A massive Tsunami struck the coast of Japan early this morning. You can see videos from The New York Times, CNN, Citizentube and The Guardian.

Meanwhile, videos like the ones below are starting to appear on YouTube.

                                                         
                                                         

Looks like Japan's strict building codes are the reason why so many people survived the incident.

While I am grateful for the fact that we live in a day and age where websites like YouTube allow for the quick and free flow of information, it would be awesome if advertising -- particularly the happy, cheerful type -- would spare us during such a crisis.
