As you may recall from your days in middle school gym class, there's nothing funny about getting hit in the face with a damn soccer ball. But it turns out there's actually at least one way to make soccer ball-face contact enjoyable: watching it in 1,000x slow motion.
Thanks to a new video from the dudes known as The Slow Mo Guys on YouTube, you can simultaneously laugh and wince at spectacular footage of a flying soccer ball squarely colliding with the side of a grown man's face. But first, we should point out the soccer ball used isn't your typical soccer ball, considering it was filled with water to add additional heft, and probably pain, to the impact. The resulting collision does not disappoint.
