Swim Cap Trick in Slow Motion

The Slow Mo Guys: Swim Cap Trick in Slow Motion

Summer is well on the way! With it, Gav and Dan show you how to save time when you bung on your swimming cap. Then, they show you what it looked like in lovely slow motion. Kind of defeats the purpose of doing it fast in the first place, to be honest.

    dear Gavin and Dan
    I don't know if you two know this yet but one of your Slow Mo Guys videos has appeared on a True TV show called Top Funniest in the weird section of the episode Ridiculous Antics. The video was soggy flappy faces in slow motion.

    Swimmer for years (collegiate even). The swim cap trick is fine; but not the best method for getting the cap lined up the way it needs to go. I do enjoy watching them try this out, though. Love the Slow Mo Guys.

    The years of swimming made me frustrated with the first few takes. It's just a minor thing but you're supposed to just let go of the cap. Leading up to each drop Gavin raised and lowered his arms just enough to throw the cap down instead of it just dropping when he released it.

    Also while it is funny to watch, putting a cap on like that ruins it faster :/

    ow, I know that of getting your head smacked against the side of the swimming pool. Dat hurts. I hope he didn't hurt his cranium at all :P

    Looks like the ending of this video was one of the first things recorded in the new AH office. A very empty games shelf behind him.

    I swim competitively and can say that that is NOT the proper way to put on a racing cap. But everyone does it at meets anyways.
    It does look better in slow motion.

    The premise of this didn't seem as interesting as some of the other SMG videos, but this made me laugh harder than many of the previous ones :D
