The folks at YouTube’s Warped Perception channel promise that this video simply shows a mouse trap slicing through a plain old hot dog. But when filmed at a mind-boggling 147,000 frames per second, it’s hard not to imagine the same thing happening to a finger accidentally getting caught in there — or something, uh, a little more genitally inclined.
Filmed with a Phantom V2512 and Phantom Flex 4K camera, the footage reveals just how dangerous a mouse trap can be to a small rodent who goes for the bait, and why the old cartoon ‘mouse trap in a covered picnic basket’ prank is actually a horrible thing to do to someone. If you don’t shudder every time the tip of that hot dog gets sliced off, you might not have a soul. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]
