Compare the interior and exterior photos, then tell me how thick the ''blocks'' are.

No more than one or two photoshops* thick, it looks to me--

* Not sure whether this is a Metric or Imperial measurement--perhaps Empherical.

@Herb
This is no photoshop joke - the wall was 10cm ~4" thick. It took some 6 hrs. to get them all out because the builders had used a very sturdy brick cement especially suited for the stones' material. The total removal costs amount to some 15000€

I normally never applaud vandalism, but I must admit these people were quite creative, though I can’t understand what message they were trying to relay by doing this...

It's for real, are a couple different interior images.
And if NBC had it, it must be true! Right.
