The Day After Halloween: Slow Motion Pumpkin Smashing

By Jason Fitzpatrick on November 1st, 2011

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.
