Yo, why wouldn't you put up the version that is written in English.  Can't believe you guys didn't realize it was a trick video

I don't give a shit about the stairs. What the fuck was the crazy nonsense text at the beginning of the video? Jakka bukkukebakka liku eatie shitti fucki doggi pussy

this is clearly clever editing, but I could see how this could "conceivably" work, but you'd have two obviously warped floors on each side...

Just like the end of "The Believer" with Ryan Gosling. One of the GREATEST films. Examines self loathing, racism, and neo-nazism. Of course Gosling is amazing in it. Blows my mind every time I see it.

Yeah it's a hoax.  They're trying to create a myth about the school through kickstarter.  Just clever video editing and a pretty awesome idea.
