Giant [CGI] bolide hits [CGI] Earth

Japanese scientists (or film makers high on science)
ran a full on CGI model of an asteroid smacking into
Earth. The bolide is approximately the breadth of
Japan, and is traveling at some 70,000 km/hr (shown
slower for effect...apparently). Needless to say the
results don't bode well for life.

The video is on You Tube and in Japanese. Thankfully
the video speaks for itself.


The entire film is explained in the sidebar on the
right. Though, be warned, it is in engrish.

Oh, and one more thing. Since this is a Japanese film,
bonus points go to anyone who can guess which country
bites it first?
