SnoopyBG is perfectly correct. This is not achievable.

This trick can only look realistic from one vantage point. But the video shows the Gag from multiple angles. This is impossible.

It's like those sidewalk chalk artists. Their illusions can only be captured from a single viewing position. From any other position, the images are distorted and hardly recognizable.

To get a better idea of how impossible this is, pay close attention to the middle monitor. When the camera is pointing straight down to the floor, the middle monitor is displaying the bottom of the elevator shaft. But from viewing this gag from the offset camera angle, that same monitor doesn`t display the bottom of the elevator shaft, but the side wall of the elevator shat. So ask yourself, "How can a single monitor project two entirely different images toward two very specific viewpoints simultaneously?".

The answer is simple... they can`t.

It didn't drop, the floor panels did, and even then only virtually.
