Snuffing out candles with an air pistol (VIDEO)

Gav and Daniel, aka The Slow Mo Guys, obtained one of the apparently most inaccurate airguns available to them, and proceeded to attempt to snuff out lit candles.

From just under 10 feet (3 meters) they manage to dial it in after a few practice shots, finding the sweet spot captured on the Phantom high speed camera.

The footage is magical.

Should have just used a 12 gauge.
