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

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

    If it looks like a viral vid, smells lie a viral vid, and tastes like a viral vid, its probably a viral vid.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
