Announcing: Daily Drop (a new DAILY series)

Postby Graham » 04 Oct 2010, 10:51

We're thrilled (thrilled!) to announce our newest video series.
It may not be "comedy" but it sure is awesome!

Daily Drop
Dropping a new item, in glorious 2000fps high speed, every weekday!

Check out the trailer here:

Now, we're still shooting tomorrow, so if you have a suggestion... well, we've probably thought of it, but still!
Suggest it here, today, and we'll try to get to it.

We're very excited about this. Who doesn't like super-slo-mo?!?

Also, this makes six video series you currently produce.

It'd be really tough to reproduce but I'd love to see "Bill's Revenge" get dropped... or atleast a jello mold.

Things I'm sure you've thought of:

A water balloon.
A frozen water balloon
An ice cream cone
A can of soda
A SNES
A laptop
A washing machine
A pair of glasses
A slingshot
A bathroom scale
A wedding cake
A Lavos

What camera exactly are you shooting this on?

I'm guessing you've already dropped several cakes, steaks, and every other food item you could get your hands on. Alarm clock too.

You could always drop more water-balloon condoms.

What I want to see dropped is a high speed camera, or if at all possible, a gatso on drugs. This here is where there would be a segway if I'd be bothered to think something up. Anyway, I can't see the whole concept having much longevity without becoming something completely different, but then again if it's only supposed to run for twenty-and-a-bit episodes that's alright.

This is a witty sign-off.

QI said something to the affect that if you drop two objects at the same time they will always land at the same time because of the laws of physics. Is that true.

So now it's something like 6 series a week, is the grand plan still to make LRR your full time job?

I loved the music you used in the teaser. Drop a jar of pickles, a feather, or the ball.

And their dream as stated many times in their podcasts would be to make LRR a full time job.

It's true, but when dropping them in atmosphere they have to have the same cross section as they fall, so both experience equal air resistance. This is why it is most commonly percieved that objects of lighter mass fall slower, as they are more easily acted on by the force of air resistance (which increases with velocity). All objects experience the same acceleration when falling, as for a small 'test' mass ( a mass which is small in comparison to the attractive object) gravitational attraction is independant of the falling object's mass. Dropping objects in a vaccum will prove this. You can also use balls of the same size, one solid and one empty, to prove the theory in atmosphere.

Tada!

The dramatic finale of a season is the "Camera We're Filming This On" Edition. However, that will most likely cost many, many lots of monies.

Add another vote for A Lavos, too! And Theremin, how do you know that isn't the SEVENTH series being worked on as we speak? LoadingReadyRun: After Dark.

6 series a week? ENN, LRR, Unskippable, crapshot and the daily drop. Did you guys count Phailhaüs? What am I missing?

I counted Phailhaus, but even without it that's still an impressive number.

You should drop an old phone with a camera whilst its recording a video, then see if you can extract the video from the wreckage.
