You need a sound system with a lot of power and a great sub (turned up to house shaking level) to get the right effect of this video. {...}

You would actually.

The engine sound would be propigated through the hull of the booster who's relative velocity to the camera is much lower than the speed of sound. (effectively 0 )

"Spaceflight on the cheap" could become a reality with this. All you need is an ICBM, a good EVA suit and a parachute

The whole thing could have a mass smaller than 500 kg.

Default N1 Videos

I found three rare N1 videos... I'm not sure if all of them are actually the N1 (as in, is the explosion the real deal?) but it is worth posting. Remember that the N1 was Russia's attempt at a Moon rocket.

All 4 of the N-1 launches were unsuccessful, sadly, but the videos were accurate. In the end it was simply too complicated!

The first video, although they say it is footage of the first launch, is actually footage of the N1-6L launch which was the third test flight which occurred in 1972. The second video is footage of the first launch (N1-3L) in 1969. The third video is N1-5L, also in 1969 which was not a test of the launch abort system, the rocket in fact exploded several seconds after launch, destroying the pad and surrounding complexes. It did trigger the launch abort system, however and I'm not sure if I've ever seen that particular footage of it.
