Coke & Butane = Slow Motion Rockets - The Slow Mo Guys 4K

Team Trees still going strong! Let's plant 20,000,000 trees!
In this video Gav and Dan attempt to land a coke bottle on the moon using a bit of butane. They came 238,899.99 miles short but it was a good effort. Follow us on Instagram! gavinfree

Coke & Butane = Slow Motion Rockets - The Slow Mo Guys


  • Hello, I'm mind. And I'm gab. Mind the Gab ! :-)

  • I thought the title said “cocaine and butane”

  • slomo suggestion: aluminium + water explosion

  • These guys use a huge press to make a brass bar explode! You should slow mo metals fracturing and or exploding!

  • Would you be able to ignite te butane as is launches?

  • How to achieve light speed (Just and idea a very stupid idea) Take coke put it in a rocket put a hole in bottom of rocket flip rocket add stuff and boom same as a coke rocket ITS A JOKE

  • The ol steak trick

  • If you guys try liquid nitrogen, will it be faster?

  • how about yall capture various metals and objects being crushed by a pneumatic press or something similar?

  • Coke and butane vs diet Coke and mentos...

  • You should have been able to hold and turn the 2 liter one handed.

  • I love you

  • I put the video to 0.25x speed to have 4000x slower slomo

  • You should try to make holes in caps in different size and check if this would make it fly better.

  • I want your camera😍

  • 🙂🙂interesting~

  • Who's having TKOR flashbacks? RIP Grant 😭

  • Add fins!

  • What happens if you put the cap back on and then flip it

  • Put the cap in then do it again, explode

  • what happens if you cover the mouth of the bottle with thin plastic wrap maybe with a tiny hole to allow the vapor to escape without popping the cover off.

  • has anyone put a telescope on a high speed camera and filmed the transit of the ISS. It would probably show a better view of the space station than a regular camera would.

  • Ants have entered the chat

  • Dan looked like big chungus

  • Should've put guidance fins or something on it.

  • At 1:56 Dan just gives a middle finger to everyone watching

  • you should try this one on slowmo !

  • should try putting the cap on and then flipping it

  • watch my videos and subscribers you! otherwise super !!!

  • 1:05-1:08 DEMONITIZED

  • If from Inter. Space Station see a bottle with coke in orbit NOW you KNOW WHO is responsible ! 😁

  • Now light one on fire

  • What a good explanation of what happens! Thanks for uploading!

  • That facial expression: Captain Haddock's butler, in Tintin.

  • so that’s how they got onto the moon!

  • 5:23 hahaha

  • The narrowing shape of the bottle causes the pressure to go down, and the speed or kinetic energy of the fluid goes up. So it moves faster, and with more force, but the pressure is actually less.

  • Awesome guys.

  • Drill 10 mm hole in cap and put cap back on bottle before flipping it. Hmmmm.

  • Shouldn't it be a Diet Coke?

  • Should keep the cap on...

  • Did you film this in HDR? Such dim brights and such bright shadows!

  • Should make a rocket out of one of those

  • Dan & Gav, you guys should revisit this episode and add a fire ring for the bottle to pass through. Perhaps film it at night.

  • c'est génial j'adore

  • Through the nozzle, the static pressure drops as the velocity increases. The force generated by the coke exiting the bottle causes a reaction on the bottle to project it into the sky.

  • Kreosan on ultra graphic)

  • Venturi DECREASES the pressure and increases the velocity.

  • Wait is gav from RT I was just watching the animated shorts. If he is wow he sounds smarter with a lab coat on haha.

  • Should have put a lazy Susan on a stick with some nails or screws in it to hold the bottle for cleaner takeoffs

  • Q is that you?

  • Fantastic 🔥💪🏼 you guys best!

  • A couple ideas! The wheel on a car at different speeds, the turbine on a jet engine, a knife cutting through skin, wheel on a dragster, a pressure washer cleaning concrete, and a lazer disc DVD player. I think all of these would be interesting slo mo vids. Thanks guys!

  • Love that you mentioned Team Rocket!

  • Hey! Great job on playing the guards in “A Heist with Markiplier”! Funny

  • How much butane to send Ryan flying?

  • Slightly disappointed you didn't do one with the lid on...

  • Try to fire the gas! Of course not launching from hands :)

  • if you attach little wings and a sharp nose to the bottle you get a nice rocket
