Watch vinyl records be spun ’round incredibly fast and then SHATTERED in slow-motion!!!

/ by

The Slow Mo Guys spun some records ’round very, very fast and captured them shattering in slow motion at 12,500 fps with their VERY high speed Phantom v2640 camera!!! 

LOOK!!! It’s a “record-breaking” feat!!!

    They are killed by an unusual speed … However, the moment of defragmentation (or “explosion”) of a vinyl disk is so beautiful and dramatic that I have no strength to reproach the experimenters for cruelty. Thank you, Pee-wee!

  • Wowzers! Paul, what an amazing blog. I enjoyed watching the video of how these vinyl records are spun I loved the music during the slow motion shattering of them it sounded similar to a band called AMP and their album AstralMoonBeanProjections (its album is Red color looks like mars,) they are Dream pop or Shoe-Gazer genre of music I enjoy listening to, have for years now.. thank you for making my day wonderful I hope you have a great day! 💜♥️💛💚❤️🧡💙
