Watch Spray Paint Cans Get Hit With a Sledgehammer in Slow Motion


Beloved YouTubers The Slow Mo Guys have found another colorful project to film in slow motion. Donning protective gear and coveralls, the duo decided to attack some cans of spray paint. Using a BB gun, an axe, and a sledgehammer, they explosively open the cans onto an adjacent canvas.

Aerosol cans contain pressurized liquid that, when released, comes out as a mist. Usually, the liquid would be released by pressing a nozzle, but when the cans are hit with various objects, the liquid bursts out in colorful clouds. While this is arguably the coolest way to make spray paint artwork, it's also probably the most dangerous, so don't try this at home.
