Watermelon Explosion – level 1

27-07-2018 15:00

Two men make videos and upload them on YouTube. They use a special camera. The camera films things in slow motion.

The men have a new video. It is already very popular. In the video, they blow up a watermelon. One of the men sits close to it. He is covered by pieces of the watermelon!

The men do this for three years. They film different types of things.

Difficult words: upload (put), slow motion (things move slow in the video), blow up (explode).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
