    Amazing really, but two slightly negative comments...

    It`d be great to see the whole thing, without the cuts to the audience, and editting. Just first domino to last.

    And, I prefered these things when there were only dominoes; the massive sets (balloons and what not) just get in the way

    So this is what has replaced Kennedy`s dream of a race to the stars... knocking coloured plastic over to make pictures. I hear him turning over in his grave, to the sound of tumbling dominoes...

    Anyway, it would take too long to show everything. This is shown every year on television and it takes about 2.5 hours for all the dominoes to fall. (they attempt a new world record every year for 10 years now, and got it 10 times in a row)

    The reason it was all cut up (edited) is because it took hours for them all to fall.

    The props were needed for the concept of each section, and it makes it a lot more interesting than just watching dominoes fall for two hours. It would be so awesome to watch this live.

    It was more like a "mouse trap." They used a lot of props other than dominoes.

    That`s bull...we didn`t get the world record 2 times out of those 10, maybe even more...

    and it`s not amazing to watch, because the domino`s do fall in 2,5 hours...but 2 of those 2,5 we don`t get to see, because of stupid commercials and celebrity`s that have nothing better to do with their time...

    that`s why i stopped watching it 8 years ago...

    im now fascinated with how they set it up so of course you must now know too :D
    "Four builders’ challenges were set in which pairs of builders were chosen to complete vital parts of the set-up while the dominoes were already toppling
    The design of the course took about a year and a team of 90 builders took around two months to build it. It then took over 2 hours to tumble. Here are about 20 minutes of the whole thing.

    You have to marvel at how people can be enthused with falling dominoes for two hours. Some creative ideas though.

    aw man, that was awesome.
    i would never have to patience to do that.

    if i just set up one line of dominoes and knock them down by accident, i`d be like, "OH, F*CK THIS!"

    I`d love to see this halfway done and have some dunce accidentally knock one down while setting up another. The sheer anger of all the other people involved would be entertaining. It`d be like that fat german kid video.
