7,000 Falling Dominoes Make Van Gogh's Starry Night Even More Beautiful

FlippyCat—easily the most patient YouTube celebrity—spent around 11 hours recreating Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night using 7,067 carefully stacked dominoes that were then sent tumbling in a glorious chain reaction.


And thankfully, there was a camera rolling the whole time.

FlippyCat actually had to build this setup twice, because the first attempt was foiled when a screw fell from the camera rig above triggering gravity to do its thing. But that small setback actually let him improve the effects of the swirling clouds, so it was less of a failure, and more of a forced re-evaluation. [YouTube via Archie McPhee’s Geyser of Awesome]

I’d like a Van Gogh domino sequence that shows him losing an ear and getting a bandage.
