From my vantage spot at my living room window I saw two cars stop cold, one guy get off his bike and just stand next to it, and 3 people stop in their tracks. No one moved for the full two minutes. I found it rather astounding to watch, but in reality as I live in yachupitzville it was not really all that impressive.
Then someone posted this video taken from their office in Tel Aviv. At first it is not all that impressive, but by about the 30 second mark it gets a little eerie.
