XL-1s bites the dust...live!

Wanna see an XL-1s break into a zillion pieces?

Check out the trailer for "Showtime" starring Robert de Niro and Eddie Murphy.

Even though he's a stunt man...the way his knee buckles back...that had to hurt.

For the people who want to download this thing instead
of viewing it online, here is the url:

http://a772.g.akamai.net/5/772/51/a2c2ab9e721dd8/1a1a1aaa2198c627970773d80669d84574a8d80d3cb12453c02589f25382f668c9329e0375e8178ef01f92fa69e054bd2a8f/showtime_m480.mov

It is 16.591 KB large (16 mb)

The scene with the XL1(s) breaking is very small though.
But it hurts.. damn.. studios do got money to waste. Perhaps
it was an empty shell? (lets hope so)

Is it just me or does the "akamai" URL not work ("Invalid URL")?

After you paste the URL in your browser, look at it closely and you'll see there is a blank space following one of the "/" marks...all you have to do is delete the empty space and it'll work.

Tried that too, still doesnt seem to work (you're referring to the space before that collection of 1's and a's, yes?).

UPDATE
Never mind, I've worked it out, it wasnt including the end bit of the URL (with the filename in) when I copy and pasted it.
Thanks for your help.
