A few weeks ago, the long-abandoned building that stood next to the MEL offices finally succumbed to the destructive power of an excavator’s power shovel. But what began as a noisy inconvenience soon became a production-killing must-see viewing experience: With every swing into the building’s side came cheers and roars from staffers peering out of a large window as the house crumbled to the ground.
Which got us thinking: Why are we so fascinated with breaking stuff, and why do we love watching large objects and buildings reduced to rubble? All we know is, two hours and one rabbit hole of demolition videos later, we know we’re not alone.
Feast your eyes on the beauty of destruction!
