Diving Into 1,000 Mouse Traps on a Trampoline Looks Even More Painful in Slo-Mo

High-speed cameras help make cars safer, factories run smoother, and athletes improve their performances. But The Slow Mo Guys have found an even better use for the technology: capturing the explosive chain reaction after diving onto a trampoline covered in 1,000 armed mouse traps.

Filmed at 1,000 frames per second, it took The Slow Mo Guys over four hours to set the whole thing up. And while the results look extremely painful, especially in slow motion, the stunt apparently didn’t end up hurting as much as you’d expect. That being said, trying something like this at home is probably a dumb idea—but not as dumb as diving into 1,000 mouse traps without wearing safety goggles.
