Why is it that everything looks cooler in slow motion? And the slower the better, especially when you're dealing with one of those new-fangled high frame rate super cameras. Case in point? When you add a MG Midget, a serious amount of explosives and a 1,000 frame per second camera and you have some very compelling YouTube footage.

Hit the jump
to look on as Speed TV's Stuntbusters lay waste to what looks like a rather tired (and likely non-running) MG. There is nothing but really slow demolition and some Mary Lou Retton-style tumbling, but it's totally worth your 1:09.

      am I going in hell for being disappointed in not realizing until the end that the video was about a burning Midget and not a burning midget?

      When I first read the title, I thought, "Intrigueing, but what does it have to do with cars?"

      And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what Michael Bay's wet dreams look like.

      They prefer the term "little person".

      The lead-in says to watch a car explode in slow motion. The car didn't explode in slow motion, it exploded at regular speed. It was filmed in slow motion. I can't tell you how annoyed I am by this. I'm quitting work 25 minutes early and going home.

      To quote Peter Griffin "That title wrote a check that those queers on stage could not cash".

      I've seen MGs in worse shape run LeMons.

      Not much of a fan of vintage British sports cars, but I don't of approve of using collectible cars in this manner. There are junkyards full of mass produced "appliances' that no one would miss.

        This one's beyond repair. Looks like it's been flipped already and there wasn't an engine, so I bet it was already junk-yard fodder. Plus, it's the cruddy US model with rubber bumpers. I'm an MG fan, but that was fun to watch nonetheless.

          Not to me. If you were willing to spend the extra money and time on parts and repairs, the car could have been saved. Somebody should have flipped he stunt clowns instead.

      1.000 FPS and they didn't bother to upload it in HD?

        I counted the FPS and there were only 972 FPS. What a ripoff!

      Explosives? Not that much...most of it appears to be propane if not kerosene. If you've ever seen a serious amount of explosives it just pulverizes the vehicle in place unless it comes from below (try a dozen 155mm artillery shells buried in an IED) in which case the explosion will lift the mini 20 yards..

      ugh... for a split second I was really thinking I was going to get to see an actual little person stunt man, on fire, flipping through the air. I am disappointed
