It looks like the bottom is falling, but the feet still report solid ground and logic dictates, that the bottom can't just be falling off.
This situation is in no way comparable to a situation, where all the senses report the bottom is indeed falling off.
The interesting thing to me was, that noone tried to stand on the supports struts. The only seemingly stable part of the bottom.

Actually it seems like a real commercial. (in the sense of NOT a real prank)
Seems real, but i think they are actors.
Whether they use actors in Commercials is debatable (in the sense that people that gets paid to act in Commercials often are not "actors" )
Logic has little to do (not enough time) with instinctual reactions, but you are perfectly right , think how much money they could have saved in training airplane pilots by NOT building "real" flight simulators (capable of reproducing besides the "visual" part and cloche/pedals feedback also the acceleration/deceleration/vibrations/etc. feelings).

Just knowing, that nothing bad can happen, makes all the difference.
It's sort of like trying to tickle oneself. The brain knows where and how you will be tickled, before you even do it.

Well, as a matter of fact the issue is that there are not enough studies on the latter, particularly because of lacking of volunteers .... . (besides the actual monetary costs )
Yep, and still one can't get the same stress reaction from a pilot, sitting in a crashing simulator. than from one sitting in a crashing plane.
