    At this point why not just get fully waxed, get a Brazilian too.

    Every Now and then there was a hair that resisted and stayed behind, and it annoyed me so much I wanted to wax Dan again myself just to get them.

    I was NOT prepared for the sounds! That hair pinging back made the most satisfying sound. Top video guys!

    I really didn't like how the hair just pinged back. Grim

    Huh. Gav's accent is slipping. He's picking up just the faintest bit of a Texas drawl.

    That looks even more painful in slow mo.

    Yup, that was some pretty filthy footage. I liked the slow mo sound of the hairs breaking free but definitely didn't need to see the reverse slow mo at the end of the hairs going back in; utterly grotesque.

    The "boing" at 3:37 should be an error noise on computers.

    It kind of sounded like super nasty bubblewrap.

    I think Gav rearranged the order of the slow mo shots and explanation looking at Dan's leg... or my eyes are going to shit.

    The sound seems like there's a cannon going off for each tribute in the Hunger Games. Only in this case, the Hairy Games.

      probably something they did in post to give it better contrast

      Gav has explained this before. It has to deal with frame rate and exposure. I think he explains it in the tupperware video and in a video on the second channel

      Its just from how slow he makes it. The more something is slowed down, the less light is in the shot, so anything not in direct focus loses color depth.

    Holy, the sounds of the hairs being pulled sounds terrifying. Especially after hearing how those were edited afterwards. So much work, so much pain...

    Nice trick.

    Neat that Gavin takes part in the event.  It has been a while.

    That last bit, at the end... is easily the most disturbing part.

    it's the sound effects that does it for me, fucking hilarious. Especially when one of Dan's hairs is perfectly in focus as you watch as it springs and curls back the Sound effect for it.... fucking had me.

    So we know the phantom doesnt pick up sound.


    This is bubble wrap being popped yeah?

      Gav said in a video (an Off Topic I think?) that he edited in the sound after the fact.

      Yeah for years we know that the Phantom doesn't pick up sound. Gav said it on The RT podcast ages ago

    It's amazing how Gavin can be so dumb sometimes and other times is a bloody genius. His knowledge of cameras is impressive.

      I would argue that knowledge of how something works is different from actually being smart. If I spent hours and hours making and editing videos, always looking up and learning new ways to accomplish what I wanted, I'm sure I'd know a lot about cameras and cool tricks you can do with them too. But common sense and logical reasoning are different. You actually need to think for those, and Gavin rarely does so.

    Okay, as interesting as that was to watch, the popping sounds were by far the creepiest part of it. They're so magnified in slow-mo its disturbing

      I believe Gav said that they use Foley for the sound effects, as the actual sounds would be too distorted at the speeds to recognize.

    Great sound design on this one. The plucking sounds for the individual hairs was great

      Gav has said that they often record months worth of videos in a short period, due Gav being in US, and Dan being in the UK.  This could have been recorded quite a while ago.

    It was interesting seeing the reaction delay when gavin did it. Makes me wonder if it's possible to record the nervous system and see the 'messages' moving around in it.
