The now widely-circulated Fox Sports video inside the collapse of the Metrodome's roof shows two holes open in the Teflon roof and dump tons of snow into the Red Zone.

Although the video is just 30 seconds, it reveals a lot about how the roof failed. We've got a Zapruder Film-like frame-by-frame analysis of how the Metrodome became an outdoor stadium.

UPDATE:
EXCLUSIVE VIDEO ANALYSIS SHOWS SOMEBODY WAS INSIDE AND ESCAPED AS ROOF BEGAN TO COLLAPSE!

First a tiny trickle of snow starts streaming in--it almost looks like salt:

The roof begins to sag under the weight of the snow:

Then a hole opens in the roof and tons of snow pour in:

Snow blankets Mall of America field -- thank God no one was under it!

It spreads over much of the Red Zone--is this Lambeau Field?

Then another hole opens up and blankets the other sideline:

You have to see it to believe it. Here's the 30 second video of the Metrodome's collapse:
