The Day After Halloween: Slow Motion Pumpkin Smashing

It’s the day after Halloween and hundreds of thousands of Jack O’ Lanterns begin their march towards the trash. Some, however, met a spectacular slow-motion end in this 2000 fps video.

Trash cans, compost piles, chucked into the woods, discarded Jack O’ Lanterns meet their end in all sorts of dull and unceremonious ways. In the above video, filmed at a fantastic 2000 frames-per-second, we see pumpkins smashed in smooth slow motion.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.
