Some theories say that it was shot with 2 cameras and then reconstructed.

Remember the Escherian Stairwell Mantra, "Captain Disillusion is is always right. I will listen to Disillusion, I will not ignore Disillusion's recommendations. Disillusion is God. And if this ever happens again, Disillusion will personally rip your lungs out."

The guy who hoaxed this illusion is just skilled, so if y'all are making him out to be a bad guy who doesn't deserve those views, you are wrong because he put many hours into this magic trick and he just badass

You are a national treasure. Seriously. I personally put you up there with Bob Ross, Mr Rogers, Steve Irwin and Lance Burton. You just want to watch the world learn. Here’s to you, Captain!

I enjoyed this video minus the fact I was eating a lemon, cheese, and some mandarins. Then eventually the lemon sprayed and went in my eye. I ended up watching the whole video with my right eye closed

Would have been awesome if at the end he jumped through the portal that ran away and came out the one on his back. Not quite sure how that would work though, it's making my brain hurt.

2001 put you into the story (what there was of one). Except for the dialog between HAL and the young man, it swept you along into its "who knows what to expect next" adventure. A true classic.

Even if the stairwell was real, how would they even get in and out of it? There were no doors and they'll keep looping trying to find a way out

that last clip. it's not "cuz you were a kid" cuz as an "adult" Star Wars: The Force Awakens gave me the same feeling as when i was a kid and saw Star Wars: A New Hope. it's cuz he's looking in the wrong places. bloated budget digital effects heavy films of the modern age are losing a financial battle to torrent sites and affordable 4k TV screens, in order to make a Star Trek or an Avengers it has to be commercially viable. that means sacrificing the artistry in the process for the spectacle of craft. he'll get the 2001 vibes from something like Her, or Moon. these are films that consider the story before the budget, the process before the product, and don't give a single swimming fuck what Neil DeGrasse Tyson thinks. it's a difference in focus between (what Captain Disillusion is alluding to) Joe Campbell's 12 steps, and the Michael Bay method.

Also it would not be possible to leave the stairs, they would be stuck there forever and no one would ever know about it if it were real.
