Gav and Dan learn about tranquilizer dart physics using slow mo as a helpful tool. Don't try this at home unless you have 400lb gorilla running at full clip towards you. Watch outtakes here!

How a Tranquilizer Dart Works in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys



  • Just remember. This is the same Gavin from achievement hunter 😂😂 it’s like 2 different people

  • Why do you upload videos in PAL (50 fps), although you live in North America?

  • Shoot bugs with the Bug Assault salt gun in slo mo

  • It would have been even better if it was done in a balistics gel

  • you should have shot it in ballistics gel

  • Are they brothers or friends

  • You guys get 3000 FPS when I get 60 fps on fortnite playing on xbox

  • Everything runs so quickly around us and we waste so much of time and not even care about it.

  • Can you guys do a slo mo comparison of stone vs tempered glass and ceramic/porcelain vs tempered glass. It would be nice to see how the hardness scale works in slow motion.

  • Classic Dan

  • Introducing *”Lethal Bagpipes”*

  • Woaaaaaaahhh

  • Bull whip in slow motion next video

  • 8.51

  • I thought I saw Dan in a philadelphia advert

  • Make a slow mo video on pressing keyboard key on PC and response of key in monitor

  • dan looks like sal from a different timeline.

  • Anyone else squirming at there seat coz they have a fear of needles? No, just me? Okei . . . 😰

  • Awesome video :) Have you tried water cymatics. There is a channel called "Journey to Curiosity" that turns water droplets into shapes using sine waves and different frequencies. And another channel called "cymaticmusic" that demonstrates this. Would look so awesome in super slow mo.

  • Shoot one into ballistics gelatin

  • Should've shot it into a bottle of water so that we could see the dye eject into the bottle

  • turbulent to laminar transition, a real textbook quality

  • You should do the balloon shot again, with tape on the balloon, and a clear balloon, so it doesn't pop and you can see the liquid inject into it like an organ.

  • Actually it’s prlly fake

  • Do a phone laying flat with a ring of steel wool around it and call the phone and see if it works

  • Waiting to see nail growth at 390 000 fps

  • 7:10

  • Guys, can you try these experiments in SlowMo for us?😊 Please, it seems Amazing...

  • Are you guys still with Rooster Teeth?

  • do a dog wagging its tail

  • Main content starts at 6:16. Slow-mo at 7:20. Frame by frame at 8:34. Balloon burst at 11:00.

  • Too much painful 😱

  • Barely understood a word he said in the explanatory bit but who cares

  • Awesome video!!! kinda wishing you had done a ballistics gelatin test too, would've really shown it going into "flesh"

  • if possible i think a video of length contraction would be unreal, with that 10 trillion fps camera.

  • When I saw the title of this video I genuinely feared for Dan. Usually he’s the recipient of these experiments.

  • Where do you get tranquilizers? Actually kinda wondering


  • 8:50 nsfw lol

    • This is why kids can’t get flu shots.

  • 3:55 “you’ve got to give it more beans!” I’m using that now

  • I have a problem with needles so watching this was hard

  • Loved this. This answers my Tranquilizing an animal question

  • This does not help with the fact I'm getting injections next week...

  • You missed the opportunity at 09:38 to coin the term "Tyrannosaurus Tranquilizer".

  • Make a tornado in slow mo

  • wtf

  • This would be amazing to see in your super slow, Crystal clear style. (Iron fist thrown around a hanging magnet).

  • "troll hair thing" What if darts are just trolls in disguise?

  • Me thinking Dan was gonna be tranqed

  • He reminds me of Q from impractical jokers

  • nobody gonna talk about that bass drum on top of the shelves

  • I’ve decided to share a nightmare I had last night in a minimal length comment I have been watching so many slo mo guys videos and one way or another I ended up having a nightmare where I witness dan and gav driving and getting robbed then before they could do anything about it gav got “pewed” in the head and my brain imagined it very realistic and... in slow motion. It was traumatic

  • I wanted super slow mo, I mean they took a projectile from a tank in slow mo

  • This is why kids can’t get flu shots.

  • Useless! What a drag!

  • Verry discriptive

  • Ya should do a collaboration with Cam Hanes archery skills.

  • Blue liquid my favorite color

  • 13 million subs Impressive Waoh
