This time lapse of someone building a Lego Millenium Falcon takes some darkly hilarious turns

We’ve all seen those time lapse videos of people doing something impressive – painting the Mona Lisa onto a hairless cat, creating a miniature version of Weston-Super-Mare out of used cotton buds, getting Boris Johnson to say something truthful – that kind of stuff. They’re good, but they all lack what this time lapse video of comedian Adrian Gray building a Lego Millennium Falcon has in spades: the element of surprise.

The sketch has only been up on Twitter for less than a day, at the time of writing, and it’s already been viewed more than 125,000 times. It’s fair to say that the unfolding drama isn’t what people expect.

But, mostly, it’s simply been attracting praise like this:

Game developer, David Gaider, is obviously very familiar with the trials and tribulations of Lego construction, because we completely agree with this.
