Tempe Officials Release Uber-Crappy Video of Dam Bursting

Tempe officials released surveillance footage of Tuesday night's dam burst, and if you were expecting some awesome, apocalyptic wave overtaking the dry riverbed, don't get your hopes up -- the video sucks.

The quality of the video resembles that of the Paris Hilton sex tape, and the content is far less exciting.

All you see is a brief flash and then a whole-lotta-nothin'.

Check out the video after the jump.
