One Star Wars fan has been left feeling heartbroken after their dog destroyed their 5,000-piece LEGO Star Destroyer.
For so many years, LEGO has been a huge part of our lives - whether it's building a small house or indulging in one of LEGO’s modern-day premium sets, such as the epic Optimus Prime from Transformers. It’s also fair to say that LEGO is for everyone, no matter the age.
Building LEGO can be a very therapeutic experience as we calmly piece together thousands of bricks and then marvel at the work of art hours later. It’s perhaps not so therapeutic when my toddler niece waddles towards my LEGO Tallneck from the Horizon series. What’s more, it can become a nightmare as we edge closer to the last few pieces of completing our LEGO set, knowing that one dodgy move could bring it all crashing down undoing hours of work.
Sometimes, things can happen beyond our control and our beloved LEGO sets can crumble to pieces before our very watery eyes. As reported by Dexerto, one such incident seemingly happened to TikTok user polskihussar after his dog ran passed him down the stairs knocking a LEGO Star Destroyer into pieces as if it was a recreation of Alderaan being blown up by the Death Star.
At the time of writing, the clip featuring the destroyed (no pun intended) LEGO Star Destroyer has gone viral garnering over 20 million views on the social media platform. Polskihussar, who is said to be a very devoted Star Wars fan and cosplayer, was transporting his LEGO Star Destroyer from one area of his house to another. However, I do have some suspicions about the authenticity of the video and by the looks of things, so do many of the commenters. Who sets up a camera at the bottom of the stairs while you're carrying LEGO sets? Call me cynical, it could be genuine, but it’s not impossible that the tragic ordeal was staged.
If the video was staged, it’s certainly served its purpose by going viral and I guess some people just like to see the world burn. If it is genuine, then I find this video truly heartbreaking and I’m now going to hug my dog.
