The elusive ‘Fire Tornado’ is probably the most awesome naturally occurring weather phenomenon. If it’s not the fire tornado then it’s the lightning volcano and/or the Sharknado, but we all know the latter is less of a weather phenomenon and more of a cultural phenomenon based around the worship of and devotion towards Tara Reid and Ian Ziering (pronounced ‘eye-an’). Anyways, I actually blogged about the Firenado not too long ago when a video surfaced that showed a lake next to a Jim Beam bourbon factory that was full of alcoholic runoff create a firenado. That video is completely badass, and that firenado was not created in a lab.
Today’s firenado was however created in a lab as it was constructed by The Slow Mo Guys for the purposes of filming a badass YouTube video. They busted out the Phantom Flex and Phantom Flex 4K cameras to film this fire tornado in both 2500fps and 1000fps (frames per second) and the result is nothing short of mesmerizing:
Now for the highlights broken down into GIFs that are somehow even more mesmerizing…
Everything looks better in Slow Mo HD, everything.
