What happens when a golf ball is sent hurtling towards everyday objects at ridiculously high speeds? These incredible slow motion videos from Nike show the explosive results.

Mayonnaise:

Poor bunny!

My favorite – Jello mold:

For some reason I found most of these to be just as funny as they are interesting. What did you think?

    Those are absolutely amazing! For a brief, albeit morbid, second I thought they were actually going to shoot a golfball at a real bunny…
    I have to agree, the Jello was the best.

    They were all very cool. The thumbs up at the end of each was very funny.

    simply awesome.

    That was awesome!!!!!! The jello, yeah, that was poetic! I feel bad for whoever has to clean that stuff up.

    The golf ball through jello was like the parting of the dead sea. You could track the ball by its plume. #i guess this is what a shotgun solid would do to you as well…

    i love the sound on the bunny video–and i was pretty surprised it wasn’t a chocolate bunny

    Toatally fake you losers. Golf balls dont exist!!! IDIOTS!! LOLOLOLOLOL ROFL.

    This is just the viral-marketing-effect nike wants to achieve. Everyone is posting these vids on their bullogs. And you’re all helping. But at least it’s a win-win-situation, cuz we get to see some really cool footage.

    good aiming.

    Hahaha slow mo stuff is so cool, especially this!

  13. on 10 Dec 2006 at 6:21 pm MrPeach

    But will those golf balls blend???

    Nice Blog ¡¡¡

  15. on 10 Dec 2006 at 7:01 pm Alec

    I’m right in saying that all the thumbs ups at the end where exactly the same footage right? That’s a really cool touch.

  16. on 10 Dec 2006 at 7:04 pm yonner

    come on this was rubbish. It wasn’t funny due it to being a carefully contrived viral marketing campaign.

  17. on 10 Dec 2006 at 7:07 pm AstorLights

    Very cool stuff, I like the mayo 😛

  18. on 10 Dec 2006 at 7:17 pm Mrinal

    It is nice to see how things appear when they slow down …. it is similar when we stop in our daily lives for a breather :) …. great perspective Anita!

  19. on 10 Dec 2006 at 7:22 pm me

    why is this labelled amazing?

  20. on 10 Dec 2006 at 7:50 pm cfpresley

    Seems like a rip off of the keystone beer canon, or the blendtec “Will it blend?” viral marketing.

  21. on 10 Dec 2006 at 8:13 pm borsch

    Vanillabean, Moses parted the Red Sea…. and Alec, I think the thumbs up footage at the endings were different, some varied in length, position, etc. Great marketing, similar to “will it blend”… Well done, Nike.

    Good viral ads.

  23. on 11 Dec 2006 at 1:02 am Geekwad

    I was interested to see how much the mayo looked like like the distribution of dark matter in the local universe.

  24. on 11 Dec 2006 at 6:43 am spankbot.net

    These are great Nike viral vids. They thank you for the ad space.

  25. on 11 Dec 2006 at 6:54 pm Dan

    I think the funniest part were the nerds, in black and white no less, announcing the object about to be shot.

    Is there a video of one of the nerds being shot with a golf ball? Now that would rule.

  26. on 12 Dec 2006 at 12:17 am Crudely Wrott

    Well sure. That’s what happens when you hit wimpy stuff with hard stuff.

    Where can I get a golfball cannon?

  28. on 12 Dec 2006 at 9:04 pm Kat

    Lord. I thought it would be a real bunny too for a second.

  29. on 12 Dec 2006 at 10:13 pm Sorcerer Mickey

    Wait a minute… where’s the one with the human brain?

  30. on 13 Dec 2006 at 12:45 am Shawn Honnick

    I want a golfball cannon to keep with me in my Element. I will produce videos for “that car in front of me” and “that car beside me” and a few for “those cars behind me” :-)

  31. on 13 Dec 2006 at 7:31 pm Eric

    Just another annoying marketing ploy. Feel used?

  32. on 13 Dec 2006 at 7:54 pm Funny Videos

    That is really cool :) I like the mayonnaise one.

  33. on 13 Dec 2006 at 8:02 pm ICwater

    That’s the funniest thing ever! I saw the still of the bunny’s red ribbon being blown off and I thought it was blood… from a realy bunny. Morbid, no?

    I only got to see the birthday cake one, but wow! I’d hate to get hit in the head by one of those.

  43. on 19 Oct 2009 at 1:14 pm Brandon

    Where is that site with all the videos, besides youtube. Nike has a special site with those videos. But i can’t find it!
