Gav: Hello there! I’m Gav.
Dan: I’m Dan. G: Now you may have noticed that: A) we are the Slow Mo Guys, and B) we are very hairy. D: Very hairy. G: I’m half-Italian. What are you? You’re half Italian too?
D: Yeah. G: Between us we are one Italian man. D: I know what to do about that.
G: Yeah? D: Got a microwave waxing kit here…
G: Yeah. D: How about we do something about it and wax, and film it in slow mo? G: Have you ever wanted to see hairs fly off of skin in super slow mo? D: I have actually, yeah.
G: Me too. D: I think it’d be disgusting. Should we find out-
G: It’ll be filth. D: Ha, filth?!
G: Let’s film it. G: Thoughts? D: I don’t wanna wax my leg. G: Well it’s high up. No one’s gonna see it. D: What, here?
G: Yeah. D: Well I got a bit of a tan here. G: Well, it’s because you wear short shorts! D: Yeah!
G: It’s not Italy in the eighties, B. D: Yeah, but I’m wearing short shorts, so I don’t want one patch of skin, just like… D: People will think I’ve got, square alopecia, on my leg! D: (Oh God.) G: Alright, you ready? D: Go for it. *Ripping sound* D: Aaaah! Bugger! G: *laughing*
D: [more cries of pain] D: Look at my legs, they’re all red…
G: That’s not bad! G: That’s very good. That’s incredible! D: (even more cries of pain) G: Okay, well that’s a decent-looking shot but I want to get a lot closer, just to see if I can see individual hairs. Now sadly I don’t have a macro lens and this lens’ minimum focus is about here, and I want to be focusing here. Now, not the end of the world there’s a trick you can do. You just pull the lens off, flip it around try to cover the hole as best you can, not let any light in. And now my minimum focus is around here D: *weird scoff* What?!
G: It’s a nifty trick. D: I didn’t know that was a thing.
G: (Yeah.) D: That’s impressive, I actually learned something, that’s cool. G: (Yeah.)
D: Alright. G: Now the downside is I can’t actually use this focus ring anymore, or the aperture, so I’m going to have to preset those, and then just tilt in and out with the actual camera itself. D: And push the button.
G: And trigger the camera, so it’s a bit of a mission this one but we’ll see what we can get. D: That’s cool. Hope it works.
G: (Yeah.) D: 3, 2 1- *ripping sound* [cry of pain] D: Ready?
G: Ok, hit it! D: [more cries of pain!] G: Dan, it’s always you who gets all the fun.
D: Fun?! G: Yep.
D: It’s all waxed. Look at my legs, would ya? G: I wanna get waxed.
D: Alright. Get ready. G: Here we go. Swath it there. D: Swath it?
G: Smash it. D: K, ready?
G: Yep. D: 1, 2 3- *ripping sound*
[Cry of pain, now from Gav] G: [laughing crying pain sound noise thing]
D: Pretty swift? G: It really does hurt.
D: Yeah [in a “duh” tone of voice]
G: (God.) G: Well Dan, that was just as disgusting as I hoped it’d be.
D: And painful.
G: And painful. G: Yours is bleeding. D: Yeah a little tiny bits of blood. G: Mine is…
D: Oh, looks like chicken skin- G: Mine looks like a plucked chicken.
D: It does! G: Yours looks like…blood beef. D: Ugh. I don’t wanna do that ever again.
G: *laughs* D: People are gonna give me such weird looks. G: The most amazing thing to me about that, aside from the hair getting plucked out, is how the skin just hovers up in the air after it’s been plucked, like there’s so much give in the skin, and ripples so much.
D: In slow mo it lasts so much longer, so it looks like the skin is completely distorted for ages. It’s weird. G: It forms a hump. Then eventually settles back down. That was quite cool. Very fascinating D: Yeah.
