The rope would need to be really long, 100 feet or more, just to get it going & have enough time to see it happen.
The drop would need to be long too, and the flexibility of the rope is important: to floppy and it won't work, too stiff and it won`t fall properly.

My Mum moved to a 4th floor apartment with a balcony, I`ll give it a try with the longest rope I can find and report back!

Squrlz: I think you'd have to weight the end of the rope to get it to pull hard enough, so you`d have to be a few floors in the air. But otherwise, sure, let`s see a test. Anyone?

There remain a lot of unanswered questions here. For example, could you get a rope to do the same thing? How about a heavy rope? Does it *have* to be a beaded chain? If so, why?

(Carmium, I think you hit on some key points. I'd just like to see this tried with a rope.)

What if he stood on a ladder...in a really deep hole. That would confuse it.
