The slowmo guys did it:

Although I still enjoy shooting related slow motion video, the novelty is definitely wearing off.  There’s just too much talking and not enough interesting footage.

Thoughts?

Keep telling your mom airsoft is safe:

Wow, right?  All over some plastic BBs.  I didn’t realize people fought over airsoft and paintball, but a quick YouTube search shows it’s definitely taken a lot more serious than I thought.

Airsoft-MemeThis video in the post was actually removed from YouTube initially.  Lucky I watched and saved it ahead of time.  Doesn’t really matter though now that someone else re-upped it. I bet this particular video was removed because someone didn’t want the evidence of them flipping out and hitting people, used against them.  Funny how the fight still seemed to be going on even after the camera cut out.

Thoughts?  Anyone run into this type of thing in their own airsoft or paintball games?

Because they say every word has impact.  3192 paintballs in 5.3 seconds.

Behind the scenes:

Quite epic, as are most things shooting related in slow motion.  The company who produced the video is called VidAngel.  You can stream family filtered movies, tv shows, and popular YouTube videos off their site all without the “bad stuff”.  That’s great and all, because I wouldn’t want any young kid of mine watching Wolf Of Wall Street for example… BUT if you take out all that bad stuff would the movie make any sense at all?  Not at all, so what’s the point?

This is from VidAngel’s site:

Think Wikipedia style collaboration for family-friendly video filters. VidAngel is powered by a volunteer community of avid fans of family-friendly video where members of the community tag potentially offensive swearing, sex and violence in movies, TV shows and YouTube videos. These tags allow viewers to filter what they see and hear based on their personal values and content preferences.

Paintball-Gun-PaintingI’m not a parent, but I’m sure if your kid had no respect for your authority and wanted to go watch Wolf Of Wall Street, he/she could just go to a friends house or download the torrent and watch it on their phone.  This isn’t 1985 anymore… kids have numerous minature devices with screens and so do all their friends.

Cool idea.  Unfortunately it’s only Paintball:

If someone wants to get on the news, they should do this with an AR-15 with shoulder thing that goes up and high capacity assault clip, randomly aimed at a field full of tannerite.

Tweet-Fire-Controlled-Paintball-GuniStrategyLabs is apparently going to post the code to their github once they get all the bugs out of it.  Could be a dangerous move haha.

Yea they are paintball M2 Browning’s, but the video is still really awesome:

The “making of” the video:

Audi-Paintball-ShootoutOh the fun you can have in an empty airplane hangar.  Damn those guys can drive!

That’s actually a half decent looking station wagon. Fast too.

Armed with a paintball handgun, but still it’s not like .22 LR has any more recoil:

Most annoying voice on earth in the video.  2:03 for talk about the arming of the drone.  Ban drones!   I’ve wanted a Parrot AR Drone for a while now but never got around to buying one… maybe this coming summer I’ll look into it more.

If using drones for LOLz and sustenance is more your thing make sure to watch the Burrito Bomber video below:
