Watch the Metrodome disappear in 45 seconds

It's hard to believe it has been just 99 days since the Vikings played their last game in the Metrodome. Since then, the roof has been deflated and two separate explosions have helped bring down the 30-year-old baseball and football stadium.

Here's how the on-the-ground demolition looked, in a time-lapse sequence of the photos the Minnesota Vikings have put on their website. The images were taken by EarthCam, Inc., which has three cameras trained on the site of the new stadium.

Note: Some of the changes are hard to catch, so make sure you're watching the video in HD on YouTube.
