Video: There is something oddly satisfying about watching 50,000 dominoes fall in a wave

We would actually love to do this as long as we didn't have to clean up after…

We were guilty of spending an inordinate amount of time playing with dominoes as kids and as such, we have never quite gotten over our fascination with them.

There is nothing quite like flicking one over and watching the rest of them fall in a line.

Now we never quite made it past maybe 80-100 dominoes because our mother told us she’d give us the wooden spoon if she had to pick up one more “feckin’ domino” after us.

This video is a Guinness World Record attempt for the "Most Dominoes Toppled in a Circle Bomb/Circle Field". Yes, you would have been forgiven for thinking that is a made up category but it is entirely real.

A team of 16 Germans set up the 54,321 dominoes - which took a number of days - and you can see the result below.

We thought this was absolutely deadly…
