The Slo-Mo guys are pretty popular on YouTube, which pays them handsome sums to do weird and wacky events and catch them in slow motion. Their most popular videos? Slow-motion taser, slow-motion giant balloon popping, and slow motion fire tornado.
“If there’s anything scarier than a regular tornado, it’s a fire t0rnado — also known as a “firenado” or a “fire devil.”
The Slow Mo Guys managed to summon one of these devils with the help of a dozen fans, and keep it under control so that it could be filmed at 2,500 frames per second (fps) and 1,000 fps with their Phantom Flex and Phantom Flex 4K cameras.
The result? Not just an ultra-HD video of a firenado… but an ultra-HD video of a firenado in stunning slow motion.”
