Through TikTok, the Qn Real Estate account shared a video that went viral, demonstrating a technique that apparently “defies the laws of gravity”.

“See how he puts a mixture on the brick and see how it stays fully supported and flying in the air,” says a voice off camera, apparently the architect of the work. “I mean, there’s nothing to support it, it just sticks there like magic.”

In the comments, many users expressed their doubts about the resistance of a roof built with this technique in case of earthquakes. “No, well that doesn’t last, bro. For me that you graduated in classes on-line“commented one user.

“The construction of those roofs is supposed to be prohibited, due to the issue of the detachment of partitions over time, or tremors,” another person wrote.

However, other users indicated that the technique is not new and has proven to be reliable. “Old churches still have that method and centuries and it doesn’t fall off,” one user commented.

In another video they demonstrate a similar technique for laying bricks:
