“This is the craziest video yet,” you’ve no doubt heard hundreds of times over the course of the past month. From us, even. It seems like every day new, more mindgrape-crushing footage emerges of the devastating tsunami that rocked the northeastern coast of Japan one month ago on March 11th.

With no more introduction needed, this time, it’s absolutely true. (Caution: this gets real.)

Almost every video we’ve posted, and every other video we’ve seen, has been shot from some type of birds-eye position, be it from a rooftop or some safely elevated location. The tragic thrill of this video is in its ground-floor view of the wall of water chasing the truly frightened residents of Tohoku.

Can you even begin to imagine that? Can you even begin to wrap your mind around that?
