Anyone who’s ever wanted to see Spider-Man played out in dominoes is in for a treat, thanks to a group of enterprising experts with a considerable amount of precision and patience. In a video produced as part of a paid partnership with Marvel, YouTuber Hevesh5―real name Lily Hevesh, a virtuoso domino artist―shows off precisely how to make a variety of Spider-Man related domino structures before knocking them all down at the end, of course.

Starting off by showing the laborious process of creating enormous Spider-Man, Venom, and Marvel icons entirely out of thousands of dominoes, the three-person team ultimately constructed an intricate series of 10,000 total dominoes, all primed to fall down in a massive chain reaction.

In full, the project included a Spider-Man face, the spider image he wears on his chest, a web, and a precarious, expertly crafted vertical domino wall spelling out the name Venom. The only thing more satisfying than watching the whole thing being painstakingly built is watching it all come down in the end.

Anybody curious to see the whole dramatic fall-down can do so by checking out the minute-long video embedded above, which shows the entire climax without any cuts.
