Dance-powered human pile driver

Via the Miss Cellania humor blog.


  1. That is awesome! I love it.

  2. Stan, you're the best blogger ever.

  3. My wife is from Thailand and one time visiting the family, I actually had the pleasure of watching this method of pile driving. Bangkok and the surrounding delta is made up of clay which requires the extensive use of piles in buildings. I'm sure this method has been used for centuries and is cheaper than owning a pile driving machine.
    Anyway, it is quite entertaining to watch. This video has been really making the rounds. I wish I had recorded the workers I saw doing this, I'd share it here. Maybe next time I see it when I'm visiting Thailand.
