Art Hit-Or-Miss

Watch A Mouse Trap Rip Through A Hot Dog In Slow Motion

I’m a sucker for anything shown in slow motion. Maybe it’s because I grew up watching sports and could spend hours gawking at Vince Carter slowly spinning in the air for dunks.

Who knew the slow motion art could transition so beautifully to food, as we’ve seen popcorn pop in super slow motion, Coke cans explode dramatically slow, and even models hop on Skittles-filled trampolines.

Now we get to witness something a bit obscure, as YouTube channel Warped Perception posted a video of a hot dog being slowly sliced with a mouse trap.

Warped Perception has built a rep for this kind of slow motion food art, and recorded this one at 147,000 frames per second, which makes it look really dramatic.

As a man with his mind in the gutter, this video actually made cringe and reminded me of threats from crazy ex-girlfriends. I’ll let you figure out those threats on your own, but in the mean time, enjoy the beauty of this video.

Popcorn Popping In Super Slow-Mo Is The Most Beautiful Thing You’ll See Today

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.
