Everyone has a hobby.

This past Sunday, a man named Jelle put a video on his YouTube page showcasing his latest creation — a contraption he calls the “Marble Tsunami.” That might sound like an exaggeration, but once you see it in action, it won’t take long for you to realize the name is perfectly apt.

“This Marble Run “Marble Tsunami” has 4 tipping containers holding […] more than 11,000 marbles,” says Jelle. He also notes that the sound is so “deafening” that the final product will have a “noise [dampening] housing and glass panels on the front.” You can see more photos from the build on Jelle’s Facebook page.
