What happens when a LEGO replica of a Porsche 911 crashes into a tiny wall at 28 mph? Thanks to the minds behind Heinz Heise, we now know it’s more beautiful than we ever could have imagined. The media company uploaded a video of their LEGO “experiment” to YouTube, showing the collision at every possible angle. Filmed at 1000 fps, the footage allows viewers to watch every piece of brick shrapnel fly majestically through the air. Set to the tune of Johann Strauss II’s ‘The Blue Danube Waltz’ (you’ll know it when you hear it), the three-minute video is hypnotizing. LEGOs have been used in countless different ways online, but it’s been a long time since the blocks have been utilized this masterfully. The crash is stunning. It’s addicting. It’s art in motion.
The team behind the video seemed happy with the results, as they are shown laughing and cheering as they witness the carnage they created. If nothing else, this video teaches us all one invaluable lesson: while building LEGOs is fun, there’s something so satisfying about a perfectly executed demolition.
