It's a landslide!

Posted October 7, 2008

No, I'm not talking about the election.  Here's some amazing video of a landslide from somewhere in the world.  I read one of the comments that says this is from Japan.

Is this real?  I could be convinced either way?  The poles in the foreground move oddly, but the trees sliding in the background appear to move as large objects in the distance would.

What do you think?

UPDATE:  A viewer says it's real.  He writes, "This video is from a landslide that occurred in Nara Prefecture back in August 2004. Satellite pictures of the aftermath can be viewed on this site, as well as the following video:"

    How cool. It looks like it was expected since they had blocked the highway and had a camera set up.

    I know Brian said that he wasn't referring to the election, but seriously, shouldn't someone send this to Senator McCain and Governor Palin?
