    Checkout the Behind the Scenes video of Gordon making the sounds. It's pretty ridiculous.

      @SmarterEveryDay can you blow something up , while shooting the projectile slo-mo camera at it (timing it just at the right time). That would be really cool!

      I have a question. How do fast do you blink in reaction to that explosion?

      SmarterEveryDay . I have a good trick for you to do. I could see that you didn't blink before the tomato hit your face so why don't you see how far you will face is away from the tomato before you blink before it hits you

        Amazing video. Gordon is an awesome sound guy. Very professional. Some people may not know. But this is how alot of movies if not all of them are made. Film the action with a high quality camera then lay over the audio afterwards with high quality sounds.

                                  You can't. You have to make the sounds in post. Saved you 9 minutes.

                                          Im actually super disappointed that you didn't use some sort of slow mo mic. But equally impressed with the skill and personality of Gordon

                                            although the visual is real but with artificial sound effect added, it rather misleading to the science video lover 😥
