This video has no sound and that’s a good thing; Jello dropping onto a flat surface in slow motion needs nothing else to be entertaining. They’ll need to be played a few times, but the Kid Should See this water balloon pop and this popcorn pop, too.
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 (for you adults) on The Colbert Report in March.
We watched a lot of Jello-related videos after this one. My favorite was this promo illustrating the physics behind General Electric’s hybrid locomotives. My 3 year old co-curator liked it, too, but felt this one was more fun. (He’s right.)
