World Record Domino Topple Paid Tribute To Red Wing Great
I recently discovered a video of a World Record Domino Topple from 2017 and something caught my eye. The domino topple was all based around games. From video games, to sporting games, to board games, there were so many different types included. I noticed a hockey jersey near the sports setup and recognized a familiar number. They designed the jersey after the late-great Gordie Howe. You can see the Detroit Red Wings jersey with "Howe 9" on the back.
It's a pretty sweet tip-of-the-hat to Gordie after his passing in 2016. You can first spot it around the 2:36 mark. The whole thing is mesmerizing and sweet. The Jersey itself is toppled at the 11:13 mark of the video, but as you can see just as in real life, it wasn't so easy bringing Howe down, as the left sleeve remained standing. Regardless of the incident, it's an awesome video that has some pretty sweet effects.
