A wise man once said “a little bit of summer’s what the whole year’s all about,” and what better way to celebrate the season than with water balloons?

That’s certainly what Dan and Gav—the British YouTubers behind The Slow Mo Guys—thought when dreaming up a concept for their latest video, “6ft Man in 6ft Giant Water Balloon.” The suspense builds as the water balloon grows in size like some creepy latex beast. Slowly, Dan disappears inside of the balloon, and Gav aptly tells him he looks “like a human-sized womb.”

This is one of the funniest and simplest videos I’ve seen in a long time. Two mates hanging out in their backyard with just a hose, a nice camera, and a giant water balloon they bought off the internet for fun. Aside from their banter while the balloon is filling up, the impressive 1,000 frames-per-second recap of the moment everything goes kaboom is unreal.

Look at the way the balloon rips across the side, or how the water maintains the plump shape of the balloon for what seems like an eternity, standing still in midair. It’s like bad graphics from SyFy, only real. I certainly know what my next purchase is going to be!
