its fake. Its takes a lot to set up charges to blow up a building. You`re not going to make a mistake with the damn guy right there directing a commercial for it.

It`s fake. Looks like viral internet marketing. The video was obviously taken by a professional and the audio was almost crystal clear. Also sort of weird that the camera man looked at the exploding building without moving to see what it was first. He just knew it was the new one. I think it`s fake. Too well done. Obviously not amateur footage.

I actually went to the website when they had planned to broadcast the demolition live. This was such a letdown. I expected to see an actual building being blown up but instead I got a sorry excuse for a viral marketing video. Ruby Tuesday lost my business forever that day. Yes, I know it`s a dumb thing to get upset over, but I love to watch poo explode (well, implode, I guess) and it didn`t even show like some random stock footage of a building being blown up. PHAIL

...your kidding, how can you NOT tell that is fake.

For all of you who said that was "real" are you new to the internet? We have seen these videos starting 3-5 years ago.

It`s fake. Considering the fact there`s no Tuesday`s, and no Cheeky`s in Mt. Holly, it`s fake. Then there`s this.

How could that be real? You`ve got to gut the entire building before you can blow it up, it takes weeks of preparation to blow up a building.

Anyone who thought it was real is a freaking moron.

In the other perspective videos posted on youtube by "witnesses", it seems that when the camera jumps to the second building it`s the same EXACT shot each time, too.

Proof:

What amuses me is that even though several of the regular posters, and some who only post as often as I do have given rock solid evidence that this was OBVIOUSLY a clever marketing gimmick, there is still SERIOUS discussion about whether or not this was real, and some people here actually believe it was real.

Then I remembered that 60% of American high school students think Joan of Arc was Noah`s wife...

It`s definitely a clever marketing scheme. But the video is obviously fake. No brick structure like the front of that building could fall to the ground and stay in-tact like in the video.

I think opie is on the right track with the sameness theory. The buildings looked almost identical and the demo guys "mistakenly" wired the wrong one because they couldn`t tell them apart.

i feel bad for you guys who saw this and thought it was real, do you really think trained demolition men would screw something like that up, not only blow up the wrong building but be looking at a different building then the one they wired up, come on folks

It isn`t real. If it were real all the videos that you can find of the demolition would not suddenly jump to the next building once it started blowing up. The person filming would be confused for at least a few seconds and looking around with their own eyes before deciding to turn the camera on the scene, if they remembered to do so at all due to the shock.

I think it is a very well done commercial. Funny and entertaining. Unfortunatly I was just recently at a "new" Ruby Tuesdays and the new look and food were awful. Never going there again unless they change back.

Plus, the demo team was looking at the Ruby Tuesday`s. I`m sure if it was real, the demo team would know which building they planted explosives on.

first clue is when he says here in mt. holly, ohio. and there is silence. normally when someones on tv or something and they mention the town they`re in the locals usually go whooooo! or start cheering. they didnt cause they were all in on it.

I don`t buy it, it`s just a marketing ad to try and get the name Ruby Tuesday`s more well-known.

"I`m pretty sure it`s real. On Youtube there are videos taken from personal cameras that are at different angles, etc."

There were multiple videos of that office eruption, but that was fake...


There is no way this is real, it was probably a set up to make room for a new strip mall or something

Has nobody else seen the commercials?

I doubt that the company would make a commercial to apologize. It seems like a more formal thing would be better.

I think the advertising intent was to say that they were leaving sameness by blowing up their building, and by "accidentally" blowing up another building it showed how much sameness they had.

...If that makes sense to anyone but me.

I don`t think it`s real. Mainly because I keep seeing a commercial where they "apologize" for blowing up the wrong building.
