Wow.  WTF happened, I wonder?  Really cool to see an entire show's worth of fireworks go off in a matter of seconds, though.

I especially liked the thermonuclear effect at the end.

So much derp here. Who still hand lights explosives like that? Darwin missed quite a few boats here..

I haven't seen a farkup like that since I was in the military.

Al!

I've always wanted to start my own fireworks company, just so I could do displays like this.  "Display starts at 8pm; be on time or miss it!"

That sure looks intentional. The fireworks look like a bunch of timed charges rigged to cables so that each one gets closer to the audience.

I think this went as planned - a "mascaletta" is held during daytime.

According to this Russian source, http://www.1tv.ru/news/world/246470 , this vid comes from part of the daily fireworks for the feast of St. Tryphon  in the Italian city of Adelphia.

Here is a smaller, saner mascaletta held in Valencia:

Fireworks and Darwin? Then you need to watch this or this or this (with pron music for whatever reason)

Why you bastard. You just RUINED my Christmas! Again!

Subby promised "the best fireworks display. EVAR" and failed to deliver.  It was cool, don't get me wrong, but no where close to the best....

As someone previously mentioned, who were those idiots that kept congregating around the firing lines?  I am surprised Darwin didn't pay a visit...

I've never wanted to have a 10' pole to push with so bad. So many people need to be prevented from ever spawning offspring. *sits around like a moron with his camera out* DERP.

Hey now, we need someone to give us awesome videos of dumb things being done.

I do not think this was a fail, looks intentional.

If you REALLY like fireworks, I highly recommend going to the Pyrotechnics Guild International Convention public shows (in early-mid August, next 3 years are in Iowa, Wyoming, and NW Indiana)

We went to the grand finale night in 2012 in Indiana, and I've been to some pretty large fireworks presentations (4th of July in Chicago, Disney World shows, etc), and this absolutely blew those away.

Turn speakers UP

(or down, if you have cats)

Last time we hire the Dresden Fireworks Company to put on a show. Looked like some carpet-bombing there near the end.
