Default EPIC Failure.

So, I saw this on AOL news earlier today and thought I'd share the video from it...



I wonder what the people in the other building were thinking when they saw that rolling towards them.

It's funny to see something like that, but it is also extremely scary at the same time.

wow, epic fail indeed...I bet the lot of the engineers that planned that demo will be fired on the spot if not fined too...or something. I can't imagine how I would feel seeing a building trying to do a barrel roll towards me...

I see epic failure quoted here a lot, not alway accurately, but this time I have to agree: Epic Failure!

yes I can agree that epic is often used for far less than epic things, however, this is quite epic.

That was one well designed building. The thing didn't even break up as it rolled over.

its most likely a old steel/iron framed building and thats why it didn't crush when it fell on the side and rolled over.
