The Slow Mo Guys Waxed Their Legs, and It Looked Painful as Hell


  • We love ourselves some good ol’-fashioned Slow Mo Guys here at What’s Trending. Remember when they fired up a flamethrower in slow motion? How about the time they blew up a giant water balloon? Plus, watching guys (like Tyler Oakley) get their legs waxed is always a good time.
