Slow motion makes everything better; it makes comedy funnier, it makes action more intense, it makes sports more accessible and it makes bubble popping more hypnotic.

Leave it to the Slow Mo Guys on YouTube to explore not only bubble popping, but a slew of other interesting actions using their trusty super slow motion Phantom v1610 camera, some of which have millions upon millions of views. Watching bubble popping at 2,000 frames per second like in the video is already pretty hypnotic as it is, but things get extra crazy when they slow things down to 18,000 frames per second. To give some perspective, most movies we watch are filmed and played back at 24 frames per second to mimic real life movement. At 18,000 frames, a popping bubble slowly gets eaten away out of existence and looks like a popped water balloon.

Who knows what the Slow Mo Guys will slow down next, whatever it is, it'll be made more awesome by the slow motion.
