No, you've never seen a domino video like this one

You know who's really going to appreciate this video?

Every single one of us who still remembers being really, really proud of ourselves for setting up, like, 15 dominoes in a row, managing to not tip any of them over, then seeing them all fall flawlessly in sequence.

How great was that?! Pretty great... for us amateurs.

These guys are not amateurs.

More than 20,000 dominoes and three months were required to create that 4-minute sequence of spectacular tricks. They were dreamt up and executed by a pair of ridiculously creative domino ninjas, who go by the names Million Dollar Baby and Hevesh 5.

Longer domino chains have been built. Much longer. But the inventive nature of these displays is the thing here.

In a note posted with the video, Hevesh 5 explains this kind of domino video is a "screenlink," meaning it doesn't show one consecutive sequence, but a couple dozen set-ups each toppled and filmed separately, then edited together in a single long clip.

Which sounds like a pretty good way to go if you have the ability to create lots of precisely collapsed domino super-structures, but don't have access to a warehouse or airplane hangar.

More amazing videos from these guys can be found here and here.
