Fail! How Not to Demolish a High Rise Building(Video)

A controlled explosion to demolish a 10 storey high concrete building in Sevastopol, Crimea didn’t quite work to plan.

I wouldn’t have a clue about the physics needed for knocking a building down but as you can tell by the video it seems like these guys just didn’t have enough OMMPH to do the job.

The building apparently was illegally built.

At the end of the clip there’s a second angle of the failed explosion which is followed by a hearty laugh from onlookers.
