The Slow Mo Guys specialize in filming moments of absolute chaos using a high-powered, slow-motion camera. Over the years, they’ve captured things like an underwater explosion, a 50-foot flamethrower, and a Lego plane shattering into pieces.

For their newest video, they opted to film something slightly more personal: their own legs being waxed. The first 28,000-fps clip starts at about 1:13 and seems positioned to let the viewer relish each follicle being torn from host Daniel Gruchy’s body. Here is a GIF of it, so you can remember what it’s like to feel again:
