Whoever thought that was a good song needs to be introduced to music.

It`s symphonic, but it`s all over the place, which makes it sound like a crappy death metal band (as opposed to the good ones that make it sound AWESOME)

I don`t really think I mind the whole paper airplane fail.... Mostly because Sigur Ros is an absolutely amazing band.

@ Slmmhmmr161 - Who is Sigur Ros? Damn...

And i agree with most of these comments... SUCH of a let down after reading the title... It would have been just as effective with A4 sheets of paper doing it like this...

"MEH!! MEEEEEHHH!!

What a mess...
They should have used an explosive to make them spread out more, like a firework...
I hate crowds, a zillion people standing within 5m of you...
The music was repetitive and sad!

I like to complain!"

Explosives + Paper + top of expensive building + huge crowd does not mix...(well)

Honestly, when it said 100,000 paper airplanes I was expecting a bit more than this. Better than nothing though.

I feel bad for the dude who empties my wastebasket at the end of the day - when will someone discover his tremendous artistic gift?

I love how half the people share this look of disappointment after they throw down the "paper airplanes" and the other half fake enthusiasm.

I was there. It was during our Art Prize exhibits. For all of you know dont know of art prize, people from all over the world bring their art to Grand Rapids. Local Restaurants and vacant buildings are filled with their art. There are also very large displays that change the skyline and downtown of Grand Rapids. Including a really cool Loch Ness monster that was floating in our river.

This day was a Saturday and was possibly the nicest days of the event that lasted more than 2 weeks. Rob Bliss` airplane art was poo. Its exactly what you see and was dull and boring. Total waste of my time. The other art by the way was amazing. Here is a link of Art Prize. http://www.artprize.org/

You`re supposed to throw paper airplanes, not dump them from top of the building. They should have given them to all the people and let people throw them around.

How do they even come close to being paper airplanes when most of them just fall straight down?

I was hoping all 20k people would be throwing them one by one.. Instead, you could get the same effect by dumping your trash off the side of the building.. oh wait..
