Truly amazing perspective. Whoever is scoffing at how "easily" this is done, take your cynicism and shove it, ok?
But I do want to point out that I sometimes could not tell what was post-quake destruction and what was overlooked rubble. I`m from India, and a lot of streets (even in Mumbai, one of the most prosperous cities in the country) look like some of what was on the video. And the second page, seeing those people waiting there was haunting. What was going through their minds?

take a look to the right, @ 0:26 mark.... you`ll see coffins and bodies covered in blankets on the side walk in 37C weather.

Looks pretty much like what I thought Haiti would look like, only with a few more destroyed buildings here and there.

Right around 02:10 you can see a billboard on the right that`s fine and just beyond it a building is destroyed...it`s odd how random the devastation is.

Uhhhhh...isn`t this pretty much what Haiti looked like a year ago? I mean, I feel bad for the people there but let`s be absolutely honest, Haiti wasn`t exactly anything but a 3rd world s**thole BEFORE the quake, which is why the place is in such shambles right now.

vv Replace your "i" with "quote" and your angled brackets "<" with square brackets "[", and you have italics.

We know, we know. Our html scripting was coded by Franciscan monks back in the mid-16th century. Bear with us.

I think I better understand the google maps street view now, also, even with all the tragic destruction, I find it fascinating that I can finally see what life is like in another country.

"Can you even imagine what the left-wing haters would be saying about the driver if this were Fox News?"

Impossible. Fox News wouldn`t do something like this. It might stir up liberal sympathy.

"Yeah dude, but the foundations of that relationship were rocky from the start. It was a matter of time until it collapsed. It wasn`t all your fault."

Am I allowed to laugh at stuff like this yet? Is there a formula to find out how long one`s supposed to wait?

And also, was anyone else waiting for them to hit someone? They didn`t slow down very often for people trying to get out of the way..

Honestly..that made me sick to my stomach to watch..not the scene but the way they did the 360 camera. But then again I`m someone who gets carsick easily. I couldn`t watch more then a minute.

I`m conflicted here. I think I usually support humour in the face of crappy circumstances, but for some reason you people seem disgusting right now.

I shouldn`t find that funny in the face of the tragedy, but regrettably I do.

It looks exactly like it does driving down my street, except for the rubble and the lack of the mountains in the distance.

Haiti was a poo-hole before the quake. Looks like nice weather though. Now would be a perfect time to bulldoze the place and start building golf courses and resorts.

Technology is amazing. And the cost of that camara can probably feed 200 children there. I don`t know what to think of that fact, it just is.
