Watch 275,000 Clacking Dominos Break a World Record

The only thing more delightful than an elaborate Lego display is an elaborate domino display. And German outfit Sinners Domino Entertainment has engineered a record-breaker that will be hard to top. The team used 12 builders for eight days to create "Enjoy Your Life,” a dizzying display with 275,000 dominos arranged in themed obstacles. Some of the celebration-of-life choices are a little curious—the display features Egyptian pyramids, Psy, and a scene from Titanic—but no one can really complain about 10 full minutes of clacking dominos.
