An instance of a badass slow-motion video would be when Will Smith was trying to fire up the bomb meant for the enchantress in the suicide squad movie.

Now that’s badass.

In this day and age, we can’t deny tons of things are evolving and trending.

The 80s fashion styles are trending, the music, heck even the food.

The creation of tons of social media platforms or video-making apps has made millions of users mini-directors/influencers.

These platforms are always out to make their users comfortable and well, not bored.
