The biggest story of the day regarding the Georgia Dome’s implosion? It wasn’t that the booming roar of dynamite jolted people awake from miles away. Nor was it that two sections of the walls didn’t fall like they were supposed to. It was a single MARTA bus.

The Weather Channel had been live-streaming the Dome for 40 minutes when the detonations finally began, and then with impeccable timing, a MARTA bus pulls up and stops, directly in front of the cameraman’s shot. Now it’s all anyone on the internet can talk about—and is making national headlines from Sports Illustrated to TMZ.

Everyone saying the MARTA bus blocking the live shot of the #GADome imploding is "the most Atlanta thing ever" is wrong. The "most Atlanta thing ever" is that there was a WALL STILL STANDING AFTER AN IMPLOSION.

The one time you're not wishing the MARTA bus would just get here already… https://t.co/ziydRuSgXP

Also, that MARTA bus had a PSA on the side about how to spot a stroke. Which the camera man was having.

You know that thing in movies where someone is standing there, and a bus comes across the shot, and afterwards they're gone?
The Georgia Dome just pulled that off in real life. https://t.co/QUQnRE7nTf

Some days you're the Georgia Dome, others you're the bus. But you're always the guy in the background losing his shit. https://t.co/FBpkqcRAMR
