Everything is usually way cooler in slow-motion. An amazing football catch, a kick-ass movie fight scene, a gravity-defying skateboard trick—but apparently that logic doesn’t apply to some dude sticking his tongue in a loaded mouse trap. If you don’t cringe in horror when watching this, then you’re not human.

You can’t help but feel a little sad for the The Slow Mo Guys who have apparently run out of things to shoot or blow up in front of their high-speed camera. But then again, don’t pretend you haven’t always been a little bit curious about what sticking your tongue in a mouse trap might feel like. It turns out, worse than you could have possibly imagined.
