                        I've done this by blinking very quickly, while looking at a ceiling fan.

                              That moment of a ceiling fan falling onto a human head was very dissonating.

                                So if I punch someone and they dont see it coming does that mean they just need to adjust their frame rate ?

                                  Is not a true Captain Disillusion video without him being injured, right? But if it happened in EVERY SINGLE VIDEO then it would be predictable and...

                                    The original video title was Frame Rate, but a load of photography students who think they know better "encouraged" the change

                                      You were doing the ceiling fan at double time it wasn’t matching the right rpm
