Bridge demolitions set to opera

Nice editing work makes this short video of bridges being blown up to the sounds of the Barber of Seville. I hope Obama's infrastructure rebuilding plan includes lots of bridge demolitions so that we can look forward to more fun videos like this! (Via Arbroath)


  1. Be on the lookout for the fat lady as the american economy collapses like these bridges …

  2. Excellent Editing. However, for me this was overshadowed by the repetition. A remix is on order. More bridges, more explosions, and a grand finale.

  3. @4

    Since this video was just Virginia bridges, I’m sure someone would be able to find plenty of bridges to operaize.

  4. I was expecting O, Fortuna, but that’s really a cantata not an opera. I suppose it’s probably more suited to skyscraper demolition, anyway.

    #4 / Zuzu – Nearly all of my knowledge of “high culture” comes from Erowid.

  5. I like how the exploding concrete pillar in one shot produces huge clouds of dust. It reminds me of some other exploded concrete video I’ve seen elsewhere.
