For all of you comparing this to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapse. Look up aeroelastic fluttering.

it's not big waves, it's resonance, like pushing a swing at the right time.

The Tacoma Narrows did that before it was cool! Quit posing Russia!

I was going to call bs on this, because it looks very faked, but there are several other videos of it on youtube.

The shaking road is not unreasonable (somebody forgot to check resonances!), but at :15, the extreme degree to which the concrete is expanding and contracting... I dunno, I'm feeling kinda skeptical about this one. I won't deny it outright, but something seems off.

Mythbusters did a whole episode on this sort of thing. It is definitly real.

Yeah, this has destroyed a bridge or two before and always has terrified me. I'm afraid to go over bridges ><

Thank you Lionhart! I live about 5 miles from the new narrows, and Gertie (the old bridge) was FAR worse than this one. :D

@kitteh9lives and lionhart2
They're also supposed to have Orwellian undertones.

Wind creates a harmonic resonance over and under the bridge causing that to happen. If it gets too bad, the bridge goes down. I think over here in America, on long span bridges they put angled sheets of metal on the sides of the bridge that act like an airfoil to prevent that resonance from happening.

This is small compared to the Tacoma Narrows disaster.

I can't wait to compare the "ripping itself apart" video of this to Galloping Gertie.

That is a pretty badly designed bridge, but I have seen worse.

There IS NO Soviet Russia. The Soviet Union disbanded years ago. Wake up and smell the real world, people.

Fake. Real bridges don't make a creaky-creak sound. When a real bridge warps and flexes, it's more of a krrkidirkreeeerdk sound.
