We used a pressurized vacuum cannon to get the golf ball up to speeds of over 500 miles per hour.

    Watching this makes me realize I need a new sound effect (aside from squealing like a school girl) when I see something really cool happen.

  2. BigJesse says:

    A sword. Put a sword in front of it. It’ll be epic for sure.

    • BigJesse says:

      +Daniel Curtin Not as cool as a sword though.

    • blivvy says:

      High speed footage of cutting – doesn’t matter what with – could actually be interesting. Start with like… chef with kitchen knife cutting veges. Then step up to splitting a log with an axe or something. Then try high speed of sword vs. melon. Then test all the different bladed implements by firing gold balls out of your vacuum cannon at them 😛 All in high speed.

    • Eric Michel says:

      BigJesse – I think so too, as I wonder how much deformation the sword would incur as it slices through the ball.

    • Ben Stankiewicz says:

      Yes yes, or a sheet of hardware cloth, wire, 3/16 inch square

    There’s your problem. You caught it too low on the face. That’ll really hurt distance.

  7. Bert Visscher says:

    I’ve tried Wix, but they use JavaScript which some people block.

  11. Johan Andersson says:

    Super interesting that the golf ball is stronger than the club!

    Evolution: *Makes strong wall so predators don’t eat it*
    Youtubers: 1,000,000,000 mph GOLFBALL VS WATERMELON

    • Rafael Santos says:

      +Claire Gregg yes they do…? Watermelons get eaten, as do the watermelon plants. Sure it might be beneficial to them under the right conditions (getting eaten by an animal that’s unable to digest watermelon seeds for example), but plants get constantly attacked by all kinds of predators, like insects and microorganisms.

    • professional labelmaker says:

      I can’t believe seven people came out here taking this comment seriously

    • Myles Russell says:

      7 people don’t have a sense of humour 😂

    • Thomas Thornton says:

      It is advantageous for a watermelon to be eaten because its seeds will be spread. Thats why they are naturally sweet (obviously they weren’t as sweet as they are now, but we started eating them for a reason) because they want animals to eat them and spread their seeds.

    Really amazing how the slow Mo cam shows reality from a different perspective!
    Cool friend circle!

  14. Puddi Panda says:

    All that power hitting a golf ball, and I’d still miss the hole :p

    Also, that’s a new hole-in-one… a hole in the ball 😮

  15. glassjaw624 says:

    Better send those drivers back to the manufacture and tell them to make something that can handle your 1000 mph swing.

  17. Ben Weichert says:

    That watermelon explosion was WICKED!!!

  18. Throttle Dude says:

    I threw 40 lb dumbells on a golf ball plenty of times and the dumbells just bounced up into the air. The golf ball didn’t even crack but I broke a dumbell.
