A Thing About Putin’s Inauguration

In disaster movies movies, my favorite part is when they show the post-apocalyptic world. The camera pans across a desolate city, with well-known landmarks in the background, half-destroyed. The Eiffel Tower is overgrown with weeds. The White House is dark-gray, shabby, no windows. The Colliseum split at the seam of an earthquake. Majestic. You can never go wrong.

But showing landmarks is never enough for a global post-apocalyptic movie.There is an extra touch that helps build up the drama. Can you spot it in this next clip?

Got it? If not, here is a hint:
