Amazing San Francisco model built out of match sticks

Laughing Squid pointed us to
a nifty video created by Scott Weaver today. The artist has been working on a mockup of San Francisco made out of matchsticks for the last thirty five years, complete with weaving, secret passageways through which ping pong balls can navigate the structure. We’re not sure what’s more amazing, the fact that it’s made out of matchsticks, the time that went into building it or the sheer awesomeness of the model, but one thing is certain: this video is going on loop during our next Gadling happy hour.
