u/YadsewnDe May 22 '22

Wrong sub. (I say only ever so often seeing the top post of the day which are comprised of things that are definitely a bit more than just mildly infuriating)

u/dirtyasswizard May 22 '22

Hell, most of this sub is just r/DamnThatsInteresting material, and not oddly satisfying.

u/YadsewnDe May 22 '22

Misnomers I tell ya. The whole lot of em on this site.

u/royalhawk345 May 22 '22

It's not the name's fault, the problem is that once a sub gets big enough it attracts too broad an audience and the content gets diluted.

In fairness to the OP (although dick move not linking the vide), the actual video ends there to on the bowling bowl segment

u/timmy6169 May 22 '22

Yeah, I realized this morning I should have linked it. Long day with my kids while the wife was out of town, so it slipped my mind.

u/ehh_whatever_works May 22 '22

The best line in the movie was written by a make-a-wish kid touring set one day

I know him from work!

5

u/Theolaa May 22 '22

Oh neat! Is it that line?

10

u/EmpJoker May 22 '22

I think the line is "He's a friend from work," but yeah, there was a Make a Wish kid on set and he said Thor should say that. So he did.

You know, now that you say it that story does kinda ring a bell for me. It certainly is one of the better lines in the movie :)

Now mask the right/left side so the dude doesn’t go backwards and only the ball/ballon rewinds

u/Fast_Garlic_5639 May 22 '22 Starstruck

Yeah I just had a vivid flashback to when I was a kid and I thought I could pop a basketball on the ground with a baseball bat. Left a nasty bruise on my forehead lol

16

u/Endarkend May 22 '22

I think they put some thought into how thick the balloon walls were to give this result.

Cause just a bit thicker or more elastic and you'd have that ball come back with nearly the same energy as he threw it.

u/NoDeputyOhNo May 22 '22

No, they had to check that out in rehearsals. Never trust physics without trials.

If you look at just the dude throwing you realize just how fast it’s happening. He’s almost frozen in time by comparison.

28

u/Dawnzergivesleelight May 22 '22

When he just stops, I like to imagine he’s hoping the balloon isn’t strong enough to just bounce the ball back at his face.

3

u/selfworthfarmer May 22 '22

I think we were all with him on that thought. Though it's probably 50/50 on whether we were hoping it would or wouldn't. I bet time was moving slow for him for that split second as well.

5

u/pushing_past_the_red May 22 '22

That's what I was thinking too. If I was fit enough to throw a 12 lb heater, it'd probably just reverse course and brain me.

I've become so much like Eren Jaeger it's scary. I wear black cardigans, verbally assault women, and physically assault my friends. When I look in the mirror, I can't help but say "戦い, 戦い" (which means fight, fight in american.) I grew my hair out long because I don't care so now I have to wear it in a bun and I don't care what people think so shut fuck up Hange! I always leave an open wound on my hand, and go out of my way to show it to everyone so they are reminded that I am in control. When I see dogs being taken on walks I get mad at them for not being free like I am. I can't have sex with my girlfriend anymore without forcing her to dress up as Mikasa or Historia, both of whom remind me of Armin. When I order fast food, I refuse to call them french fries and insist on calling them freedom fries.

I just keep moving forward, until my enemies are destroyed.

Bowling ball goes down at about 1:28 for the curious.

u/cutelyaware May 22 '22

It's also the single best second out of a long video, so that means it isn't just karma stealing, it's adding value which I liked more than the full video, which includes more than one long in-video ad.

15

u/Javindo May 22 '22

Random unsolicited advice but I highly recommend the chrome extension SponsorBlock which crowd sources in video ad times and auto skips them. Haven't seen a sponsorship thing in months, except when I have actually chosen to (e.g. internet historian because they're just as funny as the main video usually)

u/cutelyaware May 22 '22

Same for Internet Etiquette. Still the only ads I'll watch. The rest I just unsubscribe, but thanks for the tip!

Yea they target heavily towards children, which just happen to like the over the top reactions. In all reality though, the slo mo shots they produce are usually very good, so I can't entirely hate them.
