Water Ballons Filmed In Slow Motion. What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

The gents at Tested wanted to film a water ballon exploding on someone's face in super slow motion. Of course they did! Slow motion is the best thing. Um, but these nerds are really terrible throwing water ballons.

Either that, or these are some war machine strength balloons because they just won't pop on impact. Luckily, it makes for some outstanding slow-motion screengrab material:

Like, how the hell does a water balloon do this and not pop.

Just because you throw it like a basketball, doesn't mean it's supposed to bounce.

This had to be intentional. The balloons have way less water in them than they should. When I made water balloons as a kid you filled them until the balloon was very tight so they would explode super easy. So either they wanted the slow mo no exploding effect (which looks really cool...especially the first one dropped from the roof that envelops his whole head!) or they wanted to just pelt him with non-exploding water balloons and see how long they could get away with it. No matter what though, I liked it.
