where on your record does it say "record holder except against lasers that cost 'x' amount of dollars"?

    Why are you bitches messing with the design of the site again?

    Explanation: The focal point for the laser beam was set to about 2/3rds the length of the line of balloons. This was the optimal point to ensure full destruction of the full line of balloons done at a reasonably quick pace. :-)
