Why is a piano
the classic thing that falls down
every time as well? Why is that? I feel like we’re just
oddly inspired by cartoons. Three, two, one, go! ( theme music playing ) Hello, I’m Gav. I’m Dan. Welcome to
the “Super Slow Show.” When we were deciding
what to drop from our immense 80-foot crane, we were thinking
of different items. You know, you got to
pick something relatable. Something that everyone sees. Maybe something from
a living room. And then I thought
why don’t we just drop
a living room? Yeah. So here we are. I’m really quite impressed
at this, to be honest. It’s lovely. The lights even work. Well, this picture– what? I may have sourced
the pictures. Why is yours normal? That’s not
the picture I gave them. I may have overridden
the picture you sent. I say mod cons,
but that TV is probably from the early ’90s,
I think. We know full well that
old TVs smash way better. That’s true. All that matters,
though, is we’ve got sweets and comfy chairs. Rather lovely. I might just take a minute. and have a nice chillsy. ( creaking ) Whoa there!
Not yet! Not yet! All right, let’s get out. Do you know what’s
an odd sight? I was just about to say that.
That is not normal. I mean, what floor is that? It’s like dropping a
story from eight stories. I think it’s about
eight stories. Or something like that,
isn’t it? I mean, is it all going
to fall at the same time? Is the room gonna
fall first, and then… Hopefully, we’ll just get
some flying furniture. Three, two, one, drop! Oh, God! Man! Should we check to see
if that’s still a room? Yes, yes. The floor may have caved
in just slightly. Oh, yeah. Oh, it’s because of the TV,
where the TV was. The TV was so heavy that it
bowed the floor where it stood. You see that? The mirror broke. That’s another
seven for you. Why for me? Well, don’t you get
all the bad luck? I did say three, two, one. That’s fair. Oh, there’s
sweets everywhere. Look. Your picture’s
fallen out. Oh, no! How would you care to
take a look at some of
that playback, Dan? Absolutely. I’m intrigued to
see what happened. Hmm. – Look at that!
– Flare! Gav:
I never thought I would see
the sun bounce off a mirror in a falling room
into my eyes. Think about that photon
that came from the sun and hit that mirror
in a falling room. And then hit the sensor
on the Phantom. Mental. I like that the only
thing that’s lifted is the cushion
by about an inch. Everything else has just
stayed exactly where it was. This one actually
doesn’t show much. But I love how surreal
this shot is. Gav: All right.
Here’s the lovely close-up. Dan: Whoa! All the furniture’s
sunk into the floor. The mirror went.
The light went. Gav: The feet from the chair
just goes straight
through the floor. Dan: I like how
everything here on the
walls is coming down. And everything that was
in the room is now going up. Gav: Yeah. It’s like when you drop a room,
they meet in the middle. Yeah. Yeah. Dan: The TV didn’t break.
It just sort of smashed a bit. I feel like that living room didn’t really represent
our personalities. There’s no toilet? Well, be weird
in the living room. – Fair.
– Just feel like it
wasn’t classy enough. So I’ve arranged
just a little sweetener. – Okay.
– Let’s get behind
the blast shield. Ooh. Three, two, one, go! Oh! Very briefly, the room was
significantly classed up. One microsecond later,
back to normal. I love how such an intricate
instrument is just so delicate. And then suddenly–
why is a piano the classic thing that falls
down every time as well? Why is that? I feel we’re just oddly
inspired by cartoons. Yeah. Let’s go and check the keys, Does it still function? No. – So that’s what
it looked like.
– Yeah. To be fair, you said you
hadn’t seen a room before. Yeah. I’ve definitely seen
a piano falling before. Pianos often fall. They do for some reason. It’s just a classic. Either that, or a big safe. Yeah. Quite pretty,
the background. Oh! Tipped well forward! Gav: The thing is,
it’s so top-heavy that it landed like
jam on toast does. It always lands
the jam side down. Dan: Always is keys
down on a piano. Gav: Yeah. Not a bad aim. That’s probably where
I would have put it. – Dan: In the room?
– Oh, maybe not on the couch. I’d have put it slightly
to the side, I think. The mirror took
it even more. That’s your bad
luck now. Eh, it was
already broken. Oh, God. Dan: So the room is
classy… now. Gav: Pure class. – Ruined.
– Oh, ruined. Much better. – Yeah.
– Yeah. Cool. Not a bad way
to watch the sunset. A little bit breezier
in this room than it was. – Panoramic views,
– Yeah. Why did you drop
the piano on my chair?
Yours is pretty much intact. It was an accident.
I mean, I got clipped
a little bit. Nothing left of yours. Well, this is
a sweet, here. Yeah. Hopefully, you enjoyed
that video. Feel free to subscribe
to the Slow Mo Guys. And we’ll see you
in the next episode
of the “Super Slow Show.” Yeah. Whoa! You all right there? Hello.
Gav here. I’m Dan. Click here to watch Dan get
slammed by pro wrestlers. I have no memory of that. You may have landed
on your head just a bit. Is that why I woke up
in the woods? No comment.
