awwwwwww. i wanted to watch something blow up. oh well. it was still pretty interesting to watch the whole process, anyway. *sigh* even if it didn't include a mushroom cloud of rubble dust....its the thought that counts.

Yes, because "Wong" is a traditionally Japanese name.

To all you people who think that this is inefficient because of time...

Do you realise that part of the demolition of a building involves clearing up all that rubble that you now find on the ground? Just imagine how much of a job it would be clearing up that disorderly mess, as opposed to decontructing the building bit by bit. Oh yeah, it's a lot more efficient, isn't it? Plus the added benefits others have mentioned.

And besides, the extra time it takes to lower the building wouldn't be very long in comparison to the whole job.

Oh and I wouldn't call fake on this, because although they do loop the footage, it still suggests that one floor has been removed...why would anyone do this unless they are in fact demolishing a building?

Actually, it loks like there it is made with a video camera but the beginning and endingare probally the same because they ran out of footage. I say it's legit.

everybodys saying it's shopped, but what you on't rrealize is this is pictures taken every now and again and it looks the same because they do the same thing for every floor. Accept the fact that it's cool and more efficient.

Kajima Corporation, a Japanese construction company, demolishes high-rise buildings from the bottom up. They install giant hydraulic jacks on the first floor, break up all the building material on that floor, then lower the jacks and repeat the process on the second floor (which is now resting at ground level.)

Informally, this method is called daruma-otoshi, the name of a Japanese game where you remove the lowest block on a stack by knocking it out with a small mallet.

According to Kajima, the daruma-otoshi demolition method — which is now being used to dismantle a 75 meter (246 ft) tall, 20-story building and a 65 meter (213 ft) tall, 17-story building — is safer and creates less noise and dust pollution because the work is kept close to the ground. In addition, this method cuts demolition time by 20% and makes it easier to separate and recycle the building materials.

In US/UK/Germany/Spain/Brazil and lots of other countries this has been done before and much more..

They can cut a building in half and move the facade back to open space to the streets.. mind your enginering knowledge before praising something that's not really that new and a country famous for taking the fame for things they didn't created.

well its clean and all, but in reality its much more efficient to just blow it up. With this they have to take every peice off floor by floor, then wait. This would take a very long time.

You know what I just realized IAB needs? Comment ratings. You know, like how on YouTube if you get enough thumbs downs your comment gets removed - well I think IAB could really use something like that. Case in point - "boring blowing stuff up is more fun"

See- instead of being enviable of the Japanese, why don't we copy them and give them the credit? Everything would be so much easier.

Very neat and clean. But it must be quite time consuming; I'd still vote for the ol' reliable explosives. ^_~

It may be a longer process but it is a lot cleaner and less noisy!
