Watch an Air Pistol Pellet Slice the Flame of a Candle in Slow Motion

It takes The Slow Mo Guys a few attempts and false starts to hit the burning wick of a candle with an air gun. But when they actually do, it’s damn impressive to see in slow motion, because it basically vaporizes on impact and the candle’s flame follows the bullet in a wonderful, fiery trail until it disappears.


There are few things better to see in slow motion than a weapon being fired to put out, well, fire. The air pistol pellet couldn’t have hit the flame any better.
