Watermelon explosion in super slow motion

Using a high speed camera that films at 25,000 frames per second, Britons Gavin Free and Daniel Gruchy, known as The Slow Mo Guys, have produced slow motion footage of a watermelon blowing up. The effect is mesmerising.

In the video the pair show you in real-time what the explosion looks like, then repeat the event but in super slow motion.

The Slow Mo Guys are known for filming various objects in slow-motion, including water balloons splitting and golf shots, and their YouTube channel has achieved millions of views.
