Everything, and I mean everything, looks better when depicted in slow motion.
Proof of concept comes in the form of The Slow Mo Guys on YouTube. Their general mission statement is to document things we rarely think about and showcase them in sumptuous slow-moving goodness.
Their car stuff in particular has struck a chord with Driven in the past. In December they showed what happens when you drop a huge wrecking ball on a BMW 3 Series, and this week they're dedicating the channel to yet more vehicle hi-jinx.
And here's one of the latest; a simulated head-on crash with both cars moving at 50mp/h (80km/h — or a 160km/h total impact).
As you'll see in the clip, the team have ... difficulties ... with the test at first. But in the end a hapless Toyota Camry and Honda Accord meet their makers — sacrificial lambs to an almost bang-on money shot.
Complete with parcel-shelves full of watermelons and balloons full of paint, obviously.
