This video has no sound and that’s a good thing; Jell-O dropping onto a flat surface in slow motion needs nothing else to be entertaining. 

Slo-mo Jello videos aren’t rare on YouTube, but this one was made by the Modernist Cuisine: The Art of Science and Cooking team, whose $625 set of books was featured on The Colbert Report in March. 

They’ll need to be played a few times, but the kid should see this water balloon pop and this popcorn pop, too.

There’s more Jell-O, more popcorn, and more slow motion in the archives.
