Slow-motion beatboxing is hypnotizing

German beatboxer Flula Borg wanted to film his craft at 1,500 frames per second. So he did. The result is mesmerizing (as slow-mo footage is wont to be). It's also... weirdly explicit (due in no small part to Borg's own reference to sauropod genitalia).


Complement this video with the latest installment of Smarter Every Day, wherein Destin actually meets up with Borg and explores some of the science in the above clip:
