Watermelon explosion - level 2

Watermelon explosion - level 2

05-02-2014 15:00

Two men, who are known as “Slow Mo Guys”, have posted another video on YouTube. It has already gone viral.

They used a large firecracker to explode a watermelon when one of them sat close by. He got covered in its juice and pulp.

The two use a high speed camera that films at 25,000 frames per second. They have filmed various things in slow motion like water balloon fights and golf shots. The guys have been doing this for the past three years.

Difficult words: viral (very popular), firecracker (loud explosive firework), pulp (pieces of fruit),  various (different in kind).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
