Spinning Records So Fast They Shatter Into Pieces

June 4, 2018


This is a video of Slow Mo Guys Gavin and Dan spinning records so fast they shatter into a million shrapnel pieces, all filmed in slow motion. "Obviously." OBVIOUSLY. It was actually pretty fascinating to see, like watching two caterpillars have sex. "Caterpillars don't have sex, moths and butterflies do." *shaking head disappointingly* THAT'S why it would be so fascinating.

Keep going for the video, but skip around.

Thanks to Suni, who agrees if that had been my Jethro Tull Aqualung album we'd have to fight.

    I was surprised how they explode. Most of these I get "meh" about but this one I think is really cool.

  • Joebags !

    I wish they would tell us artist/album before they did that...

  • GeneralDisorder

    Does it matter? You could freeze-frame during the slow-mo and probably zoom in. I would but... nah.

  • Joebags !

    Does it matter?? The scene from Shaun of the Dead comes to mind... some records you just gotta keep sir.

  • GeneralDisorder

    So... what if one of those records was the one record missing from your collection. What if you even have a jacket from the same pressing? Then what? You're just gonna get yourself upset over something that's too late to do anything about.

  • Joebags !

    Lol dude I just made a comment about wanting to know what the record was. Then my next comment was somewhat of a joke. Idk why you feel the need to retort, but, then again you might have something to say about this comment as well.

    You spin me right round, baby
    Right round like a record, baby
    Right round round round.

    1:52 for the (false) start of the action, then 2:09 for the real start of the action.

    Then 3:12 to see it in slow-mo.

    Firsts may end. I've submitted the paperwork.
