Blatant Video Theft Corner: Texas Stadium Imploding from the Inside

This is kind of cool and will probably bring a smile to the face of all of my readers who bleed burgundy and gold for the Redskins (I think there is only one of you, but I'm not above pandering). As many of you know, Texas Stadium got blowed up last week and it was as cool as expected.

In what can only be called the classiest move ever, the city of Irving, Texas sold promotional rights to the implosion to the Kraft company who used this as the logical jumping off point for their Macaroni & Cheese Cheddar Explosion campaign. Nice move guys. The positive flipside to this is that an 11-year-old kid named Casey Rogers got to push the button and bring the stadium down thanks to his winning essay about making a difference in his community. I'm sure he got some Cheddar Explosion out of the deal as well.

I'd be game to check this new Mac & Cheese out, but I'm a litte afraid now. It might be too packed with cheddar flavor if it was able to bring down a football stadium.

My favorite part of the video is the very end when the cable takes out the camera. That's about the coolest thing you could hope for in a situation like this. The only thing better would be if the cameras caught some guy running to the relative safety of midfield, while the building comes down around him.

Sadly, no one woke up out of their stupor as the nitro went off, denying me of my just reward. Oh well. Such is life.

  1. MMMM mac n cheese. I loved when Mom accidentally dumped too much salt in it-- I loved it that day. Was this the Cowboys stadium?
