In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Oregon Department of Transportation dynamiting a whale, the Oregon Historical Society scanned the original 16mm film at 4k resolution.

If you were previously unaware of this important historical event, please take this opportunity to familiarize yourself with it now.

If you would prefer to access this critical historical document via YouTube instead of as a 2.4GB mp4 file, it is available here:

@khm It's best to download the 2.4 GB file since you never know if/when YouTube takes it down.

@joeo10 Of course, that's why I linked it first. But I felt it valuable to notify that Google currently operates a whale explosion replay service.
