Hundreds of people looked on in person as the Georgia Dome fell Monday.
Many of those onlookers recorded the big moment for those who couldn’t be there, and for posterity.

But footage was heavily marred for one very unhappy cameraman when a MARTA bus rolled into view and hit the brakes.

The cringe-worthy video was also posted on Twitter Monday morning, with James Crugnale lamenting that he’d been streaming the Dome for 40 minutes before the bus stopped in front of the camera as it imploded.

TFW you stream the #GAdome being demolished for 40 minutes and a bus stops in front of the camera at the exact moment it implodes
And what does MARTA have to say about all this?
“Given the potential dangers of bringing down the largest structure of its kind... If this is the biggest story, we’re really glad about that,” Chief Marketing and Communications Officer Goldie Taylor told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Over on Twitter, Taylor “sincerely apologized” on MARTA’s behalf for ruining the live shot.
Then, she trolled.
Hi @weatherchannel. On behalf of @martaservice, we sincerely apologize for ruining your live-shot for the #DomeImplosion. We found this footage, in case you need it. pic.twitter.com/6jsralJhvF— G O L D I E. (@goldietaylor) November 20, 2017
