My college roommate and I loved everything about our first apartment, except for the noise. All day and all night long we heard creaks and groans coming from the ceiling, interspersed with occasional thumps and thuds. This of course made us curious about our neighbors, and eager to catch sight of these giants. There must be, we figured, at least four 250 pound men crashing about up there. Then one day we finally spotted them leaving their apartment, and they turned out to be... two very small girls. And a beagle.
Unless you live on the top floor, you're never completely immune from this particular kind of noise — no matter who lives upstairs. And even if your neighbors claim that they're only tiptoeing around the kitchen, sometimes it sure sounds like they're playing a particularly violent game of indoor rugby. The folks at Above Average have created this video that imagines what your upstairs neighbors are really up to — with hilarious results.
