Moving Truck vs Low Bridge in Slow Mo

If you’ve ever heard of the “11 Foot 8 Bridge” in Durham, NC, a widespread Internet phenomenon, you’ve probably seen the unfortunate videos that put truck drivers up against the structure, that for some reason, keeps on tangling them up in its grasp. When the unsuspecting drivers approach the bridge, I guess it looks high enough for them to make their way under it, however, reality would spell out a different story as truck after truck ends up being decapitated by the bridge that is simply too low for traffic that stands that high above the ground.

In turn, when the channel that we all know and love that goes by the name of The Slow Mo Guys caught wind of it, they had figured this was definitely something that they wanted to get in on with their programming as they decided to take on the phenomenon of the truck hitting a bridge and showcasing the entire thing In slow motion.

There are a lot of factors in play here that would simply be a little bit too much for the human eye to be able to grasp at full speed and that’s exactly where a channel like this comes into play, using the best of their abilities to put their equipment to the test and be able to deliver us situations like this better as they slow it down to the point when you can grasp every last frame of the action, seeing things that would’ve previously been nearly invisible at full speed.

If you follow along down in the video below, you’ll be able to see exactly what happens when you get inside of a situation like this and break it all down. After seeing this video and all of the knowledge that The Slowmo Guys apparently bring to the table every time, we get a feeling that the next time you see one of these videos, you’re never going to look at it the same way again, even when the bridge continues to claim victims who are unaware of its trickery.
