  • I love how the people who manage this dam are like, "Sure, you can throw stuff over the edge, just pick it up and don't kill anyone"

    • Sure they should and would

    • @Tana Paige wow don't go accusing me of wild accusations, how dare you call me a random from the Internet aswell, people have feelings.

    • @k-mo Idk this whole thing seems like misinformation. Unless I see actual proof it happened, I’m not believing some random person off the internet. If it actually happened, the articles would still be up and there would still be news covering what happened. Think you need to stop spreading rumors you find on the internet.

    • @Tana Paige yes I didnt quite believe it to be honest as I know these guys take serious safety precautions, the articles I believe have been removed probably due to false information, it's a shame but I wish the person a speedy recovery and if indeed they passed away, my thoughts are with their loved ones at this time 😔

    • @k-mo I wanna know where that even came from because there’s not a thing on the internet about someone dying because of these guys. If that actually happened, first of all, they wouldn’t even have a ID-tv channel. Second of all, there’s not a single legitimate article out there to prove that even happened. I’ve been a fan of these guys since 2017, and not once has there been a death or incident where someone got hurt. I think it’s time to stop believing what you read on Reddit.

  • Seeing how often you have been there and how famous you have made this dam - I reckon the guys that run this place should build an elevator for you. Or have they already? 😁

  • I freaking love these guys! Love their accents. Their videos are thrilling and hilarious! Keep it up guys!

  • i love you guys, never fail to put a smile on everyones face

  • Would love to see a paper airplane challenge on that dam and see how well different designs do!

  • I’m loving this return to the vibe of three friends who packed as much stuff into their cars as they could and drove to the tallest thing they could find. I know it’s way way more complicated than that, but that’s the vibe you guys give off and I love it.

  • You know you’re good when your videos are more addictive than drugs! You guys rock! Brett killed me with the “stuff ya’s”😂

  • Alright, I'm loving the whole series here, but... the craters!! 😍😍 is the kind of thing I'd have investigated for hours as a young lad. And then!! with the bowling ball just hanging there... You guys ALWAYS give the brain an unexpected treat.

  • This is one of my favorite YT channels. No politics, no drama, minimal swearing, nothing mean-spirited, no agenda, no negativity. Positive energy and vibes and lots of laughs.

  • That was amazing! Love watching you guys throw stuff over a dam! Lots of fun! 🥰😁❤️

    • My name is sandaru nimsara 12 yesold madin sri Lanka

  • You guys should do a crater competition! I’d love to see who could get the largest crater just dropping heavy things on the grass.

    • Yeesir

    • @Isaac Graff They could start with random big rocks, go to regular bricks, then throw cinder blocks and cap blocks over. I'm sure they would make great craters and would be spectacular in the slow motion replay. I wish they could find some Lawn Darts, for even more fun. Wait! Wait!!!!! Why not get some real darts and throw them at a regulation size dart board!!!!????? I'm a genius, if they would throw boxes of darts at once then the dozens of darts would be fun to dodge and run from.........

    • Fantastic love this ❤️

    • Yes that would be great

    • That is beautiful, and the craters have been absolutely awesome so far.

  • Congratulations on your huuuuuggggeeeee amount of followers bless you guys and the joy you have brought to my life with your insane addiction to the dropsies.

  • Congratulations on your huuuuuggggeeeee amount of followers bless you guys and the joy you have brought to my life with your insane addiction to the dropsies.

  • Had giant fun ! Thank you for your videos, guys! 😀😂👍

  • Would love to see a part 2 to this

  • I've been watching these three guys throwing stuff from high places for years, never gets old!

    • If oh sorry I forgot to tell scott

  • Didn’t think I’d have so much fun watching this video. Well done lad’s

    • i love you guys, never fail to put a smile on everyones face

  • Love these videos. Seeing yall lean over that massive dam gives me major fear of heights feelings though.

    • I've been watching these three guys throwing stuff from high places for years, never gets old!

  • I love the two camera angles.. it gives a perfect demonstration of the speed of sound. When Scott threw the orange soccer ball.. from his camera, he was at the 'D' of the word 'good' as it hit the wall. From the boys cameras down below he was starting the word 'not' when it hit!

  • Idk if it's the accents, great charisma, awesome brotherhood or the entertaining stunts and content but y'all always give me a laugh and something to take my mind off all the shitty things....1up m8

  • Alright, I'm loving the whole series here, but... the craters!! 2:08 is the kind of thing I'd have investigated for hours as a young lad. And then!! 2:52 with the bowling ball just hanging there... You guys ALWAYS give the brain an unexpected treat.

  • The bounce videos are by far my favorite!

  • Love you guys! Thanks for the amazing content

    • They reminded me of bananas in pajamas when they said "We made the tire disappear?"

  • Literally the best content, you guys really know how to brighten up a lads day!

  • Congratulations on your huuuuuggggeeeee amount of followers bless you guys and the joy you have brought to my life with your insane addiction to the dropsies. 😛

  • I still want to know how long it takes you to drive, walk, rappel, etc from the bottom to the top of the dam. I imagine it is not a short journey.

    • Fantastic love this ❤️

    • One of them sits on the blob, the one at the top jumps, and they swap places.

    • @Don't Read My Profile Photo don't comment on ID-tv videos

    • I imagine a helicopter

    • @Luke B but what about the other 2? Do they rappel up?

  • dude, this is fun! needs to be on outrageous acts of science asap!

  • You guys should do a crater competition! I’d love to see who could get the largest crater just dropping heavy things on the grass.

  • First time to your Channel. Love it, you guys are nuts. Do all Australians like you, go on the run after breaking out from Australia?

  • I love these dam videos!!! 😂you guys are hilarious!! club!

  • Love your videos.Keep the great work up

  • 11:10 Lol the dedication of these guys always amazes me, it sucks he's had back pain from throwing the big rubber band ball but its like he doesn't even realize it because he's so dedicated to their work, and it's cool his friends chose the small one now

  • "We're getting some smokie! Wedgie-grassy!" ....I love you guys! Keep living the dream and sharing the results!

  • Literally the best content, you guys really know how to brighten up a lads day!

  • I love the sound the bowling balls make. I wonder if drilling more holes in the balls would make it sound even better? Double the holes, double the whistles.

    • Fantastic love this ❤️

    • Fantastic love this ❤️

    • different depth and widths drilled to play notes and chords -- add some toppie, my ears are digging it.

    • This comment reminds me of that one Spongebob episode...

    • YES! More holes for more whistle.

  • It's cool how they get the opportunity to do this stuff. It looks so fun

  • I LOVE their energy and how happy they are over throwing balls 💕💕

    • I've been watching these three guys throwing stuff from high places for years, never gets old!

  • Hope you guys are doing okay! Love your videos. Praying that everything is A-Okay since we missed a day and there was no updates on the twitter/instagram. Love you guys.

  • Love this style of video guys!!!

  • How were you guys so ON this episode??? You hit EVERYTHING!

    • They cunningly combined a good altitude and a _baaaaad_ attitude. They may also have used the combination of a great altitude and being HIGH.

    • They *enhanced* their eyesight and reflexes using *amphetamine.*

    • Multiple takes lol

    • Simple, they were not trying to hit it.

    • Years and years of practice dumping stuff from a height.

  • This is sick! I'd love to dive chase the ball drops with my drone or UAV 😎🤙

  • This is one of my favorite YT channels. No politics, no drama, minimal swearing, nothing mean-spirited, no agenda, no negativity. Positive energy and vibes and lots of laughs

  • Just spent 20 minutes of my life watching people throw things from very high. Amazing.

  • Love your videos.Keep the great work up

    • Would love to see a part 2 to this

  • The tire just completely disappearing for a split second was amazing lol

    • 4:04

    • 69th like

    • I think that's where most of the rebound energy was lost. The top inelastically smacked into the bottom/ground when it fully flattened. That's why the inflated tire bounced so much higher.

  • I'm a 49 year old man (only by chronographical measure) from Midwestern United States and these goofy fuggers entertain the hell out of me. Just plain destructive fun.

  • This channel is just a look inside every man's brain. Cave men would be proud 👏

  • I feel like there's a physicist somewhere watching this that can explain kinetic energy between the items being dropped and the potential energy of the trampoline vs the rebound hight of objects.

  • I love how it seems like that tire just v-clips out of existence!

  • Props to editor Jack.. we all should show him some love in the comments! What a legend

    • I was just about to say the same in a comment. The editing is beyond genius, especially in ID-tv terms, no need to skip through, nor do you get a change to.

    • Congratulations on your huuuuuggggeeeee amount of followers bless you guys and the joy you have brought to my life with your insane addiction to the dropsies.

  • This whole channel is just throw stuff off a bridge, and I absolutely love it

  • this might be my top 5 favorite all time on this channel 😭🔥🔥

  • I think if the giant rubber ball had fallen on a street, it would have bounced back much higher. 😍

  • This reminds me of the Friant dam in Fresno county. We used to launch inflated spare tires in the middle of night, rim and all, inflated to 50 psi. They would get to the bottom and launch 200 yards airborne, no problem, and land in the pond below. The whole place was iluminated by flood lights at the bottom. I think the ultimate was the shopping carts though. After that, our attention shifted to sacrificing bicycles to the train deities. Out of all those bikes we only managed to find one pair of handlebars. We took them home and hung them on the living room wall. There is literally nothing else to do in Fresno.

  • Awesome as always. I knew Herron had it made with the blob pillow knocking that bowling ball so high on a fluke toss. That surprised the heck outta me 😅✌

  • So ready to see a new video 🖤🖤💯 you guys are the only ID-tv channel I watch. I check it daily. In the famous words of Gaunson “I’ve got that bell on” 🔔

  • Imagine you are an ant, having a good warm cup of tea and suddenly a giant rubberband ball visits you. That must be a very suprising visit.

  • I love how well the Basketball displayed the Magnus effect

  • Would love to see 50 bowling balls from the dam, purely because they sound like bombs due to the whistle.

  • Looks like a nice area to go down and have a picnic!

  • Very entertaining! I love it!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😊👍 The last rubber band ball, boooiiiiiiing! It looked like jelly!🤣

  • Great video guys, the last ball was amazing!

  • I'm afraid of heights, so, I get that "Oh shit, I'm falling" feeling in my chest and balls every time the camera gets dangled over the railing LOL

  • I would really like to see this with the iron ball 😆

  • I never thought I could be so entertained by a bunch of guys playing with their balls.

  • I've been re-watching a lot of your videos this weekend for the fifth or sixth time, and I had an epiphany. You need to do a video of just Jack dealing with your shenanigans like a parent dealing with little kids. I don't know if it would be quite as epic as the shovels (my personal favorite) but I bet it could be hilarious.

    • ,,,👆👆 Congratulations .... You've been selected among my shortlisted winners Reach out 👆👆to claim prize👆

  • All I can think about is how fertile the soil is😍😭

  • Glad to see you're doing more dropping stuff videos, those were always my favorite Great work guys keep it up!!!!

  • I just love slow motion shots❤

  • I LOVE their energy and how happy they are over throwing balls

  • Haron stumbling over his words, and Scot's response was amazing lol

  • PLEASE do some more of these videos using this Dam

  • Another great dam video. Always appreciate all that everyone does at HR, the editing, transporting stuff, the setup... All leading to you chucking something off the dam in a satisfying manner. I especially love those captions telling how the calculations were done too, honestly learned a decent amount from them. :P

    • @npc They have to; it is the nature of real men's life.

    • i wish they wouldn't start yell like some kids, everytime when something happends...

  • Easily the best video I've watched in a long time 🤣🤣

  • the sense that when you hear it….. You know exactly what it is! Such a daunting sound!

  • I love the most entertaining thing for me is what happens when you drop stuff from a high place?

  • I get seriously anxious everytime someone is near that edge, but I can't stop watching 😂

  • That rimmed tire falling was one if the most insane sounds I've ever heard!

    • Spce stock uavs stock matic crypto Ethereum classic

    • If you've ever been close to a fighter jet flyby, this sounded an awful lot like that. Such a satisfying sound

    • And the whistling of the bowling balls - yikes, sounding like bomb being dropped!

    • Fantastic love this ❤️

    • @Nexu Jin this is strangely moving

  • If I did something like that with the heavier items I would need a safety harness in case of accidental slippage

  • I was oddly good at guessing the heights. I was never more then half a meter off

  • Super scary when throwing something heavy from so high especially when you have your own weight and momentum behind it. My taint got tight watching this.

  • Something oddly satisfying about watching these folks throwing stuff off a dam...😁

  • Just to be a nerd: The height ascertained (by using the equations of motion) are not suitable for things like gigantic exercise balls. (As the equations being used are only good if the objects fall at same velocity in free-fall. You can't use those equations for determining motion of a feather.) Case & point: Scott was given a score of 4.9m on his big yellow exercise ball, and it didn't come anywhere CLOSE to that. And, on top of that, you can't use the damn dam (lol) as a makeshift coordinate system because it's curving away from camera. Okay, I exercised the demmmo....nerd.

    • Respecc

    • @dont ask me Nah, Case in Point just hits the ear wrong (for me.) And, none of the intent is lost, unless I'm using a time machine, conversing with someone from 50 years ago.

    • Use "case in point" in future... I wouldn't usually be a pedantic prick, but when in Rome.

    • @Jakob Öström Hä6 copied this? not even sure what you mean... it's a very specific comment.

    • @Jakob Öström Hä6 no

  • Hi your vids are so amazing i have been watching since 2019 and your video inspires a lot of people and everyone just wants to do the some of you. Me and my dad watch you every vid you are amazing 🥳🥳

  • Been a while, and just plain fun👍

  • Wow, awesome slow mo of the bowling ball on the trampoline wow nice!

  • ""One of the best things about dude is that he never takes credit for himself when he achivese something he always respect

  • Love these videos. Seeing yall lean over that massive dam gives me major fear of heights feelings though.

    • Facts when he said take a look.

    • on the same page here. Love watching the videos and I know you wouldn't post it if something were to go wrong but my stomach always feels like you threw it over the edge. Stay safe guys!😊

    • Same. Every time the camera goes out over the edge my stomach does a little flip. And yet, I keep watching!

  • I love that these guys made a career out of tossing stuff off high places. I'm sure it requires a lot more than most would think. Love it.

    • ☝️☝️congratulations you’ve been selected among my lucky winners message me right away to claim your items thank you 📦👍👍

    • It takes a lot of balls...

  • You're very funny dudes 🤣. Thank you!

  • the problem with the bowling ball was that it hit the ground, and once that happens it creates a shockwave which was most likely the reason the trampoline broke bc it wasnt downward force.

  • I have never experienced so much anxiety watching a ID-tv video before. Heights are scary!

  • I would still love to see an Atlas stone v a pool of marbles >:D

  • You guys should do another darts bullseye video! I love those!👍

  • For some reason I thought one would bounce back up so high they could catch it lol

  • I still want to know how long it takes you to drive, walk, rappel, etc from the bottom to the top of the dam. I imagine it is not a short journey.

  • Always a blast watching these guys. Keep it up!

    • This is one of my favorite YT channels. No politics, no drama, minimal swearing, nothing mean-spirited, no agenda, no negativity. Positive energy and vibes and lots of laughs

  • "We made the tire disappear" Best line ever

  • I love how the people that manage the dam are like "sure just don't kill anybody"
