How was this done?

No telling how much Photo Shop was involved in the image. In fact the whole thing could have been assembled in Photoshop. A recent episode of Photoshop TV showed a similar image made from a seperate splash and a bottle image.
With film, and slow motion, a high frame rate and syncro-strobe lighting or a whole bunch of level from continous sources.
with DVAM, probably not. The apple would have moved through the shot in less than the time it takes to capture the frame. Zip, a blur at best.
Cranking up the shutter speed would make a slower playback speed choppy looking.
Get a fish tank and give it a go. Check back with the results.
Always looking for new ways to do things.

half the time they just take a perfect clear/clean fish tank and fill to desired
water level where the frame wont show anything above or below to
composition. then shoot shot upon drop of apple. shazaam!
however, you're not gonna get a quality shot like the one you showed with
DV, unless its an HVX200 or better. I'd recommend using a still 35mm camera
and just dropping until you think you got it. And, expect to possibly photoshop
out undesired reflections. As well as shooting with at least a 1000 shutter speed
to capture no blur.

The difficult thing is keeping everything clean of dust. You would be surprised how much dust there is to make your water look all mucky.
