This video shows what an elevator ride to the 102nd floor observatory looks like in the new One World Trade Center tower in New York City. Per the New York Times:
From the moment the doors close until they reopen 47 seconds later on the 102nd floor, a seemingly three-dimensional time-lapse panorama will unfold on three walls of the elevator cabs, as if one were witnessing 515 years of history unfolding at the tip of Manhattan Island.
I love New York City, and this is fantastic. The short glimpse of the original Word Trade Center tower is a bit jarring, but very appropriate. This is definitely worth a watch. Can’t wait to see it in person.

This is one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen (MUST WATCH). Per slrlounge.com:
In an effort to demonstrate the “stability and precision of Volvo Dynamic Steering,” Volvo came up with a pretty creative concept and story to illustrate a topic that, for most people, is kind of yawn-worthy. The ad is 6th in a series of stunt videos that Volvo has released to promote it’s truck. From hamster’s steering a 15 ton truck on a windy quarry to dangling their President from a crane 65 ft over a port, Volvo might have outdone themselves in this 6th “Live Test” video. In this video, Jean-Claude Van Damme is doing his signature splits while standing on the mirrors of two semi trucks, while the trucks drive. Backwards. And to make it even more epic, the entire thing is set to the tune of Enya’s “Only Time.”
With only 15 minutes of morning light, the spot was shot in one take, after three days of rehearsing. The Volvo crew assures us that there are no wires or CG (computer graphics)
The talent here is mind-boggling. No way you could see the finished drawing and NOT think it was an actual, empty bag of potato chips. This is a much watch!
