If you’re having a rough day at the office and time seems to be moving at a sluggish pace, just be thankful it’s not moving as slow as this slow motion crash cymbal video.

Taking the ever-popular fad of recording things at incredibly high-frame rates and applying it to instrument reverberations, this slow motion crash cymbal video will surely give drummers a new perspective on how their instrument works.

But how slow is slow? Well, Propadata Films, the makers of this time-tampering video, shot the whole thing at 1000 frames per second! To put things into perspective, standard blockbuster films are only shot at 24 frames per second.

Implications - North Americans are still recovering from the economic recession and are looking to the media for diversions. Slow-motion depictions are effective for this task as they entertain the eyes in abstract ways. Companies looking to garner public interest may do so through offering clever distractions.
