Grown man enters giant water balloon and pops it in slow motion

Nothing unusual about this water balloon. Nope.

Here’s another video to add to the “Why would you even do that?” files: An adult man squeezing his entire body into a slowly inflating water balloon.

YouTube‘s Slo Mo Guys filmed the ridiculous stunt in a garden, making sure to get high-quality slow-motion footage of the moment when the balloon burst. When you’re presented with the opportunity to buy a human-sized “climb-in balloon,” what else are you going to do?

Incidentally, whenever anyone in a YouTube video asks, “I wonder if you could drown in that?” the answer is invariably yes.
