What happens when you wrap a watermelon with 500 rubber bands? If you’re recording it with an ultra slow-motion camera, you get this sweet video of the resulting explosion.

Gavin and Dan, the two gentleman behind The Slow Mo Guys, were inspired by this Japanese video of rubber band fueled Watermelon explosion and thus caught their own fruit-exploding-hijinks with their slow-mo camera.
