Watch a replica of Fenway Park being built using LEGOs

Two minutes in time-lapse, it took 450 hours in real time

Not everyone loves Fenway Park, never mind the Red Sox. But most everyone loves LEGOs, so even a Yankees fan might enjoy this two-minute time-lapse video:

From the YouTube description:

LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston created this time-lapse video of Boston's beloved Fenway Park being built out of LEGO® bricks. The model will be on permanent display inside MINILAND, a Boston landscape made entirely out of LEGO® bricks, when LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston opens May 23.

The 12-square-foot (4' x 3') replica was constructed from about 28,000 bricks, weighs 68 pounds and took 450 hours to design and build.

How long before David Ortiz snaps a selfie?

And if you were wondering, as I was, what role those silver tubes are playing in the replica production, here's one reply left on YouTube: "Maybe he's gluing the pieces as he builds, hence a few builds & unbuilds to get things right. Looks like two tubes... one to blow air, one maybe to vacuum the fumes as it keeps moving where he's working."

More? This video isn't time-lapse, but does show Wrigley Field in Chicago and Miller Park in Milwaukee built using LEGOs.

Coincidentally, the Red Sox play their opening home game today at the real Fenway.
