Would It Be Possible for Godzilla to Exist?
And how many Taco Bell dogs would we have to feed him? Those tie-in commercials were unforgivable.

As special effects have improved and budgets have gone up, so has Godzilla’s size. In his newest incarnation, Godzilla is significantly taller and heavier than the statue of liberty, but would it even be physically possible for an animal like that to exist?
According to Vsauce’s Jake Roper, the answer is nope. Godzilla would collapse under his own weight faster than a bloated, special effects-heavy franchise reboot. Even if he could, the movies vastly underestimate how quickly the world’s entire population would become Kaiju food.

- Yes, Godzilla (1998) really was as bad as you thought
- Has Godzilla terrorized you? Then you need to call this attorney
- RiffTrax Live’s Kickstarter to riff 1998’s Godzilla passed its goal in just over 12 hours
