Rube Goldberg Style Billiard Shot Spans 500 Feet, Multiple Floors, Nine Pool Tables

This is a video of the Rube Goldberg style billiard shot set up and executed by the folks at the Allstars Sports Bar in Bristol, England. It took eleven hours to arrange and test, and two minutes to run its course from beginning to end. Unfortunately, despite all the effort involved, it appears they couldn't get a person with a steady hand to film it. What the hell is wrong with you? Maybe don't drink so much before you start filming your lengthy billiard shot. I think I got motion sickness. *pukes into wastebasket* Of course it could have been the chicken sushi I made for lunch. "You ate raw chicken?" Well it was still partially frozen. I wanna be a chef like Gordon Ramsay.

Keep going for the shot, but don't expect any Oscars for best cinematography.

Thanks to Richard ZO, who agrees the best shots at bars come in glasses.

    It's a pretty cool trick, but it does sort of seem like the same two moves over and over. 1) The pool ball hits the back of a cue setting off another ball 2) a ball rolls and hits a ball, which then rolls down a guided path. But it gets points for the sheer scale of the thing.
