Earthquake Caught On Video During Car Dealership Commercial

The 5.9 magnitude earthquake that rocked the East Coast this morning shocked a lot of people in that part of the country and one of those people was a local car dealer in Virginia who was filming a commercial for his shop when the earthquake started.

Here’s a look at the commercial:

You can tell how rare earthquakes are in that part of the country by the question “what in the world was that” followed by the answer “I think it was an earthquake.”

If the same thing happened in California during a commercial taping everyone would have avoided falling objects then went right back to work without a second thought.

Did you feel the effects of today’s tremors? I’m in Illinois where it was said to have been felt however I didn’t notice anything during the morning hours.
