Pontiac Silverdome auction preview video has been shot by WDIV in Detroit Tuesday. In the Pontiac Silverdome auction preview video, viewers and probably potential buyers are taken on a guided tour and walk back down memory lane.

The Pontiac Silverdome auction preview video showcases the dome in its current state of disarray, after its roof collapsed over a year ago. Now, as can be seen in the Pontiac Silverdome auction preview video, it looks like the Mother Nature is reclaiming the area, and turning the dome into a state where humans didn't inhabit the earth.

It would seem like something that the Pontiac Silverdome auction preview video came straight out of a post-apocalyptic film.

Most often than not, vacated fields are torn down or replaced. However, when the Detroit Lions moved out of the Pontiac Silverdome to go to Ford Field 12 years ago, nobody touched it. Now, it is still standing, as can be seen in the Pontiac Silverdome auction preview video, albeit altered drastically inside.

The structure has started to break apart, and the elements seem to be reclaiming what was and is tearing down the former home of the Detroit Lions. What remains now, as shown in the Pontiac Silverdome auction preview video, is akin to what one would see on an episode of 'Life After People.'

Pictures of the current stature of the dome have been shared on Twitter.

Pontiac Silverdome auction preview video can be watched below. The Pontiac Silverdome auction on May 21 is putting on sale anything and everything inside the dome is for sale, including seats, scoreboard, popcorn machines and even toilets. The Pontiac Silverdome was bought by its quaint owner for a reportedly $583,000 purchase price in 2009.

 

The Pontiac Silverdome auction preview video below was shot by WDIV in Detroit on Tuesday to see how it's doing ever since its inflatable roof started collapsing.
