What do 60,000 dominoes falling down look like?

(CBS News) It's the first day back from the weekend, so it's probably best to kick things off a little light. Do any of you know what 60,000 dominoes falling down happen to look like? If you answered "no", then the answer is a whole lot like the above video. Check it out.

The cool stop-motion video was done by YouTube user FlippyCat who writes:

This is my personal record for most dominos used at once.

In this chain reaction there are 60 big dominos each containing 990 dominos, and a small field of 600 dominos (which says 60,000) to bring the total up to 60,000 dominos used. 

The big dominos span about 14 feet across. It took approximately 65.5 hours to complete over 8 days. In the setup footage, the counter changes color on each day. 

The entire setup fell in approximately 12 seconds.

That is a whole lot of time and commitment for just 12 seconds of "wow"!  Thanks so much for sharing with all of us, FlippyCat.  And to double up the dominoes fun, I've got another impressive video to share with you all below, this time with a Nintendo twist to it.  I hope you all enjoy!
