We don't need to set a real-life time bomb, break a bone, or wait for thunder to come in order to record realistic sound effects—we've got some talented Foley artists who can recreate all of these and many more impressive sounds using simple everyday objects.

In case you didn't know, a Foley artist is someone who works in film, video, and other media post-production to enhance its audio quality by producing various sound effects. The name "Foley" comes from the sound effect artist Jack Donovan Foley who, back in the first half of the 20th century, developed many sound effect techniques that, to this day, are still being used in filmmaking.

Today, we'd like to introduce you to one of these artists named Charlie Cooke. This guy has a TikTok account with over 576k followers where he shares videos revealing how to make various impressive sound effects.

Recently, one of his TikToks went viral and it currently has almost 3 million views

Unsheathig is almost silent, because sheaths are most usually not mad of metal.

That actually sound nothing close to a woodpecker and not fun fact... you'd very likely break your teeth on a grenade pin since they aren't supposed to fall out on a stray jiggle or passing fart nor do they have a 30 yard explosion of flame
