Watching anything in slow motion gives it a little more drama and excitement, but watching food, specifically, move in slow motion creates a sense of art that’s ultimately pleasing to the eye.
Case in point, Warped Perception’s video of popcorn popping at 30,000 frames per second, which is slow enough for you to appreciate the moment that kernel fully develops.
Unlocking the mysterious process of popcorn popping is interesting in itself, as it’s usually in a bag or Jiffy Pop container when it takes place, but seeing it done in 4K slow-mo is extra special.
In the vid, you get to see the kernel’s shell slowly break open, as the fluffy corn expands like a rose in full bloom.
It’s definitely beautiful, and extra dramatic with the background music.
