Need a little color to brighten your day? How about a lot of color?

NASA engineer-turned-Youtuber Mark Rober thinks you do.

Together with the team at Eclectical Engineering, Rober built a couple of pump-powered Super Soakers that will douse your opponents in paint. He even calls in a favor from YouTube inventor Colin Furze for some last minute tips on how to give his nieces and nephews the blues, literally.

The video, with its high-quality slow motion, is a colorful distraction. The fact that you can't play with this thing will have you seeing red... and orange and blue and green.

In the UK, it's required to screen all films (that you plan on showing to the public) through the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).  It's expensive, costing over £100 to submit and another £7 per minute of screening. It also opens your film up to censorship.  In protest of the amount of control and censorship the BBFC imposes on the UK film industry, filmmaker Charlie Lyne created a video of paint drying to send to the BBFC. 

His Kickstarter managed to fund a little over 10 hours of screening time that the BBFC will now have to watch and rate.  Here is a clip of what they will be watching:

Gav and Dan of The Slow Mo Guys ruin a perfectly good speaker by pouring paint all over it. But hey, at least it looks pretty in slow motion.
