This is, of course, not gibberish.  Jaime took footage on his own
later clearly showing the buildings from many angles including
from their backside and estimated the distance to these buildings
from the apparent location of the cameraman and this estimate was
used by Village Labs to give a rough estimate of the apparent
size of the object.  Believe me, these buildings are not inches
tall.
