  • taam skaat and quaniujaarpaat?

  • EW but cool🤣🤣🤣

  • *SQUAWK* Pyrotechnics! Like if you get the funny reference! Take pride in your knowledge of the highest calibre of cartoons.

  • Directed by "Michael Bay"

  • Well that’s one way of disposing leaves.

  • Heh! Boom-Boom Room!

  • If Aphex Twin had a SEnewss channel

  • Brilliant

  • the title of the video updates

  • imagine if the plate came back to earth but the bread was gone and it had a note saying: Thanks for the meal humans!! -Aliens

  • why wont the title load

  • Is my screen 3 years later, that can display in 4K showing me this pink

  • So a Molotov cocktail with extra steps

  • Still 100% spot on for me

  • Didn't flinch... still blinked though.

  • The real explosive lifted all the leaves in the forest floor. The cinematic one just set a few of them on fire...

  • Always program for the future. You and your customers will thank you for it. Oh and KISS. Keep It Stupid Simple.

  • Thanks! I now know how to make an explosive fireball.

  • They all look better than AEW

  • 💙💙💙

  • Very cool!

  • This bread was more successful than NASA and SpaceX

  • This guy talking made me check whether I forgot my playback speed set to 1.25x

  • This cheesy grin feels kinda Joker-ish

  • I wouldn't call it a "cheesy grin" that was more mischievous, fit the situation perfectly

  • The amount of zip lock bags and duct tape makes it feel like a commercial

  • working fine still mate

  • No.... the cheesy grin was DEFINITELY the right call!

  • copy and paste this : Cοn

  • 1:19 "In general you will at least have: Integer" JavaScript has left the chat

  • SEnewss just recommended me this...almost 10 years ago wow

  • Disposable

  • This is brilliant!!!!

  • hear me out, make the thing load way before, then display the smooth animation after, yes yes thank you

  • I actually watched this video before 10mil

  • I shot fireworks for a friend. I was running up and down the rows lighting the mortars never looked up. Second time I did! Awesome

  • Yes finally more *BOOM*

  • The title is what I have been wondering for years but never searched up

  • Is this a deepfake or are they shooting with weird lenses?

  • The AI can learn anything include making a story is making me terrified...

  • Honestly wish Tom was my teacher

  • Still 100% spot on

  • Very handy to know thank you

  • yes kaboom 💥

  • The amount of duct tape I’m seeing is disturbingly high

  • Cool guys don't look at explosions

  • Uber: where are you? Me: At the ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ ⬛⬛

  • Introducing The pyro

  • the pyrotechnician could've played dr. eggman in the sonic movie

  • Did they actually let Tom press the button?

  • I wonder how many bugs and animals like birds and squirrels were harmed with these bombs going off in the woods

  • oh, one of the moving pictures guys does movie effects now, that's cool

  • 0:03 That looks too nice for something that explodes. It made me think of sweet factories and the industrial portions they feed into the system. Sugar damaging enamel would be the least of your worries

  • Explosive expert is on 2x speed

  • "make it look more cinematic" *colour corrects his face even whiter *

  • This and other videos have got me thinking: We need to tread carefully.

  • I feel like I saw this before several years ago but I haven’t liked the video before and I’m not convinced I’ve seen it until now but it sure is familiar

  • I have the same headphones

  • Sad. No *The Emoji Movie* reference.

  • Wow. You can really see the difference in the power of those explosions if you look at how they flutter the leaves. The kilo of plastic explosive immediately lifted every leaf in the frame off the ground, while the "cinematic" explosion barely fluttered the more-distant ones. I imagine that helps with having the actors not flinch!

  • cool video Tom :)

  • Next with some Ashens tat: The Poundland Navigator! 😁

  • German kid: mom i wanna visit Luxembourg Mom: ok lets go *crosses the bridge*

  • I love trains ! I would love to try that train ride !

  • Honestly, the "cheesy grin" was a lot scarier than the steely gaze, like, proper gleeful madman!

  • "One less fuel tank, One less problem."

  • i call tag chase.ies

  • Literally no one: Tom blowing something up: 😬

  • Town in the Dutch-Belgian border: i didnt know i had an American brother

  • Okay but how did you know the length of the video when you didn't cut takes???

  • Explosions aren’t as exciting at 2x speed so I slowed down for you x

  • Tom: do not try this at home. Also Tom: Here's exactly how to make it :D

  • working

  • "...not to flinch." Or an uncomfortable grin works too.

  • 3:20 waiting for the memes

  • Because explosive burns in milliseconds.

  • However that recent factory explosion sure did look Hollywood at the time.

  • "That didn't look great on camera. Neither did I." - that's painfully relatable. 😔

  • Mom: We have Jamie Hyneman at home Jamie Hyneman at home:

  • It really all depends on how much fuel is being set off. The August 2020 explosion in Beirut, Lebanon, was massively ghastly. RIP to all those who lost their lives in that horrific accident.
