In the video below, Tory Belleci from the MythBusters Build Team inflates a giant balloon, and we wait for the thing to pop. It's like consensual torture. Having said that, I enjoyed this way more than I thought I would—the suspense comes in waves, as it goes on far longer than I expected. At times I wondered if the balloon would even pop at all. Tory even repeats his lines, it goes on for so long. Just watch poor Tory's face as he waits for the inevitable explosion. It's awful and wonderful all at once.

Incidentally, the Build Team is working on a new Netflix show. Get excited!
