Have you ever attempted something so perplexing that even those around you couldn't decipher your intentions? Well, a recent viral video on social media perfectly captures this sentiment. The video, titled "A level? That's for AMATEURS!", showcases a construction project that will leave you scratching your head.

In the video, a builder can be seen working on what appears to be a wall. However, the execution of the project is far from conventional. As viewers watch in disbelief, the comments section beneath the video explodes with a mix of confusion, humor, and disbelief.

One user commented, "You ever do something so f***ed people don't even know what you were trying for?" The response was quick, with another user humorously pointing out, "What? It's standing, isn't it?" This exchange perfectly encapsulates the bewilderment and amusement surrounding the video.

Amidst the sea of comments, one user tagged @alphastructural, suggesting that perhaps the builders had consumed all their levels. This witty remark garnered plenty of laughs and further added to the viral nature of the video. Other comments included playful references to wrestling, with one user exclaiming, "LET'S GET READY TO CRUUUMMMMBLEEE!!!!"

While the video is undeniably humorous, some viewers couldn't help but draw comparisons to their own experiences. One user shared a personal anecdote about two former colleagues who started their own construction business. They jokingly claimed, "You can tell exactly how drunk we got throughout the night looking at how we painted the walls." It seems that everyone has encountered a similar situation at some point.

Criticism also arose regarding the quality of the construction. Observant viewers questioned the peculiar appearance of the bricks and the conspicuous gaps in the mortar. Although the video is meant to be a sarcastic representation of subpar building techniques, it serves as a reminder that such structures do exist in reality.

Despite the questionable craftsmanship, some viewers found solace in the fact that this construction was still deemed better than plaster and matchstick walls. Others sarcastically suggested adding a level line on the cup to assist with the construction process, highlighting the absurdity of the situation.

The video concludes with the structure still standing, albeit precariously. This prompts a user to remark, "It's still standing though." Clearly, the builder's unorthodox methods have somehow defied expectations.

As the video gained traction, it attracted attention from various corners of the internet. One user praised the builder's unconventional approach, labeling them as clever. However, others expressed dismay at the waste of materials, emphasizing the importance of responsible construction practices.

In the midst of it all, there are always those who will do anything for a few upvotes. One user humorously remarked, "Some people do some really dumb sh*t for upvotes." This highlights the lengths people are willing to go to for a moment of online fame.

Ultimately, the video provides a comical and entertaining glimpse into the world of construction mishaps. While it may not be the most reliable method, it does offer a reminder of the importance of skilled craftsmanship and attention to detail in the building industry.

In the end, we can't help but wonder what the builders of the Acropolis would say about the construction techniques displayed in this video. Perhaps they would be grateful for the progress made over the centuries, or maybe they would simply shake their heads in disbelief.

So, the next time you encounter a less-than-perfect construction project, just remember this video and be thankful that your own walls are standing strong. And who knows, maybe this unconventional approach will inspire some to think outside the box in their own building endeavors.

You ever do something so f***ed people don't even know what you were trying for?


What? It's standing isn't it? @alphastructural?


I think the other guys drank all their levels.




somebody said "That's a job. Well, Done."


Reminds me of a couple of guys I used to work with, they opened up their own shop. As they told me "You can tell exactly how drunk we got throughout the night looking at how we painted the walls." It went from pretty good to a little sloppy to needed an emergency fix before they opened for customers.


Slap some render on, no one will spot it


Real question: why do the bricks look like that, and why are there always huge gaps in the mortar? (i know this video is a sarcastic example of this type of building, but i've seen videos of real structures built like this)


Still better than plaster and matchstick walls.


gotta put a level line on the cup, it'll help
